How we teach

Access to Oxford Summer Courses Foundations

Before you join us, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make the most out of your course. That’s why we have created Oxford Summer Courses Foundations - a self-paced online learning platform to develop your ability to learn with us throughout your education. The platform is included as part of your course fees and available to access whenever you need it.

Our highly trained, friendly team is here to look after you – and give you all the support, protection, and care you need to flourish. And, as they live on-site and there’s at least one member of staff to every five of you, there’s always someone nearby to talk to. You’ll enjoy a great mix of lessons, workshops, activities, and trips, and at the end of your course receive an end-of-course report so your parents can see how you got on.
