Learning

Outline

Market products and services, run promotions, make a profit. Anyone can do that, right? Sure they can, but to do it well – satisfying customers, meeting market demands and generating a stable income, you need to learn the tools of the trade. We’ll start you off, teaching the basics of markets and economies and how to run a successful business from the ground up. Then we’ll look at the role of marketing and the government for bigger picture context.

Teaching methodology

Learning in a small group (no more than 8 students and often fewer) means that you get quality time with your teacher and ask as many questions as you like! Through interactive learning, our teachers will guide you through new concepts and assign you practice tasks to build your knowledge and skills. You will also have an opportunity for group work, independent research, and homework assignments to be discussed in class. Small classes mean everyone gets to have their say, and students learn from debating with one another, as well as from their tutor. 

The Experience

You’ll have time to explore Oxford for yourself, as well as forging new friendships for the future, and there’s an action-packed programme of social activities, field trips and excursions to help bring your learning to life. We might even head to London for the day.

You’re not a tourist, so we won’t treat you like one. Instead we’ll help you uncover genuine local treasures and show you what life here is really like, from the inside.
