STUDENT GROUPS

Run by students, for students.

There are many existing social groups set up by OCA Students outside of this website. This page will point you to the groups you can join for peer support and interaction.

Some sites have more reliable information than others, so we also show you how confident you can trust information in these groups when it comes to OCA information, updates, policies and regulations.
