New tutor videos

Thursday 19 May 2022

New videos featuring Balliol tutors in five subjects have been published. Intended to give those considering applying to Oxford University an idea of what it would be like to study at Balliol for an undergraduate degree, in each video the tutors answer questions about preparing for tutorials, how they explore ideas with students and what they enjoy about conversations with them. The subjects covered are English, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics and Philosophy.
