SCIO Online from Oxford

Discover the magic of Oxford with SCIO live and online from Oxford!


SCIO invites you to join us online for an intellectual adventure in Oxford.

I have loved being a part of SCIO this year, even with the unexpected transition to an online platform. Thanks to the professors and organizers, I was able to dive deeper into a subject that greatly matters to me. My reading challenged me, my classes encouraged me, and my professor guided me. Everyone who worked to put SCIO Online together did an amazing job at upholding the spirit of Oxford. I cannot imagine missing it – it has cultivated my personal and academic life for the better.

All tutorial seminars are synchronous, so you can discuss and debate live with likeminded peers from around the globe, and experience the tutorials – one-on-one meetings with tutors (faculty). Subjects include literature, theology, philosophy, science and religion, psychology, and more.

Speaking with real professors in Oxford, hearing their commentary on your own work, seeing them face to face nearly every day of the week - these things keep the spirit of quality education alive and well.

I loved the financial accessibility of the online program. Having it cut down from $7000 to $3000 made it much more affordable which was very nice.

What was especially fruitful and special to the SCIO Online experience were the tutorials. That one-on-one time with the professor engaged my thinking in new ways and challenged me to approach the material differently than I normally would have. It is an experience that I will carry with me throughout the rest of the studies and throughout the rest of my life.
