Academics at University of Oxford, St. Anne’s College 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, 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.
Spring two-term students can apply to study the following subjects: English, History, Classics, Music, Politics, Philosophy and Economics. Economics students should note that their options will be more limited.
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.
St. Anne's College’s Pre-Medical Program is distinguished by its focus on biochemistry and emphasis on independent study. At its heart lies the philosophy that human diseases and clinical treatments can be fully understood only with a detailed knowledge of cellular molecular process. Biochemistry tutors from St. Anne’s College lead the program in collaboration with their colleagues from chemistry, physiology, pharmacology and experimental psychology. Courses are taught through a combination of tutorials and lectures given by experts from St. Anne’s College and the entire Oxford system.
St. Anne's College Pre-Medical Program is highly competitive and a minimum GPA of 3.7 is required. Students will earn 12 U.S. semester credits for each of the three Oxford terms. The September pre-session courses will be worth 2 U.S. semester credits each for a total of 4 additional credits.
The program is available during the following terms:
- Fall semester (September-December), designed to help participants maximize their time abroad in a shorter timeframe. The semester combines the Oxford Michaelmas Term with a required September pre-session.
- Academic year (October-June), the traditional academic year at Oxford that combines all three Oxford terms: Michaelmas, Hilary and Trinity.
- Extended academic year (September-June). A more advanced course of study that includes all three terms at Oxford plus the September pre-session. This is a particularly popular option for students who plan to apply to MD-PhD programs.
The program encompasses five broad themes:
- Structure and Function of Macromolecules
- Bioenergetics and Metabolism
- Molecular Biology and Genetics
- Cell Biology
- Physiology and Human Disease
