    DEPARTMENT FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION

    The Department for Continuing Education exists to make the University
    accessible to men and women in ways which complement the University's
    provision for its resident members. Each year the department mounts
    several hundred courses, either part-time or short full-time,
    covering most subjects taught within the University (except
    management and clinical medicine). Courses last anything from one day
    to ten weeks (full time), and between ten weeks and two years on a
    part-time basis. During recent sessions about 11,000 students have
    enrolled annually for the department's courses, the average length of
    study being twenty hours.

    Apart from a large number of individual members of the
    University who offer courses or give lectures, the Department for
    Continuing Education works in co-operation with an increasing number
    of other departments and faculties throughout the University. It
    welcomes expressions of interest from individuals and departments who
    wish to become involved in or to explore continuing education
    activities.

    The department's main provision is organised through three
    programme offices (see below), each of which is able to provide more
    detailed information on current and forthcoming activities. In
    addition, the Kellogg Residential Centre, when not being used for
    courses, can occasionally be made available for conferences and other
    residential meetings.

    The Public Programmes Office

    This office (Director: Mr R.T. Rowley) offers to the public a wide
    range of study opportunities in most academic disciplines through
    part-time day, evening, and short residential courses. Although most
    programmes have open entry and require no formal entry
    qualifications, an increasing number are award-bearing, at access,
    undergraduate, or postgraduate level, and many of these call for
    evidence of suitable entry requirements. During the summer the
    department offers one-week residential study opportunities, mainly
    for domestic students, through the Oxford University Summer School
    for Adults based at Rewley House, and the Oxford Experience, based at
    Christ Church. A range of study tours is also available to various
    parts of Europe and further afield. The department also runs the
    Rewley House Film Theatre on Sunday evenings during term. Individuals
    interested in offering courses or in contributing to other programmes
    are invited to contact the office.

    Details of all courses are publicised in annual prospectuses, or
    are available at any time from the department (telephone: (2)70312).

    The Continuing Professional Development Office

    Short and extended courses

    This office (Director: Mr P.G. Combey) draws on departments and
    faculties throughout the University to offer courses designed to meet
    the needs of individuals and groups drawn from industry, the
    professions, commerce, and academia. Courses vary from one- or two-
    day intensive updating courses based on the latest academic research,
    to longer courses enabling professionals to review advances in
    specialised fields, and acquire new areas of expertise and additional
    qualifications. Areas covered include engineering, law, information
    technology and computing, mathematics and statistics, education,
    biomedical science, and social studies. Contributors to courses
    include Oxford academics and research staff, and experts from other
    universities and organisations in the UK and abroad.

    Conferences/Seminars/Workshops

    The CPD Office is also able to offer a conference organisation and
    management service to colleagues within the University and other
    organisations. The CPD Office has specialist skills in running
    national and international meetings, and more than fifteen years'
    collective experience of organising and managing conferences,
    seminars, and training courses for up to 500 delegates. The Centre
    provides a `total conference package' which combines the best of
    personal service with the highest professional standards.

    Services offered include the following:

    • Conference planning and academic support
    • Budget preparation and account management
    • Venue sourcing, including residential accommodation, lecture
      theatres, hotels, and catering support
    • Organisation of exhibitions and displays, design and provision of
      publicity
    • Promotion/advertising/marketing support
    • Mailing; compilation of databases
    • Sourcing possible sponsorship
    • Organisation of social programmes, excursions and tours
    • Translation and interpretation services, technical and audio-
      visual support
    • Pre-registration management and on-site registration services,
      preparation of pre-prints, binders, badges
    • Post-conference reports and proceedings

    Further details are available from Oxford (2)70361.

    The International Programmes Office

    This office (Director: Dr A. Hawkins) offers a wide range of courses
    to undergraduates, graduates, and continuing education students from
    around the world. These courses include a year-long full-time
    programme for Japanese women graduates and diplomats from the
    Republic of China, Taiwan, as well as a large number of three- or
    four-week courses held during the summer for students from Europe and
    North America. Programmes are held in partnership with institutions
    such as the Smithsonian Institution, University of California at
    Berkeley, Duke University, the University of Virginia, and
    Northwestern University in America. International Programmes also
    works with the British Council, the European Commission, and the ODA,
    as well as offering courses in partnership with the Bodleian Library
    and many other colleges and departments within the University.
    Subjects covered in these courses include topics from law and
    industrial relations through to archaeology, art history, and the
    physical and biological sciences. Tutors are drawn from Oxford
    academic and research staff, and expertise is also recruited from
    outside the University. Programmes vary in size from small groups of
    twenty-five students to larger programmes of over 200 participants.
    During the summer many residential International Programmes,
    including the Oxford International Summer School in English
    Literature, are held in colleges throughout Oxford, in addition to
    courses held at the Kellogg Residential Centre. Over the next few
    years the range of courses offered by the International Programmes
    Office will be expanded, drawing in more students from Europe, Japan,
    other countries in the Far East, and from elsewhere around the world.

    As the work of the International Programmes Office expands,
    approaches would be welcomed from those who have accommodation from
    which they would like to generate further income or from individuals
    with suitable qualifications interested in teaching on international
    programmes. Telephone: (2)70456.

    Enquiries should be directed to the numbers given above.
    General enquiries may be directed to the Director of the Department
    (Dr G.P. Thomas), at the Department for Continuing Education, 1
    Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JA.
