About the Program
 Dive into your discipline with Oxford's tutorial system! You will be a Visiting Student at a specific college, and will focus your studies on your major and minor subjects.

About Oxford

Oxford is a bustling, modern city anchored by an air of academic tradition, with a diverse population and an urban edge. Oxford offers incredible architecture, from medieval to modern, cultural events, museums, concert halls, river sports in addition to pubs, restaurants and nightlife. 

Program Benefits
 
  • Study at one of the world's most prestigious universities.
  • Oxford is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of major research universities in the United Kingdom (similar to the Ivy League)
  • Classic tutorial-based courses allow you to delve deeply into your subject area
  • The one-on-one teaching format means that your syllabus is flexible based on your interests

Tutorial System

The hallmark of the University of Oxford academics is the tutorial system. The tutorial is typically a one-hour meeting between one or two students and the tutor. Tutorials usually meet once a week or every other week, and at the center of the tutorial is an essay on a topic the tutor previously assigned. The tutor will lead a discussion about the essay topic in an effort to provide new insights. At the end of the tutorial, the tutor will assign a new topic and may offer recommended reading. Tutorials are individually arranged, taking into account the subject to be studied and the tutor's area of expertise. They are similar to independent study courses, but Oxford students bear even more responsibility for conducting independent research and maintaining good academic progress. The University of Oxford organizes weekly lectures on myriad academic subjects, and all students at the University, regardless of college, are welcome to attend. Lectures are not usually mandatory except for some science subjects, but tutors often recommend them as good supplements to tutorials and research.

Scholarships

IFSA scholarships are primarily need-based and factor in any additional cost your study abroad program might have over home school tuition. The awards are $500 for summer programs, $1,500 for semester programs and $2,500 for full year programs. These scholarships may apply to any IFSA program, with the exception of our custom programs.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The IFSA-Butler Oxford program consists of a number of different colleges with different eligibility requirements. Prior to applying for Gustavus approval, you must double check that you meet your specific college's requirements on the IFSA-Butler website at: http://www.ifsa-butler.org/oxford-university.html. Click on the college you plan to attend to see the requirements. Also note that the application deadline for this program is earlier than the standard Gustavus Adolphus study away deadlines.

For Gustavus Adolphus students: IFSA uses semester credits. Each GAC unit = 4 semester credits. Thus, some IFSA courses, which are worth 3 semester credits each, are worth 0.75 GAC units. Be sure to discuss the irregular unit totals with your advisors as you select courses.
