Guide for Perplexed Students

Oxford is a great place to study, but it can also be a rather confusing place for those new to it, and there are often things that new students want to know that appear in no official handbook and seem not to be explained fully by tutors.

Often the quickest way to find these things out is by chatting with someone doing the same subject in the year above, but on the off-chance that you may find it useful to have some of these things explained in a single document, Dr Eric Eve (Official Fellow and Tutor of Theology), has prepared some hints and suggestions based on his own experience of reading for the Oxford B.A. in Theology in the hope that some of them may prove of some value, whatever subject you are reading. The various sections can be found below (please note some of the 'official' information may be out of date so please use this guide in conjunction with the up-to-date Student Handbook)
