Tutors from Other Colleges

One of the great virtues of studying at Oxford is the wealth of academic expertise in the University, spread around the various colleges. Although most first year teaching is done within the College, in the upper years it is standard for optional papers to be studied with experts from other colleges. Indeed it can even be an advantage being at a relatively small college, because this means that there will be more "teaching swaps" taking place, giving you an opportunity to request particular tutors (e.g. if you have been to their lectures, or read their books, and want to work with them specifically).

     To illustrate, here is a list of some of the tutors who have taught our Hertford students over the last few years, and the courses for which they have taught. Many of these are the main "Course Providers" or University lecturers on the courses concerned, hence specialists (indeed often world experts). We tend to have reciprocal relationships, so that our own tutors will be asked to teach other colleges' students in their main areas, and this is why we are able to maintain these beneficial arrangements.
