It truly is an amazing experience, and for anyone hesitating to try the course- go for it! I myself am an introvert and was anxious to not make friends or fit in. I was wrong. Everyone was so kind and inclusive. It truly was one of the greatest experiences of my life. 10/10 recommend.
My experience at Oxford Royale Academy has been great in many ways. I really appreciated the classes, teachers and, especially, the opportunity to enjoy an international environment: nice people from all around the world.
I had an amazing time and I can’t wait to come back next year.
I’ve been in Oxford st.Catharine collage for 2 weeks engineering introducing course with Oxford Royal Academy. The course and organization was great and whole process of 2 weeks was smooth and perfect. But i believe courses and organizations are irrelevant, i believe the main purpose in such a program like this one is meeting people all around the world and making network on the way. Im happy that ORA has delivered that perfectly, it’s probably one of my most productive and self-improving 2 weeks of my life. Thanks for every person who make this happen.
It was definitely one of the best summers of my life and i enjoyed every single day of it. i got to make countless new friends from all around the world. i’ve experienced so many new things and i couldn’t be happier that i decided to go to oxford this summer. it was not only the lessons that made me fall in love with the program but also the activities, the staff and my peers. the staff was always there for us and we could entrust them with everything. everything has its ups and downs but i think that we as a course handled our downs together very well and had a lot more ups and awesome experiences together. i would recommend for everyone to go to oxford royale academy at least once in their life and experience the wonders it has to offer.
At my 2 weeks at Balliol College I met friends that I value more than friends I've met for longer periods of time. I learned more about medicine than I did in a full year of Biology at my IBDP school. This truly changed my life and my point of view on bring a Doctor.
