SSO Overview

The Scholars’ Semester in Oxford

RadCam

The Scholars’ Semester in Oxford gives advanced, highly qualified students a chance to experience life as a Registered Visiting Student at one of the world’s great research universities.  Come for one or two semesters to find out what it’s like to study in a place where the libraries are excellent and the research culture is vibrant – and where you have to find your way around by foot or bicycle, rather than car.

You create your program from hundreds of tutorials to ensure that what you are studying fits your academic interests, and best prepares you for the next step in your academic or professional career.  Your individual tutorials (just you and your tutor debating for an hour each week) are complemented by discussion classes in discipline specific seminars where you can probe methodological questions more deeply, and by a course which looks at the British past and present, and invites you to consider just what history is and when it’s overwhelmed by myth or wishful thinking.

You will read and write more than you ever have done before and than you’d ever thought possible, and you will push yourself to new limits.

The Oxford Summer Programme

The Oxford summer Programme gives a wide variety of students – undergraduate, graduate, and non traditional – a chance to experience life at Oxford, home of one of the world’s great research universities. Come for five weeks as an Associate member of Wycliffe Hall to find out what it’s like to study in a place where the libraries are excellent and the research culture is vibrant – and where you have to find your way around by foot or bicycle, rather than car.

Choose two of our seminars and enjoy small discussion classes with your peers and seminar leader, and then individual tutorials (just you and your seminar leader debating in even more detail).  Join the rest of the group on a course which invites you to think about Christian life in Britain, a long settled island:  what do our surviving churches tell us about Christian life, and indeed life in general, in Britain from the earliest times to our own era?

You will read and write more than you ever have done before and you will push yourself to new limits, whilst enjoying Oxford in the summer – the perfect season for visiting its ancient buildings, experiencing Shakespeare in the open air, or trying your hand at punting, Oxford’s ergonomically unsound but entertaining means of water transport.
