Past Review Phenomenal

About

Oxford's international profile rivals that of any university in the world, highlighted by the breadth and depth of its research collaborations and a truly global student body and academic staff.  As a visiting student at Blackfriars Hall in the University of Oxford you will be able to follow accredited studies for one year in Theology, Philosophy, Psychology, English Literature, Classics (in translation), and British History. You will enjoy access to the academic and wider social and recreational facilities of the University of Oxford, as well as those we offer in the Hall.

We also offer classes in Latin, New Testament Greek, and Hebrew.

Your teaching will be provided primarily through weekly tutorials, usually on a one-to-one basis, where you discuss with the tutor an essay you have prepared. The normal expectation is that OSP students receive two tutorials a week. Some students prefer to take one tutorial per week, or three every two weeks, but if you are on the OSP programme this must be negotiated with your home university as well as with the Director of Visiting Students at Blackfriars. As well as lectures at Blackfriars you will be able to attend an extremely wide range of lectures and seminars in the University.
