New Year Diets Banned as Oxford Royale Summer Schools Expands


No comments

Our course offering for 2018 is expanding, with more courses than ever before, and in more locations. There has never been a better time to take charge of your education.

Sketchy New Year’s resolutions involving salad and cross-trainers aside, (90% of these fail in any case), taking steps towards a goal that is both measurable, and more permanent will set you up for far more success. What better way than by seeking to broaden your mind and gain the edge over competitors for school and university places?

We now offer summer school courses which are residential in the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, London and the University of St Andrews in Scotland. Whether you are new to Oxford Royale Summer Schools, or are a returning alumnus or alumna, why not book a residential course in one of the UK’s top university locations and see where it takes you?

Oxford Royale Summer Schools’s International Study Centre is also expanding its selection at the beautiful Yarnton Manor. As well as our ever-popular Gap Year Programme, we now offer the City & Guilds accredited University Foundation Programme for 17-25 year old students. This is an intensive 6 or 9 month programme, which includes six compulsory core classes and two electives, and guarantees entry to a selection of universities in the UK, Ireland, USA and Australia. It may also help with entry to other universities.

Also new in the International Study Centre is the Pre-IB Diploma Programme for students aged 15-17. Designed for those about to embark on their International Baccalaureate studies, this course encourages practice in the six course groups of the IBDP, as well as subsidiary elements such as CAS, Theory of Knowledge, and Extended Projects.

2018 is already shaping up to be an exciting year at Oxford Royale Summer Schools. Do you have any courses you would like to see us offer? Let us know in the comments!
