St John’s College, Oxford Oxford

Located within a 5 minute walk of Oxford centre, St John’s is the ideal hub for your time studying and exploring with Oxford Summer Courses.


Established in 1555, it is the wealthiest college of Oxford University and has had some well known people study here in it’s time, including British Prime Minister Tony Blair in 1972, who studied Jurisprudence (legal theory) for 3 years. The college boasts historic buildings, beautiful gardens and modern facilities, including a common room with quiz machines, a jukebox, TV & DVD’s, board games, and a vast art collection to keep you entertained in your free time. The well known Ashmolean Museum of art and archaeology can also be found almost directly opposite the college, where objects dating from 500,000BC to present day can be found. St Johns caters for our 16-17 year old students who can be accommodated in private single rooms with shared bathroom facilities.


Although the on-site facilities are enough keep you busy, the college is situated just a short walk from Oxford University Parks, where planned activities and sports may take place on some of your evenings.
