Graduate programmes are generally more individualised and are overseen by the student’s supervisor or course director at their department or faculty.
Graduate students also have a college affiliation, including a college adviser, who is a college fellow in their subject (for the college’s fellows in each subject, see Undergraduate Courses http://www.some.ox.ac.uk/studying-here/undergraduate-courses/) . For this reason, and to ensure that students benefit from a supportive academic environment, we usually only accept students for fields in which we have academics affiliated to the College.
You can find lots of information about our academics and their research on our People and Research pages.
