Current Opportunities

Who are we?

Oxford Summer Courses was founded on friendship and family. We were established in 2010 by two friends, Harry and Rob, who studied at Oxford University together and we’re now one of the fastest growing companies in the UK (80th fastest as ranked by the Financial Times).

Join a team that is driven by the desire to share the magic of our university experiences (and the cities where we had them) with the wider world. Although we’re not part of the University, Oxford is where we started and it still sets our standards: both our rigorous approach to education and our unswerving commitment to finding the best tutors and settings.

This summer, we’ll welcome motivated students aged 9-24 from around the world to Oxford, Cambridge, and London. Join us as we find more exceptional educational opportunities and connect them to knowledge-hungry students.

Purpose beyond profit

Our goal is to share the exciting and excellent academic adventure that Oxford and other elite universities have to offer with the world.

Alongside our summer courses, we run Universify Education, a charity committed to addressing educational inequality. Our work was recognised by the Financial Times Future 100 for making a positive impact on society. Universify offers free access courses to encourage applications to top universities from students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

We channel our passion into making a positive impact on our surroundings whether that be our students, the wider community or the environment.

Our people

Today, with a head office team of over 30 members representing 12 different nationalities, it is clear that the company’s inclusive ethos is informed by these roots. We are located across Oxford, Cambridge, London, India, and China, and together we build global partnerships and oversee preparation for the busy summer months when a team of over 200 tutors and 250 on-course delivery staff join us to deliver our courses.

Together we strive to be a strong, supportive community, brought together by a common goal which is, to share the best educational experiences as widely as possible.

Our dedication to wellbeing is demonstrated by our competitive benefits package for permanent team members.
