A Letter of Recommendation from our Tutors

At Oxford Summer Courses, one of our main goals is to provide a genuine Oxford undergraduate experience during the summer. Whether you study with us in Oxford, Cambridge, London or one of our international locations, students from around the world can discover our high-quality teaching, and every student achieves a certificate and a letter of recommendation from their tutor.

A letter of recommendation from a course in Oxford, Cambridge or London will confirm your attendance, your subject, and who your tutor was, including their academic profile. The letter itself is a signed document from the principal of Oxford Summer Courses and will feature a summary report from your tutor regarding your academic performance.

Our expert tutors can teach to students of all abilities, and provide a genuine Oxford experience. We follow the methods used at the University of Oxford, therefore students each week prepare for seminars, and if they’re aged 16-24, a tutorial each week as well. Our classes at Wycombe Abbey for those aged 10-12 years old are small and interactive, meaning our younger learners get lots of attention from their tutor.

Seminars and tutorials are stimulating and thought-provoking for students and tutors alike. The weekly discussions and dialogue feed into the learning that takes place throughout the course, and along the way, our students gain academic self-confidence and the ability to organise their ideas.

Our courses in Oxford provide access to tutors, all of whom have honed their teaching abilities as academics and researchers at a number of top institutions. Students also independently explore the world-renowned university city outside of their teaching.

The same structure is applied for our Cambridge summer students, who benefit from the guidance of Cambridge academics and supervisors who are leading authorities in the subject being studied. A recent addition to our portfolio of courses are our problem-based learning subjects in London.

You’ll be challenged to find a solution to a workplace/industry problem, with the guidance of specialist tutors and major company representatives. This variant teaching method partners academic study with real-world issues and project-led tasks, which allows students to develop skills beneficial to their future career.
