The Oxford Farming Conference hosts around 50 scholar delegates at every conference. The scholars are sponsored by commercial organisations, charities, agricultural societies, Young Farmers clubs, colleges and universities.

This page is for the scholars who have been, are planning to come or are just interested in what scholars do and experience at the conference.

What scholars should expect if they attend

If you come to the conference as a scholar you will join the main conference delegates. We tend to have around 450 delegates who include farmers, food chain representatives, policy makers, academics, scientists and journalists. You will be encouraged to join fellow scholars to attend the whole conference and to join a very valuable session sponsored by McDonald's to help you make the most of the incredible opportunity that Oxford will give you. You will learn, meet some inspiring and influential people and have an opportunity to have your say in conference question times and the famous Oxford Union Debate.
