An Overview.

The Oxford African and Caribbean Society (ACS) is a student-run body at the University of Oxford, that represents students and alumni of African and Caribbean heritage and works to ensure that they are able to thrive at Oxford without having to compromise their cultural identity.

We are committed to the promotion of African and Caribbean culture and the social and educational development of tomorrow’s generation of gifted African and Caribbean students.


The AAC is our flagship access and outreach event, and is the UK’s largest Higher Education conference for students of African and Caribbean heritage.

Our unique emphasis on social and cultural capital allows us to draw valuable insights from our personal relatable experiences as students of African and Caribbean heritage at Oxford to build a confident, self-aware and independent generation of young black students, who feel empowered and equipped to shape their own lives in any direction they desire.
