The status of Recognised Student is intended primarily for graduates of some years’ standing engaged in research elsewhere who wish to work in Oxford on a specific topic under the guidance of an academic familiar with their chosen area of study. Recognised Students will be able to meet with their appointed Academic Advisor to discuss their research, although they do not receive supervision as such.
Recognised Students do not follow any formal course of study and are not awarded a qualification. As well as meeting with their appointed Academic Advisor, Recognised Students with the Faculty of Philosophy are allowed to attend lectures and seminars at the Philosophy Centre, and to use the Philosophy and Theology Faculties Library, but they will not have a formal association with an Oxford college and are responsible for finding their own accommodation in Oxford.
Recognised Student status may be held for a maximum of three terms and these three terms can be spread over two academic years if necessary.
