Tutorial System Appeal

A World Class Education

The tutorial system is the jewel in the crown of an Oxford education. The depth and intensity of thought processes that emerge from tutorials is often life changing and stays with students forever. Students learn to think independently and analyse critically, skills that are crucial for developing academically, and for later life. 

However, cuts in Government and University funding to faculties and departments, in particular the humanities, have had a knock-on effect for colleges. It is vital that we act to protect our greatest asset by securing the future of tutorial teams at the House.

Since 2008, 14 posts have been fully or partially endowed, including in PPE, Geography and Chemistry. The ultimate aim, however, is to endow all 34 remaining posts. A gift to the Tutorial Fund of any size will allow us not only to secure our tutorial teams permanently, but also to act quickly to secure a post in jeopardy.
