Pastoral and academic support

OCMS students conduct their own research under the guidance of three supervisors – a main academic supervisor, a second academic supervisor, and an OCMS House Tutor who provides personal support and assistance. The academic supervisors help develop and guide the research and comment on chapter drafts during the MPhil and Ph.D stages.

Mission Studies often crosses academic boundaries and many OCMS students are pursuing inter-disciplinary research in diverse contexts around the world. OCMS strives to match supervisors’ expertise as precisely as possible to each student’s individual project. In order to do this, we seek out scholars from universities across the UK and overseas to supervise projects, and many of our supervisors are leading academics and acknowledged authorities in their field. Interaction with this international network of supervisors is another distinctive feature of student experience at OCMS.
