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.

ConferencesSeminarsWorkshops

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
  • Promotionadvertisingmarketing 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 year-long full-time programmes for Japanese
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,
the 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 students to larger
programmes of over 200 participants. During the summer
many residential International Programmes, including the
Oxford University Summer Programmes in English Literature
and in History, Politics, and Society, are held in
colleges throughout Oxford, in addition to those held at
the Rewley House 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
colleges, departments, and other institutions which 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.
