TANISHKA SURI Law Student from United Arab Emirates
Oxford Summer Courses is one of the best courses I’ve been on to meet new people, I made friends during my time that I will never forget. The course was an amazing experience, it made me step out of my comfort zone and try new activities such as punting. Punting was a great icebreaker, it allowed us to see other people’s new talents and have lots of fun! I would definitely come back on this course, I met so many new people and have made lots of memories that I will never forget. I truly loved it and will come back for longer next time
JADE FERRE Medicine Student from Switzerland
I learned so much on the medicine course. Every morning we had three hours of lessons in which we discussed different subjects on different days and each one was even better than the last. Every afternoon we did different activities, went to museums and sometimes had free time. The free time was great, it allowed me to meet so many amazing people that I will never forget. Moreover, Oxford Summer Courses is great because it welcomes people from all over the world. For example, I met a girl who has a different religion to me and it is astonishing to learn the difference between my religion and hers. Overall, Oxford Summer Courses was a new big adventure for me and made me realise how much I liked studying medicine and socialising with people all over the world.

My time here at Oxford Summer Courses has been one unlike any other. The rich surrounding atmosphere, inspired by the beautiful and historic buildings of Oxford as well as the amazing staff, allowed for a captivating academic journey. Tutors and students alike engaged in intensive yet fun lessons and activities, forming a unique and individualized classroom environment. Alongside the classroom, getting to meet some of the brightest minds from around the world gave me the chance to make friends and form bonds. This made my two weeks not only academically stimulating, but extremely enjoyable and worthwhile.
