Students are responsible for obtaining their own visa prior to travelling, but can request assistance from Oxford Royale Academy if required. You can find some helpful information here
The Medicine course gave me the opportunity to meet people from around the world with the same passion as me. My new friends and I were able to discuss and exchange information to support each other...
Year after year the allure of Oxford Royale has pulled me back. I met many different people during my first two weeks from different cultures and backgrounds.
I decided to return because I fell in love with Oxford, the gardens, the old buildings, the good books…
I found the Oxford Royale course online, saved the link as ‘life saving course.’ What I needed the most was help with my UCAS application, but I also wanted to challenge myself intellectually and learn new things
This summer school has taught me many things, including the basics of engineering, which will most definitely help me in my future – academically and professionally.
Oxford Royale Academy creates a small family-like community that makes everyone feel welcome and cared for. All in all, my experience at Oxford Royale is something that I will always remember and be grateful for.
I gained so much knowledge and experience from this trip; it showed me things that are totally different to my home country. Now I’m very interested in studying at a UK university in the future.
This experience was life-changing in so many good ways. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me realise that ‘the world is my oyster’. I highly recommend this program to students who would like a memorable international experience without limits.
