How to apply as a Registered Visiting Student 2019-2020

St Catherine's College welcomes applications from students who will have completed at least two years of college or university who wish to study in Oxford as non-degree students.  Michaelmas term runs from early October to mid-December;  Hilary term from early January to mid-March;  and Trinity term from mid-April to late June.  Applications are accepted for one, two or three terms although maximum benefit from study at St Catherine's clearly accrues to those able to come for the whole year.  Successful applicants will receive detailed instructions about dates of arrival in Oxford.

Applicants should include in their application their full name,  address, date of birth, and the number of years they have attended at university/college.  US candidates should include their GPA rating (it is unlikely that a place will be offered to anyone with a current GPA less than 3.7) and,  where appropriate,  SAT/ACT scores.  Candidates from other countries should send an equivalent evaluation.  Candidates should also include their current college transcript,  two letters of acadmic recommendation,  two samples of written work (not more than 20 pages) and a statement,  not exceeding 200 words,  of their academic goals and reasons for wishing to study at St Catherine's College, Oxford,  a passport photo and a copy of the applicant's passport details page.   In addition,  applicants should fill in a tutorial preference form on which they can indicate their proposed tutorial choices of study.

We will not make an offer until we have sufficient proof of your English language proficiency.
