Teaching Methodology (Ages 13-15)

Engage in small group learning environments (with no more than 8 students and often fewer), fostering rich interactions with instructors. Through this personalised approach, our educators navigate participants through fundamental biological concepts, assigning practical tasks, and fostering collaborative activities such as group work, independent research, and guided discussions. These intimate class settings encourage active participation, enabling students to explore diverse biological perspectives through lively debates with peers and tutors.

Teaching Methodology (Ages 16-17 & 18-24)

Embrace the Oxford approach with tutorial-style teaching, led by expert tutors who nurture self-directed learning and critical thinking in interactive seminars within small groups (limited to 8 students). Throughout the summer programme, participants undertake two pieces of independent work, meticulously evaluated in personalised 1:1 or 2:1 tutorials. These sessions serve as invaluable forums for feedback and discourse, fostering a deeper understanding of biological principles within a supportive learning environment. Upon completion, participants are awarded a certificate and a personalised letter of recommendation from their tutor.

"The course at Oxford Summer Courses gave me an insight into how to make arguments in support of or against certain positions, which is useful in Law. The tutor assisted me in how to structure these arguments during my summer school."
