Learning

Outline

How do all the creatures and plants that surround us adapt to their environments? How do they impact us? What would happen if they were no longer there? Answer all the questions that inspire your curiosity and more on our insightful Biology course. From genetic mutation and negative selection to the dynamics of predation, we cover all areas for a comprehensive, immersive learning experience that mixes solo research, group interaction and case study analysis for the greatest results and enjoyment.

Teaching methodology

Learn the Oxford way with tutorial style teaching. Your expert tutor will foster self-directed learning and critical thinking through interactive seminars in small groups (no bigger than 8). During your course, you will complete two pieces of independent work (essays or problem sheets), which your tutor will then evaluate in either a 1:1 or 2:1 tutorial. Tutorials will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your work and feedback with your tutor and learn new perspectives from your classmates. On completion of the course, you’ll receive a certificate and letter of recommendation from your tutor.

The Experience

You’ll have time to explore Oxford for yourself, as well as forging new friendships for the future, and there’s an action-packed programme of social activities, field trips and excursions to help bring your learning to life. We might even head to London for the day.

You’re not a tourist, so we won’t treat you like one. Instead we’ll help you uncover genuine local treasures and show you what life here is really like, from the inside.
