Oxford Royale Summer Schools' UK summer courses take place in a number of glorious premises of UK education including the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, St Andrews University, Imperial College London and St Mary's School in Ascot and Uppingham School. We also provide programmes located in other prestigious locations around the world including Yale University on the North-East coast on the United States, and Bologna University on Italy, which is the oldest university in Europe.

Be taught by inspirational academics

Participants will be taught by qualified, knowledgeable and well-trained members of the Oxford Royale Summer Schools faculty, who are committed to passing on their passion for their discipline to their summer students. We encourage an open and intellectually inclusive classroom environment where each student feels confident enough to contribute their opinion, enabling all to learn from the experiences of their peers, make new friends, and absorb the knowledge their teacher has to offer.

Discover your future on leading campuses of the world

Although the primary focus of all Oxford Royale programmes is cultivating academic value and progress, we never forget that our students are on holiday! Students on our summer schools enjoy the full extra-curricular timetable for which Oxford Royale has become internationally famous, including dance workshops, tours of museums and key sites, themed parties and much more.

Summer courses to suit all academic interests and goals.

Our summer courses encompass a wide variety of engaging academic disciplines and subject options. Tomorrow’s young leaders may consider honing their understanding of the international political climate with our Global Leadership Programme, whilst those intending to become a doctor would undoubtedly benefit from our medical summer school.
