Study Engineering Oxford Summer Courses

Engineers take the abstract laws of maths and physics and use them to solve problems in the real world. Engineers across the world are using their skills to solve all sorts of problems; the one thing the people working on the international space station have in common with the team who built the Millennium bridge is the ability to take a problem, understand the scientific principles at play, and then use those principles to get to a solution.

Courses

At Oxford Summer Courses we are committed to the best academic experiences and to the personalised learning that has made Oxford a global academic force. So while all of our tutors are at the top of their fields depending on your age you'll be taught in slightly different ways. We use small group seminars to ensure that you get greater attention than you could elsewhere. On top of that if you're aged 16-17 or 18-24 then you'll receive weekly tutorials from leading academics mirroring the teaching method that makes Oxford a world-renowned university. Choose your Engineering course below:

18-24 years

  • 2 and 4 weeks courses available
  • Oxford/Cambridge University accommodation
  • Tutorials & group seminars
  • Breakfast & Dinner included
Engineering

Our Engineering programme for 18-24 year olds is ordinarily taught through four seminars and one one-hour tutorial per week. All readings and seminar questions will be circulated prior to the seminars.

The course allows students the opportunity to explore the underlying principles behind the subject. Students will examine the strengths and limitations of a range of engineering problems including looking in detail at sustainable energy. Students will explore the newer and older sustainable technology methods and draw on physics and mathematics to help understand and develop technical solutions to sustainable energy.

Engineering

Our course for 16-17 year olds allows students to look at some of the arithmetic behind a number of the proposed solutions to the UK's energy problems and assess their feasibility.

A balance of group seminars and one-to-one tutorials will give you the opportunity to look at the underlying principles behind the subject and draw on physics and mathematics to help understand and develop solutions.

Testimonials

Nissrin Nabil - Student from 2015

My two weeks at Oxford Summer Courses were like a dream. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I loved meeting new people from all around the world, you get to learn about different cultures and you learn to accept others the way they are. It has given me a new perspective on things and i’ve learned that a person should never limit himself to the society he/she lives in. Oxford too is an amazing city. You go back in time just by looking at the walls, towers, colleges and basically everything around you. The environment is fantastic. On top of this we had tours almost everyday and we had the chance to go to awesome places like Windsor Castle, Blenheim Palace, Museums and Bodleian Library where we saw books that date back to 16th and 17th century.
