Courses: Students will take several tutorials with Oxford faculty. The tutorial involves weekly meetings between a member of the faculty and one or two students to discuss/study a specific academic topic. Students are assigned readings and usually an essay each week that must be prepared for the next meeting. The workload for the tutorial is heavy by U.S. standards. In addition to weekly tutorials, students are encouraged to attend university lectures. Students typically take two tutorials per term for a total of six tutorials per year. An Emory student spending a year at Oxford University would normally earn a full year's worth of credit at Emory. To see a list of potential courses offered at St. Edmund Hall, click here.
Emory College Study Abroad maintains a list of blanket approved courses. This list specifies how courses taken abroad will transfer back to Emory. PLEASE NOTE: Students may obtain additional approvals for courses that are not currently in the OISP Master Blanket Approval List.
Living Arrangements: Visiting students are housed along with other St. Edmund Hall undergraduates in one of several annexes close to the College. Typically each student will have a single study bedroom with a wash-basin and access to kitchens and bathrooms. All rooms have telephone and/or Ethernet connections. Living amongst British students, sharing meals and conversation, helps visiting students to settle quickly into Oxford life and to make friends. Self-service breakfast, lunch, and dinner are available in College in the Wolfson Dining Hall every day, and there is Hall dinner on Sundays. There are also a number of formal 'Guest Nights' when students can invite their friends and special menus are served. Please find additional information about housing here.
