§ 4. Disciplinary Regulations, &c. of the Delegates of Non-Collegiate Students.

1. The usual residence of students is not less than eight weeks in each of the Michaelmas and Hilary Terms, and eight in the Easter and Trinity Terms taken together; this residence must be within full Term. If any student desires to reside a shorter period in any Term; or to keep any part of his residence before or after full Term; or to be entirely non-resident for a Term; or to reside during any vacation; he must previously obtain the permission of the Delegates.

2. Each student, as soon as possible after his arrival in Oxford in each Term, is required to call on the Censor at his office (between the hours of io A.m. and noon) to report himself, and to be directed by his Tutor as'to his studies. He is also required on that occasion to enter his address (in Oxford and at home) in a book kept for the purpose.

3. The students must also call at the end of each Term in order to obtain leave to go down.

4. No student is allowed to leave Oxford for the day without the consent of the Censor or his Tutor.

5. No student is to engage lodgings without the sanction of the Delegates.

6. Any student who desires to reside and keep Terms in an unlicensed house must obtain leave to do so by applying to the Lodging-house Delegacy through the Censor.

7. Any student who is out of his lodgings after 10 P.m. is reported to the Delegates by the lodging-house keepers. As a general rule, the students are expected to be in their lodgings by 11 P.m.: if out after midnight, without the permission of the Censor, they will incur a fine of Ten Shillings. No student is allowed to leave his lodgings after 10 P.m. or before 6 A.m., unless he has previously obtained permission from the Censor.

8. Any student who wishes to offer himself for any University Examination must apply to the Censor for the necessary Form, and must not give in his name to the Proctor without the Censor's approval: nor may he withdraw his name from the Proctor's list without first consulting the Censor.

9. Every student must enter his name for Responsions before the end of his second Term, and must pass Responsions by the end of his first year of standing. Every student, unless he be a Candidate for Honours in Moderations, must enter his name for Moderations within a year after passing Responsions, and must in any case pass Moderations within eighteen months after passing Responsions.

Every student is required to pass all the examinations for the degree of B.A. within five years from Matriculation.

Those who fail to comply with these requirements cannot keep their names on the books without special leave from the Delegates.

10. At the beginning of Term, the dues (see p. 242) must be paid through the Clerk to the Delegacy; the dues for the Michaelmas quarter must be paid before the end of the Trinity Term preceding. Every student, who resides in a licensed house, has also to pay through the Delegacy a terminal fee of 3j. 6d. to the University for the sanitary inspection, &c. provided under the Lodging-house Delegacy.

11. Each student on his Matriculation is placed under the care of one of the Tutors, to whose instruction and advice he is bound to attend.

Three kinds of teaching are open to students:—(i) the teaching of Professors and other Public Lecturers, (2) the teaching of College Tutors and Lecturers, (3) the teaching of private members of the University. Each of these kinds of teaching, in most branches of academical study, helps and supplements the others.

§ 1. Of Professors and Public Lecturers.

Until comparatively recent times the operations of the University as a teaching body were confined within rather narrow limits. The Professors were few in number, their teaching usually consisted of a series of set discourses, and they seldom came into any close personal contact with their pupils. But within the last thirty years not only has a considerable number of new Professorships been founded, but the system of professorial teaching has been largely altered. Almost the whole field of academical study is now covered by public lectures, and the set discourses of former times have been to a great extent either superseded or supplemented by informal teaching, closely adapted to the wants of individual students.

The subjects of these lectures, which of course vary more or less from Term to Term, are announced in the University Gazette. Those who wish to attend them are usually required to signify their wish to the Professor beforehand; in many cases a small fee is charged for the first two courses; in some cases the consent of the College authorities is required; and in some cases also a student is not allowed to attend until he has attained a certain academical standing. Each of these conditions is mentioned in the Professor's terminal announcement.

The following list of Professors and Lecturers shows the help which a student may derive from the public teaching of the University in reading for the Examinations for Honours in Arts.
