Interested in joining OSSC?

The Oxford Study Skills Centre is a resource for tutors and students alike. At OSSC we recognise that subject tutors have a limited amount of time in which they need to teach complex new ideas and help students meet course-specific learning objectives. Our goal is to deliver the essential writing and study skills that foster effective learning and help students to excel on their courses.

If you think the OSSC might be a good fit for your college, please contact us. We are very happy to meet with representatives from Oxford colleges to discuss our ethos, the types of sessions we can provide, and the benefits of participating in OSSC.

At the moment we primarily work with tutors and students from LMH and Pembroke, and we additionally work on an ad hoc basis with a number of other Oxford colleges.

We are always keen to work with new colleges, and we welcome inquiries from all Oxford colleges. There are two primary ways Oxford colleges can get involved with OSSC: a college can either send us students on an ad hoc basis, or a college can enter into an agreement to guarantee a certain number hours of sessions for its students. In either case, we ensure that the relevant party, for example the Senior Tutor or a college committee, has agreed to approve the expense.
