Ochanomizu University was established in 1875 as Japan’s first national higher education institution for women. Today, the University, which takes only female students, is a pioneer in promoting women’s leadership in science and the arts.

Congratulations are extended to the 2017 Domus Prize winners and runners-up.
The Domus Prizes recognise outstanding communication and presentation skills, and were decided by a vote of the audience of Linacre students, Old Members, and Fellows who attended presentations by the six finalists (chosen by the Academic Committee from a long list of applicants) on July 1 in the Tanner Room in conjunction with the Linacre Gaudy. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about current student research, and the lively presentations were enjoyed very much by all who attended.
