Academic Staff Contact Details 2012-13
Visiting and Socrates students are usually accommodated in courses from the two Freshman years, which take the form of lectures and small group tutorial classes. It is particularly the latter, in which members of staff can provide close individual attention, that visiting students tend to find most valuable.
Visiting students with an appropriate literary background are also eligible to take the compulsory sophister-level course, The Book.
Finally, a certain number of places are reserved for visiting students in Sophister Option courses. These places will only be allocated after students have been interviewed by the co-ordinator of Visiting Students. Admission is conditional on the student concerned having an appropriate background and level of study in the relevant material or period. Visiting students will not normally be accepted into more than one Sophister Option. Please note that because of pressure on places available, specific conditions apply to admission to courses in the School of English. Students who have not applied officially through International Admissions and Study Abroad, and who have not been approved by the School of English, cannot be accepted.
