Greene's Tutorial College is the oldest tutorial college in Oxford. Based at our 17th-century premises in the heart of the city, we offer full- or part-time study programmes in an extensive range of A level and GCSE subjects.

Our academic courses are flexible and are uniquely customised to ensure that students' individual needs are recognised and catered for. At the heart of Greene's method of teaching is the tutorial method; a system of tuition used for centuries by the U.K.'s elite universities. This approach to education increases students' confidence and independence while consolidating concepts and knowledge through challenging discussion and presentations in one-to-one and small group tutorials.

Greene's offers this high-quality, personalised form of education to students of any age and background in a university-style environment. We combine academic tutorials with regular and systematic continual assessment: using online reports to provide feedback for every tutorial, in addition to running a robust series of trial examinations throughout the year. Feedback is also given to our students in weekly meetings with their dedicated Personal Tutor, as well as in discussions with our Director of Studies. Such rigorous assessment and close attention to students' progress has a significant positive impact on both their academic attainment and personal development, which students say proves invaluable when they begin their university studies.

Students come to Greene's for a variety of reasons: as an alternative to school or sixth form college, for supplementary or revision tuition, or to prepare for university. We help our students meet their specific university entry requirements - whether this is by improving their A level grades, taking specific aptitude or entrance tests, or by gaining experience in another subject area - and help them to acquire the intellectual curiosity and independence of thought to take them through college, university, and beyond.

The opportunity to develop skills outside of academic study is a key part of student life at Greene's. All students at Greene's join our highly successful Leadership Programme consisting of weekly seminars and workshops presented by internal staff and external speakers that encourage students to think critically, to be creative and adaptable, to present themselves persuasively, and to make effective and informed personal, academic, and career choices.

We are very happy to offer academic assessments, taster tutorials, and college tours at any time of the year to help students understand first-hand the advantages of the tutorial method at Greene’s.
