Teaching for mathematics consists of University lectures, which play a key part in mathematics teaching, tutorials (one-to-one meetings with a specialist tutor), and, if appropriate and feasible, group tutorials with other Oxford undergraduates. For each tutorial, students will complete a set of questions from a problem sheet, submitting their solutions beforehand to be marked by the tutor. Full lecture notes and other supporting materials are available on the University’s virtual learning platform to which students will have full access once they are in Oxford.
Further useful information on the tutorial options in mathematics and statistics can be found here.
Please ignore information about how to apply, interviews, examinations etc. as this is intended only for matriculated students registered for degrees at Oxford. Also, please do not be put off by the fact that it is called a ‘BA’ in mathematics. Almost all first degrees at Oxford are BA degrees, whether the discipline is in humanities, social science, or science.
All students wanting to study mathematics and/or statistics at Oxford should have studied mathematics at their home universities for at least two years.
