As a former under-graduate at Oxford I can confirm the unique nature of studying for a degree in one of these historic colleges. There are three terms at Oxford each year; Michaelmas, Hilary and Trinity. All students have a tutor, every week during term time, you have 60-90 minutes with your tutor and one other student. This is a tutorial session where you discuss the essay / piece of work that you’ve both submitted. There’s also a programme of lectures (Mon-Fri) that you are invited to attend – but they are not compulsory. It’s all very ‘Brideshead’ if you remember the book by Evelyn Waugh. Check out my blog www.educated-traveller.com for a variety of articles on Oxford. I’d also strongly recommend a visit to the Bodleian Library – it is one of three copyright libraries in the UK, which means they automatically receive a copy of every book published. I’ve always wondered if there is a quality threshold here – or not?! The Bodleian Gift Shop is pretty good too. Thanks for a great article Sandra.

  1. Thanks so much for your personal perspective and insight Janet! Much appreciated. I only touched on my very short time at Christ Church College in the post but hope to write more about my magical week in Oxford. And yes, the Bodleian shop is great! They even had WW II map scarves! How wonderful that you studied in such a beautiful, historic place.
