THE University of Oxford has held its first in person event since the pandemic hit last year.

On Wednesday, the university hosted a panel event celebrating the centenary anniversary of women students being admitted to the university.

The event took place at the Sheldonian Theatre and was also live-streamed to an online audience on YouTube.

Women were first granted full membership to the university on October 7, 1920 and one week later were given the right to be awarded degrees.
