Learning

Outline

Study Creative Industries with us and you’ll gain a deep understanding and appreciation of using creative arts in the real world. We’ll consider a range of viewpoints, from the impact of history, sociology and culture to how gender and ethnicity are considered on-screen and through the written word. Develop the best creative skills in the best environment to stimulate you creatively and academically.

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.

Wherever you choose, you’re sure to be captivated by the city’s atmospheric charm.
