Campion Hall, a house owned and run by the Society of Jesus. It is part of the University of Oxford, which consists of thirty-eight colleges and six permanent private halls. Campion Hall is a Permanent Private Hall whose members enjoy exactly the same privileges as those of the other colleges.
A Religious Community
Campion Hall was designed expressly to house people studying at Oxford and is situated in the centre of the city. At the moment we are a community of about thirty-five men, two thirds of whose members are Jesuits. We welcome as students, members of other religious congregations as well as diocesan priests and seminarians.
Please note that laymen are only admitted occasionally and for special reasons.
Campion Hall, like the other colleges and halls, can admit students into the University for almost all undergraduate subjects. For studies beyond this level (principally the M.St., M.Phil., M.Sc., M.Litt. and D.Phil.) the candidate must be accepted by the faculty in which he wishes to study, as well as by a College or Hall.
A very wide range of subjects can be studied at Oxford. These include Theology, Philosophy, History, Geography, English Language and Literature, Classical Studies, Archaeology, Anthropology and other Social Sciences, Law, Modern Languages, Oriental Studies, Latin American Studies, Mathematics and the Natural Sciences, Music and Medicine. There are excellent libraries throughout the University and Campion's own collection is particularly strong in Theology and Philosophy.
|Undergraduate studies have the special advantage of the tutorial system, the traditional teaching method of both Oxford and Cambridge. By this, system the student sees his teacher (tutor) alone for one hour each week to discuss and evaluate his work of the previous week. Lectures are secondary and optional.|
The system places great emphasis on training the student to think for himself, to adopt a critical approach to his subject, and to express his knowledge and judgements both precisely and fluently.
For graduate studies too, teaching is on a one-to-one basis. Thus each student meets regularly with his supervisor who is appointed by the relevant faculty in order to discuss his work.
