Visiting Students - Geography


Formal teaching consists of one tutorial a week, mainly with other undergraduate students. Each tutorial lasts and hour, and will usually consist of a discussion of the written work you have produced that week, and of the reading you have been advised to do. In addition to tutorials, you will have the chance to attend lectures at the School of Geography and the Environment. Oxford also has a vast number of extra seminars, talks and workshops relevant to geography students, including those organised by the thriving research centres within the School of Geography and the Environment: Environmental Change Institute, Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, and Transport Studies Unit.
