ORA in the USA!
Another milestone achieved for Oxford Royale Academy this summer, with our first Summer School abroad in Yale, as well as offering 5 students the chance to study at Stanford.
An outstanding collaboration between Oxford Royale Summer Schools and Stanford Pre-Collegiate International Institutes started this summer. The 5 selected students will experience academic life at Stanford, one of America’s top universities, joining students from all over the world in exploring different subjects while enjoying a varied and exciting cultural programme. Students will hone their skills in critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and innovation, while also being exposed to a range of subjects taught in the Stanford schools of Humanities, Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, and Business.
The programme with Stanford Pre-Collegiate International Institutes will provide students with a tailored selection of unique seminars and workshops, including such topics as Design Thinking, Neuroscience, Creative writing and other topics not usually covered at school. Courses are designed, developed and delivered by expert academics who are passionate about their subjects and seek to share this passion with their students. Tutors conduct research at the cutting edge of their subject areas and are able to provide an insight into new and exciting developments that go beyond material covered at school, providing a taste of university-level study.
