Our courses include lectures by academics associated with the University of Oxford on the subject areas/themes of students’ choice. The objective of the lectures is to introduce students to the latest debates, discussions and innovations in their field of study. These lectures also include a Question and Answer session that encourages students to discuss and deliberate on the issues discussed in lectures.
The lecturers are encouraged to use a variety of study aids which includes hand-outs, powerpoint slides as well as audio & video materials. Majority of the lectures are in presentation form, in other cases seminar style is opted. Seminars require students to read academic papers, which are then discussed by students and moderated by the lecturer.
Each course prescribes some key seminal texts and excerpts from these are provided to the students as lecture hand-outs. All course materials required to complete the summer courses are provided by the Oxford Institute. A recommended reading list is provided and students can purchase these books to pursue further research.
