Course Summary

The Ivy League Experience from Oxford Royale Academy has been specifically designed for students who are looking for a general introduction and insight into studying at a top US university, whilst learning more about their chosen subjects.

Available for students aged 13-18, the programme requires students to choose a ‘major’ subject and a ‘minor’ subject, which they will follow for two weeks of scintillating study. Should students wish to stay for four weeks, this is possible, and students will be asked to choose two majors and two minors.

Majors are more traditional academic subjects, whilst minors are more skills-based and are focused on building such valuable attributes as leadership, team-working skills, presentation skills and more. For information on the majors and minors available, please see the ‘Course Outcomes’ section of this webpage.
