Research and academia

Christ Church, one of the largest colleges of Oxford University, is strongly committed to teaching and research. A large body of academics teach their students in tutorials, a system which enables undergraduates to work with experienced tutors in small groups.

The subjects offered at Christ Church cover the whole spectrum, including Arts, Social Sciences and Physical Sciences.

The tutors who work here strongly believe in the joint pursuit of teaching and research. In both Arts and Sciences, students will often be taught by or attend lectures by world leaders in their subject. They have the opportunity to hear about cutting-edge research; often a tutor will be working on a book or article and will try the ideas out on students. The process is not just one-way. Many tutors gain insights from teaching undergraduates and graduates alike.
