What do our staff say about us?

Benjamin Gibbons, Course Director at St Benet's Hall, Summer 2022

Many of the experiences I had working with Oxford Summer Courses have stayed with me, and some will stay with me forever... Soon after the bop ended, I was doing a round to make sure that everyone had begun going to bed. But I found all of the kids lying in the garden, looking at the stars. They were playing some music out of a tiny phone, and just singing along to it- kind of wistfully. That’s when it hit me, that what we’re doing here is something which will define our student’s teenage years. There were shooting stars above. It was pretty special.

The best thing about the people at Oxford Summer Courses is their genuine concern about and for each other and you! No matter what, you felt the head office (Oxford) staff was there to support you, to listen to you, to guide and advise you.

It is rare that a single company does important, innovative and interesting work. Not only does Oxford Summer Courses provide quality summer education programmes, but its courses are also designed and delivered in original and stimulating ways. Throughout my time with Oxford Summer Courses, I both enjoyed my work and took satisfaction in what I was doing.

Students come from far and wide for individual reasons but every single one of them left saying the same thing... ''I've had the best summer of my life and I've made some amazing friends''. Many started their Oxford Summer Courses journey unsure of what to expect, hoping to advance academically and experience University life. Seeing the students leave with that and far more is a strong highlight of mine.
