In June of every year, OSAP offers a week-long faculty seminar. The seminar topic will be “Oxford University: 900 Years of Liberal Learning”. The seminar, which is interdisciplinary, will introduce participants to Oxford University and the associated colleges. The seminar is primarily meant for professors who might be interested in the Oxford method of education. A feature of the seminar will be the tutorial system, which is integral to education at Oxford and one of the main reasons it is ranked among the top 2 or 3 universities in the world. During the OSAP Faculty Seminar, distinguished Oxford scholars will offer lectures and lead discussions with ample opportunities for networking and information sharing.
Seminar participants will also explore Oxford, known as the “Medieval City of Dreaming Spires”, take a day-trip to see Stonehenge, Avebury and Salisbury, as well as visiting Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill.
The OSAP Faculty Seminar includes:
Participants are responsible for their own airfare and travel expenses to and from Oxford (very often U.S. colleges will pay this fee as part of faculty development).
Please email [email protected] or call the UK office on +44 1865 201132 for further details. An application form will be emailed or posted upon request.

"I would say OSAP is better because there is more integration with British students and a better safety net. Plus, the housing is better."
"I did not realize how much work I would actually be doing, but the tutors were not only friendly and helpful but really made me enjoy my work. I learned to really think for myself and could explore my own interests."
