Academics at University of Oxford, Lady Margaret Hall Partnership
Students take one primary (major) and one secondary (minor) tutorial every term. Students are not permitted to receive extra credit by taking two primary tutorials in one 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 12 U.S. semester credit hours for the Michaelmas (fall) term, 16 U.S. semester credit hours for the Early Start fall term (available in Fall 2019) 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.
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.
Early Start Lady Margaret Hall offers students the option to begin their studies early and earn additional credits with two sets of 8 tutorials or classes to study across the entire semester. The first set of 8 tutorials will begin in September, and will continue into Michaelmas term. The other set of 8 tutorials will begin at the start of Michaelmas, in October. Students will also have access to a welcome lecture, an introduction to studying in Oxford and walking tour of the city, led 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.
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.
