Tutorials are an unfamiliar concept for most people starting a degree at Oxford. This form of personalised learning is one of the unique aspects of doing a degree here.
What is a tutorial?
A tutorial is an hourly weekly meeting with a tutor and usually one or two other students. At the meeting, you'll discuss ideas, concepts and debates relating to the reading you were set for the week. You'll be asked to prepare a piece of independent written work ahead of the tutorial.
What is a tutor and what are their responsibilities?
For every course offered by Christ Church, there's an academic who has expertise in your area of study and is producing cutting-edge research in their field. These researchers, who range from Junior Research Fellows to Professors, will be your tutors.
