We invite Oxford University lecturers and faculty members to deliver specific lectures related to EMI. Our course participants enjoy being students for a while and participating in a lecture given by a teacher from Oxford University.
The lectures are about specific subjects such as Business, Engineering, Physics, Materials,Technology in the Lecture Room, Deep Learning and so on. Our lecturers discuss the way they teach here in Oxford, how they manage in an international classroom and share their experiences of university teaching and learning.
