Molly and Jamie are doing a smashing job and this is all massively exciting! But for fear of failing to move on from what is no someone else’s party, the remainder of this shall be decidedly boring in format.Various bits of Oxford IV 2014 related news.:

6. Registration: International registration opens 1 August, IONA registration opens 1 September with 20 half-price IONA spots opening at the same time
7. Discount for new IONA universities
We want to make sure that the Oxford IV represents a competition that is accessible to all IONA universities. It is an international competition, but an IONA-centric one. Therefore, we are offering 20 team places at half price this year to IONA institutions who do not normally attend, or have not recently attended, the IV. These places will be assigned on the basis of competitive application, with spreading opportunities being the primary criterion. We believe that the Oxford IV should be accessible to all of IONA’s best debaters, regardless of the wealth of their society.
