create type contact_type as object (
home varchar2(50),
uni varchar2(50),
work varchar2(50));

create type contact_varray_type as varray(50) of contact_type;

create table student
(student_id number(5),
surname varchar2(25),
contact contact_varray_type);

insert into student (student_id, surname)
values (10000, 'brown');

UPDATE student SET contact = contact_varray_type
(contact_type (22, 'Fir tree street', 'Northampton', 'NN1 1NN'),
contact_type (2, 'Oak road', 'Bristol', 'BB1 3TR'),
contact_type (8, 'Apple', 'Close Northampton', 'NN3 8UU'));
