About Advanced Diploma in British Studies & European Studies 2015-16, Advanced Diploma - at Department for Continuing Education, University of Oxford

Our long-running and highly successful Undergraduate Advanced Diploma in British and European Studies course offers pre-Master's students a unique opportunity to prepare for graduate entry to leading British universities. 

From your very first day as a student on the Advanced Diploma in British and European Studies course you follow a full programme of academic study across a number of disciplines including the Humanities (History, Literature, Art History), Politics and International Relations and the Social Sciences, which you combine with classes in academic writing and advanced English language development. 

You will study in small seminar groups and will also receive individual weekly language tutorials. Additionally, in your second and third terms, you have the opportunity to focus on a subject of special interest to you on which you write a 5,000-word tutorial essay.
