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.
OSSC also works with colleges to train postgraduate ‘mentors’ or ‘buddies’ in the study skills methodologies used at OSSC. This is a valuable way for colleges to build up their on-site provision of study skills, and it also provides graduate tutors with the opportunity to expand their skill set and gain mentoring and tutoring experience.
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.
During our 2018-2019 pilot year, we have primarily worked with tutors and students from LMH and Pembroke as well as with a number of other Oxford colleges on an ad hoc basis.
We are always keen to work with new colleges, and we welcome inquiries from all Oxford colleges. Please contact us to request a price list for the 2019-2020 academic year.
You may also wish to direct your students to our growing library of online resources and recommended books.
