You'll live and learn in impressive and historic Oxford college settings, staying in rooms occupied by students during term time. Ensuite accommodation at Christ Church is available in limited capacity, which was the college of 13 British prime ministers (more than any other college at Oxford or Cambridge), and its Dining Hall was the inspiration for Hogwarts during the creation of the Harry Potter films.
Each year, we welcome like-minded students from 111 countries (and counting) to gather in Oxford to study the subjects they're most passionate about. You'll leave with a network of new friendships from all walks of life, all driven by academic success and the desire to take part in something extraordinary. End the course with a formal dinner and a graduation ceremony to commemorate your hard work and celebrate with new friends.
You’ll have time to explore the cobblestone streets of Oxford for yourself, in addition to a packed programme of social activities designed to reflect the Oxford student experience. 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. You'll also take day trips outside Oxford, giving you the chance to explore England further. We may take you to a castle in the English countryside, or we may go to London for the day.
Our summer schools in Oxford are held in historic University of Oxford accommodation, used by students during term time. Study with us this summer and get an authentic taste of the Oxford experience.
