COVID Peace of Mind Policy


With the outbreak of COVID-19, we understand that you may have some concerns or queries about the current situation, and how it may affect your time with Oxford Summer Courses. Our promise to you: We will never keep any payment you make to us without providing you with a course.

Oxford Summer Courses is the only Oxford-based summer school to run COVID-safe courses in 2020. Join us again in summer 2021 for a safe, fun, and transformative learning experience.


A full, immediate refund if we cancel your course

Free postponement to a later course date in 2021 if COVID-19* prevents you from attending 

Free deferral to summer 2022 if COVID-19* prevents you from attending 

Free access to our online preparation programme Oxford Summer Courses Foundations once we receive your full fees 

Free transfer to learning through our digital partner Melio (fair warning of 40 days’ notice before your original course start date required)


We follow all government-mandated COVID-19 control measures

Tested Covid protocols to protect your well-being and enjoyment on the course
