Course catalogue and selection

Like our full-degree course undergraduates, most Visiting Students will study one subject at their time at St Anne’s.  Depth of study is a particular strength of the Oxford system, so we encourage students to focus on one subject in most instances.  However, if you are interested in studying two subjects during your time here at St Anne’s or in studying a course that is not listed below, please email for advice, prior to completing your application form.


Social Sciences


The following subjects can be studied jointly –

  • Classics and English
  • Classics and Modern languages
  • Classics and Oriental Studies
  • Computer Science and Philosophy
  • English and Modern Languages
  • History and Economics
  • History and Modern Languages
  • History and Politics
  • Mathematics and Computer Science
  • Mathematics and Philosophy
  • Philosophy and Modern Languages
  • Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) – visiting students can study all 3 subjects if they attend for the academic year or the extended academic year. If attending for a term it is only possible to study 2 of the 3 subjects.  

In order to study joint subjects a visiting student needs to be studying both subjects at their home institution already. It is possible you may only be offered a place to study one subject, rather than both, if you are not deemed to have sufficient background in both subjects.

It is sometimes possible to study other subjects jointly, please email with your request.
