Courses

As a Visiting Student at St Edmund Hall you can select courses from a maximum of three subject areas chosen from the list below.

Each term you will study one primary course and one secondary course. All of our courses are taught using the Oxford tutorial system. A tutorial is a one hour meeting with an academic expert in the subject, for which you will have usually prepared work such as an essay or a set of problems. For a primary course you will have eight tutorials and for a secondary course you will have four tutorials. 

The application form asks you to supply first and second choices for your courses. Please note that the Oxford system is very different from that at most US universities. The preferences you state on the application form will be used when considering your application, and based on these we will make you an offer of specific course options. Once this offer has been accepted it is extremely difficult to change your courses.
