As part of the Recognised Students programme, each student will have an Academic Advisor who will play a key role in introducing them to relevant opportunities within the School and Oxford.
Although the Advisor will not provide formal supervision, s/he will meet twice termly with the Student, and provide advice on relevant events and other research activities, they will also introduce the Student to relevant members of staff and other contacts.
The Academic Advisor will supply a formal letter of support as part of your application, once you have discussed the objectives of your visit with him/her.
Students are strongly encouraged to identify potential Academic Advisors in advance of submitting an application. Potential advisors can be found here.
