Oxford Summer Course: 2 or 4 Weeks?

2 Weeks or 4 Weeks

At Oxford University, they don’t really do calendar dates like everyone else. Today isn’t the 26th of November to most Oxford students, instead it is Tuesday of 7th Week. The entire year is divided into terms, and the terms divided into weeks, ranging from -4th through to 12th or 13th week in some cases. Term itself runs from 1st week through to 8th week.

Oxford Summer Courses is not quite like this! (phew…) We deliberately limit the courses to 2 weeks or 4 weeks (perhaps doing 2 different courses!) to allow you to get a great taste of Oxford (not only academically, but also culturally and socially) without it being too tiring. This may be a summer course, but it is also your summer holiday!

We will make sure those weeks are packed full of stuff, bursting at the seams with fabulous trips, restaurants, talks, visits, sports, debating, tutorials, seminars, reading, studying, sightseeing, punting, and more.

Doing 2 weeks with us allows you to study one subject in one-on-one tutorials with an Oxford Tutor and to get a phenomenal depth of understanding of it. If you choose to do 4 weeks you might decide to do a different subject in your second course.
