Oxford University gets first female vice-chancellor since year 1230
Professor Louise Richardson, mother-of-three and current principal at St Andrews University is set to become the first female vice-chancellor of Oxford University.
She resumes duties next year subject to the approval of the institution's legislative body, known as Congregation.
Her appointment will make her Oxford's first female holder of the post since the first leader was appointed nearly eight centuries ago in 1230.
