10 Reasons to Join Our Global Leadership Programme This Summer!
1. Gain skills you won’t learn elsewhere
The programme explores every skill that you might need for future leadership, from public speaking to awareness of global affairs – not a combination you usually get all in one place.
2. Discuss world issues in a remarkable environment
Oxford has educated 37 heads of government from 19 different countries (not including the UK), as well as more British Prime Ministers than any other university in the world.
3. … with a remarkable group of people
Students from 33 different countries took the Global Leadership Programme last year. Students from more than 100 different countries are attending Oxford Royale Summer Schools’s summer school this year. The diversity of viewpoints is hard to beat!
4. … in beautiful surroundings
The stunning Lady Margaret Hall and St Hugh’s College will be the homes of the Global Leadership Programme this year, offering first-class facilities, inspiring architecture and beautiful gardens.
5. Mix theory with workshops and seminars
Global Leadership isn’t about sitting in front of a lecturer making notes all the time – it’s about discussion, debate and learning from your peers as well as your teacher.
6. Become a top-notch debater and speechwriter
Among the skills you’ll learn from the Global Leadership Programme are public speaking and debate: how to write and present a great speech, and then defeat your opponent’s response to it.
7. Learn about politics, economics and international relations
You can also expect to get a thorough grounding in the academic fields that are essential for political leadership.
8. Visit the Houses of Parliament
All students on the Global Leadership Programme get the chance to explore the world-famous Houses of Parliament, the home of British democracy.
9. Express yourself with confidence
Leaders are seldom shy and retiring – but if you’re not confident about speaking out, don’t worry! ORA prioritises constructive conversations in classes, so you can increase your confidence over the duration of the course.
10. Have a fantastic time
Taking a course with Oxford Royale Summer Schools isn’t just about learning fascinating things in the classroom and increasing your future chances (though we prioritise those things as well). It’s also packed with excursions, activities and parties, and the Global Leadership Programme is no exception.
With spaces still available for 19th July – 1st August and 2nd August – 15th August, now is a great time to book for the Global Leadership Programme ➙
