    There are lots of differences between the two unis in general too. Imperial doesn't do tutorials, Oxford has the college system, Oxford living costs are substantially less, Oxford is just generally richer and more able to offer facilities as a result.

    If you are international then I'm guessing the fees are different? Especially after college fees are added? You have looked into that i assume?

    ...both have tutorials ...
    Imperial does not have tutorials. Imperial has seminars which it calls Tutorials to try to pretend its Oxford.

    You just linked a thing labelled "Tutorials" which describes classes of 20+, nothing like the 1-4 of an Oxford tutorial, so... thanks for proving my point i guess?

    It clearly says the tutor will "divide the class into smaller groups of four or five who will work through a problem together as a group".

    Where did you get the figure for 20+?

    A tutor dividing a large group into smaller groups to discuss amongst themselves now = the same as a 2 to 1 tutorial does it? :laugh:

    It says there are 12 tutorial groups for the entire year group, which is 240+.

    To me, a group of 20 is very much a seminar, and calling it a 'tutorial' when a key rival has a very famous 'tutorial system' has clear motives.
