Partner with us

Partnerships with the Blavatnik School can take a range of forms and involve organisations in the public, private and non-governmental sectors.

Organisations are involved in activities like research collaborations, fellowships, executive programmes and workshops, as well as working directly with our students by helping them enhance their professional skills, or hosting summer project placements.

Partnership opportunities
Fund research

You can play a part in supporting an international community of scholars, practitioners and researchers who apply a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach to address some of the most urgent problems facing governments and societies today.

From our ground-breaking global tracker that provides comparative, real-time data on government responses to COVID-19, to our global centre of knowledge on cross-sector partnerships for better social outcomes, to the vital research to strengthen law, norms and institutions to restrain, regulate and prevent armed conflict, our research projects are leading the way in innovative solutions to the most pressing global issues.

The School co-hosts globally impactful and collaborative research programmes that operate across multiple sectors. The programmes conduct and foster research and debate, influencing both public and private sector policy.

World-class teaching

We are home to world-class academics and practitioners, as well as a team of up-and-coming postdoctoral fellows, who provide the backbone of research support for the School. Our teaching is world-class, bringing together a vibrant and diverse community of people committed to improving government and public policy.

Partnership opportunities
Sponsor our teaching facilities

The Blavatnik School of Government is based in an award-winning building in the heart of Oxford that provides a purpose-built home for a vibrant academic community. We offer exclusive supporter opportunities and recognition in this iconic building through sponsorship of our teaching rooms including our flagship lecture theatres, seminar or group working rooms.

Your support will enable us to continue to offer our students and research teams the state-of-the-art facilities they need.

Partnership opportunities

We have an inspiring community of global leaders who volunteer their time to mentor our students through their studies and offer professional guidance on their careers. The resulting knowledge exchange is beneficial and enjoyed by both mentor and mentee, and many of our mentors have continued to mentor students over several years.
