Academics at Oxford
Students interested in studying in Oxford over the academic year need to have high academic aspirations and be intellectually ambitious. Oxford students learn through a unique tutorial system. In a tutorial, a tutor and one, two, or three students spend an hour discussing the topic of the tutorial. Occasionally, a tutorial is replaced with faculty classes or seminars. Students are expected to do substantial independent library work and periodically produce written essays and oral presentations for their tutorials. Since the instruction is individualized, Oxford does not have a course catalog. Students in the Oxford Academic Year Experience study the same subjects and often share tutorials with Oxford students. The student's academic experience will closely resemble the experience of an Oxford second year undergraduate. Most Oxford undergraduate degrees are three year degree programs.
