Greene’s College Oxford invites students to enrol at any time throughout the year, liberating students from a one-size-fits-all curriculum, as well as the fixed academic calendar. Our students are encouraged to identify clearly their academic goals and take strategic steps to achieve them. This means enrolling in the courses that support their objectives, and none of the classes that do not.
Students at Greene’s College Oxford have access to Greene’s Online, a custom-built online platform, where they can upload their work and review their assessments. Students receive live feedback and can track their progress independently in their own time. Study is in person or online, so geography will not limit academic development.
Learning can take place in our campus in Oxford, UK, or online from anywhere in the world. You can also make use of our campuses in Estoril and Lisbon, Portugal as online study spaces.
We teach through the tutorial method to encourage analytical and creative thinking. This approach to learning is defined by small group tuition, taught in the Socratic style, with an emphasis on independent study. Our students find they can retain more information when guided by their own curiosity – and it provides a more seamless transition from A levels to university life.
We work with only the very best academic tutors. Each one has achieved academic excellence in their field and every tutorial radiates this enthusiasm. Our tutors are selected for their ability to convey the required information in a meaningful manner and, with the help of our Personal Tutors, they inspire students to seek answers for themselves. With almost 55 years’ experience, Greene’s has the tools to empower students to succeed.
