- Florian Brunner
I joined Oxford as an MPhil student in International Relations in 2022. Prior to the MPhil, I completed a BSc in Political Science at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), including an Erasmus+ semester at Sciences Po Paris. In parallel, I completed a BA in Romance Philology and Economics at LMU Munich. During my undergraduate studies, I worked as a research assistant at TUM and interned with the Permanent Representation of Germany to the EU.
Besides my studies, I am passionately committed to promoting equality of opportunities in higher education, including in Team Germany of Project Access and as Equality Representative at Nuffield College. Furthermore, I am a mediocre but passionate trombonist in several groups, including Green Templeton College Bigband and Musikkapelle Altötting e.V. At several occasions, I have also performed as a satirist and parodist (esp. of Bavarian politicians, book me!).
