Academic Life

Corpus Christi College is an energetic and focussed academic community of tutors, post-graduates and undergraduates, united by shared qualities of intellectual curiosity, academic independence and a genuine interest in their subject.

Corpus students are expected to demonstrate a high level of commitment and maturity in their approach to their academic work. In return, they are rewarded with stimulating intellectual discussion and the liberty of having their ideas explored and discussed with internationally-reputed scholars. The academic environment of the College dissolves the traditional teacher-student hierarchy, encouraging students to think ambitiously around problems and issues within their subject.

Students are supported in their studies by the extensive resources available to them at Corpus. The impressively-stocked College Library boasts a wide ranging collection catering to all needs. The original 16th Century bookstacks sit along side modern, spacious reading rooms, providing all members of College with a comfortable and stimulating working environment, day or night. All rooms are equipped with Ethernet connection points and IT facilities are plentiful, including a 24-hour computer suite.

Education extends past the College gates at Corpus. Generous travel grants are available to enable students to pursue their research interests in the wider world. Science students have access to top-quality laboratory facilities and research projects, working alongside internationally respected researchers.

Academic life at Corpus gives students the resources and independence to challenge and stretch themselves intellectually in a stimulating and co-operative environment.
