Academics at University of Oxford, Lady Margaret Hall Partnership
Because of the individualized nature of the tutorial system, colleges at Oxford do not have an online course catalog. However, LMH has a website with a list of possible subjects.
Academic Year and Spring Students take one primary (major) and one secondary (minor) tutorial every term. Fall Students arrive early and take two primary (major) tutorials. Academic year students have the option to also arrive early and take two primary tutorials in the fall term. Butler University will award students 8 U.S. semester credit hours for each primary tutorial and 4 U.S. semester credit hours for each secondary tutorial. No credit will be awarded for additional work undertaken even if the Oxford College approves it.
Butler University will issue 16 U.S. semester credit hours for the Early Start fall term, 24 U.S. semester credit hours for the Hilary/Trinity (spring) two-term program and 36 U.S. semester credit hours for the academic year at Oxford, and 40 U.S. semester credit hours for the early start academic year
Science and math students may be required to attend University lectures or to take one or more short tutorials. Regardless of the number of tutorials or lectures required, science students will earn the same number of credits (12 U.S. semester credit hours per term) as other students.
Please review all your syllabi and course materials when you are registering for classes (both pre-arrival and on-site). Certain classes may have a one-off lab or field trip fee that is disclosed in the syllabus or first meeting of class. You will be responsible for these fees, whether they are billed and paid by IFSA or billed to you.
The other tutorial will begin at the start of Michaelmas, in October. Please note that STEM courses are not available for early start. STEM students who wish to only take courses in the sciences should consider Academic year or Spring only. STEM courses are available as secondary tutorials for early start in the fall. Students will also have access to a welcome lecture, an introduction to studying in Oxford and walking tour of the city, let by the Director of Visiting Students, critical thinking seminars. There will also be cultural excursions to places like Oxford's premier museum and gallery, the Ashmolean Museum, Benjamin Disraeli's home Hughenden Manor (which played a vital role in this relationship with Queen Victoria), and Rousham House and Historic Garden which marks the start of the English Landscape garden.
