Eligibility Requirements: Students must meet the regular Emory College Study Abroad eligibility requirements in addition to the following program-specific requirements:

Minimum GPA 3.7 (higher GPA preferred)
Commitment to specialize in only 1 or 2 subjects

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. 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. A list of potential courses offered at St. Peter's College can be viewed here.
