Oxford Summer Programme

At the core of the Oxford Summer Programme are the seminars. Each student chooses two seminars in which the participants explore topics in small groups of like-minded students, all of whom have prepared with focused reading.  The experienced seminar leader steers the discussion, sometimes breaking the group up into smaller sub-groups, or perhaps holding the discussion in a museum, or guiding the group round sites in Oxford related to the seminar topic. Each student writes two essays for each seminar in preparation for the tutorials (individual meetings between tutor and student) – for many the highlight of the course.

The seminars vary from year to year. 

The Christianity in the British Isles course brings the whole group together for viewings, lectures, field trips, and discussions on the subject of the Christian life, and life in general, in the British Isles.
