The oldest university in Singapore meets the oldest university in the English-speaking world. One-week intensive summer courses are taught by Oxford tutors, held at Singapore's top university.
Tutorials and classes are led by expert Oxford tutors, delivered at the National University of Singapore. Learn new concepts in challenging settings, with 27 hours of intensive academic time through tutorials, as well as small class sessions (of 15 students or less). You'll take part in academic workshops that will build your transferable skills, such as goal setting, time management, and presentation techniques.
Our short academic courses are designed to challenge academically gifted students and encourage independent thinking through the Oxford tutorial method. You'll have 1:1 or 2:1 guided essay writing time with Oxford tutors, who will expand your thinking and provide feedback on your conclusions. We’ve created a programme that balances intensive academic learning with an introduction to the English educational system and British culture, including evening activities such as debate nights in the style of the Oxford Union.
Learning in a small group as well as tutorials means that you get quality time with an Oxford tutor, and the chance to ask all your most pressing questions. Through interactive learning, our tutors will guide you through new concepts and assign you practise tasks to build your knowledge and skills. You'll also have an opportunity to expand your knowledge through group work with classmates and independent research.
Courses include one afternoon day trip which is tied to your subject of choice, designed to challenge your thinking about your chosen subject outside the classroom. The National University of Singapore is located in East Singapore, known for its top academic institutions, commercial sector, and restaurants. Possible excursions and nighttime activities include trips to Marina Bay, hawker markets, and more.
You'll have the opportunity to stay at the National University of Singapore student housing for the duration of their course for your convenience. The course also offers a non-residential option for local students. At the National University of Singapore accommodation, our pastoral staff and group leaders will be nearby to make sure you’re safe, comfortable and happy – and can help with anything from finding your teaching room to working out where the laundry gets done. On the first day, our staff provide students with an orientation to help you settle in and work out the basics of student life.
