What is an 'Oxbridge tutorial'?
The Oxbridge Tutorial is a unique way of teaching at the heart of Oxford and Cambridge. Tutorials are a historical form of teaching that has been used at Oxford since its inception in the 12th century. Tutorials focus on regular, personalised learning in small groups of between 1 to 3 students. Students at Oxford and Cambridge usually have one or two tutorials every week, which will normally last around an hour. During these Tutorials, the professor leading the Tutorial will give students feedback on prepared work in a particular area.
Benefits of Tutorials
·Tutorials encourage the exchange of ideas, help students develop skills to present and defend their opinions, ensure students can accept constructive criticism, and give students a space to listen to and benefit from alternative ideas and ways of thinking.
·Tutorials are rigorous and challenging but they not assessed, and therefore tutorials provide the perfect environment for you to explore your ideas and develop your interests.
·Tutorials are an unparalleled way to explore ideas and get new perspectives.
·Tutorials develop students’ abilities to think for themselves. This is an essential skill that students need in order to excel in the university admissions process, as well as in university itself, and is the reason why top employers are always looking to hire Oxbridge graduates.
·Tutorials offer an exceptional level of personalised attention from academic experts, which is not something students get to experience at other universities.
·Tutorials allow students to build bonds with their professors, which helps students when they need a reference or help on a task.
·Tutorials enable tutors to monitor students’ progress closely and regularly and, therefore, tutors can give feedback and additional support quickly and in a way that would best fit that particular student. This is why Oxford has some of the lowest dropout rates for universities in the world.
