The tutorial program is designed for Sixth Formers to allow serious students to do advanced study in a particular area not currently available in the school's curriculum. Since students are expected to do considerable independent study, they should not contemplate taking tutorials unless they already have fairly strong backgrounds in the particular fields.
The tutorial program assumes that students will push and extend themselves to a degree not usually invited by regular courses. The quality of scholarship is expected to be high, and the amount of work to be produced is expected to exceed that of a regular course.
Unless there are special circumstances, all tutorials are worth one credit. If a tutorial is taken for half-credit, it is taken in addition to the normal five-credit roster of courses.
Tutorial applications are due at the same time as regular course sign-ups. Each tutorial is subject to the review and approval of the Studies Committee.
