"The academic support I had during my time in Oxford Summer Courses was incredible, my tutor Professor James Harris was by far the best tutor I’ve ever had"
"The subjects were surprisingly more than enjoyable and I absorbed a profusion of information. "
"The best part of my classes here would be the insight they’ve provided towards looking at history from different perspectives, and how important it is to properly gauge the usefulness of a source in your given essay."
