Our Staff

The academic staff are all Oxford trained and / or active members of the relevant Oxford faculties (academic departments), have been in the city and university for many years, and are recognized academic leaders. You will be taught by people who really know the Oxford system, and who face the same challenges as you do, as you research in the libraries and muster your thoughts in answer to a probing question. The administrative and operations staff have a vision and passion for SCIO’s mission and your ability to thrive as part of it.

Directors of Study, Core Teaching, and Project faculty

SCIO’s directors of study, core teaching staff, and academic project coordinators are all exceptional scholars in their own right and are integrally involved in Oxford scholarship.
