40 nationalities registered for ORA 2014

One of the key elements of an Oxford Royale Summer Schools summer programme is the chance to meet new people from all around the world.  Students from 99 nations registered for our 2013 courses, and summer 2014 looks set to be even more global in nature.  Indeed, students from 40 nations have already signed up for next summer – 11 more nations than this point last year.
Our interactive map available by clicking here (or on the image below) shows the nationalities of our 2014 students so far.

Of course, the perspectives of an individual student are influenced by many more factors than just their nationality; however, we find that the variety of cultures represented in class adds another dimension to discussions and debates, whether on our English language courses, our University Preparation programmes, our General Academic courses or our Media programmes.
Many of the friendships that students make at Oxford Royale Summer Schools last way beyond the end of a particular summer season.  There are countless stories of students flying to the hometowns of their ORA friends after the summer to re-live the memories – from Greece to the Czech Republic, Australia to the United States, Sweden to Germany and many more.
The social aspect of ORA can best be summed up by our students.  Aritra from India writes: “The courses I chose, Politics and International Relations with British History, were excellent, especially with the teachers showing a great passion for the subject. The accommodation was good, so was the food…but the best thing was to meet people from many different places…my friends happened to be French, Belgian, Czech, Greek and Romanian!”
With students from so many nations already signed up for next summer, ORA 2014 is set to be one of the most international summer education events on the planet.  If you would like to take part, we’re sure we have a course to suit your needs and interests, and our friendly Registrations Team would be happy to discuss your requirements should you wish to do so.  You can call us on +44 (0) 1865 954 800, or email us on [email protected].
