Policy and Guidance on Undergraduate Learning and Teaching

Oxford’s undergraduate courses are jointly delivered by colleges and departments/faculties, within a framework for delivery provided by the University. This Policy and Guidance sets out Education Committee’s overall strategy, expectations and responsibilities for undergraduate learning and teaching.

The Policy and Guidance includes policy requirements and guidance on: induction and study skills; the teaching and assessment framework, University teaching; the intersection of research and teaching; digital education; examinations and assessment (complementing the Policy and Guidance for examiners and others involved in University Examinations); and recommendations on college teaching.

This Policy and Guidance will be relevant to all involved in undergraduate learning and teaching in colleges and in departments/faculties, but will be of particular importance to:

  • Senior Tutors and relevant committees in colleges

  • Directors of Undergraduate Studies (or equivalent) and academic committees in departments/faculties

  • Divisional Undergraduate Studies Committees
