Academics at University of Oxford, Mansfield College Partnership
Due to the individualized nature of the Oxford tutorial system, Mansfield does not have a set course catalogue, but you can view some of the possibile tutorial subjects on the Mansfield College website.
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 36 U.S. semester credit hours for the academic year at Oxford, and 24 U.S. semester credit hours for the spring term (Applications for Spring will begin in January 2019 for the Spring 2020 term).
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.
