The graduate culture at Corpus is characterised by academic seriousness combined with a lack of pretentiousness and a strong sense of community.


As well as providing excellent facilities, the College fosters a lively intellectual, multi-disciplinary and international environment, with strong representation in the humanities, social sciences and the sciences in the Middle Common Room, as well as good interaction with the Fellowship. Each graduate member has a Graduate Adviser assigned from the Fellowship from the appropriate discipline, who, along with the student's supervisor, the Tutor for Graduates and the President, takes an interest and monitors the academic progress of our graduates.
