Online Learning with ORA – How it Works


Oxford Royale Academy’s online courses – delivered through its online learning platform, ORA Prep – are geared towards students aged 16-18 who are thinking of applying to university or who are in the process of doing so. They expand on the subjects students will be studying at school, offering a taste of what it might be like to study those subjects at university, as well as offering an insight into brand new subjects that students are likely to have never studied before.

Getting Started

To get started on a course, simply select a course from our selection of over 30 courses. You can either choose to take that course only – usually for £29.99 – or to opt for one of our membership options, which give access to all courses for either 3 months (£89.99) or 6 months (£129.99). Once you click on ‘start this course’, you will be taken through to the online learning platform, where you will complete the enrolment process and make the payment. Then you’re ready to go!

Membership Options

Single course: £29.99

If you just want to take a single course, you can enrol on just that course for £29.99*, which gives you access to the course for up to 30 days.

You can purchase as many courses individually as you like, but if you’re planning on taking more than two, it makes sense to purchase one of our package options instead.

FAQs & Troubleshooting

Who are ORA's online courses for?

ORA Prep courses are primarily aimed at students who are thinking of applying to university, and who want to learn more about the subject they’re thinking of applying for, either to get a flavour of what the subject might be like, or to expand their knowledge of that subject.

What is an 'Interactive Course'?

An Interactive course is a course that runs entirely at the pace of the user, consisting of high-quality audio lectures and engaging multimedia.

Can I take more than one course?

Yes, you can take as many courses as you like. Once you have an account after enrolling on your first course, you will be able to view and enroll on any other course from within your learning profile. You can either enrol on each course individually, or you may prefer a 3-month membership (£89.99) or 6-month membership (£129.99) package.

Does my course expire?

If you enrol on an individual course, you will have 30 days within which to complete this. If you require a bit more time, please email us at [email protected] If you enrol on a membership package (3 or 6 month), you will have access to all courses for the duration of time specified in the package. Again, if you require just a little more time, please contact us at [email protected]

Do I get a certificate?

Yes, you will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course. This certificate will be graded with the score from your final exam, so make sure to revise thoroughly first!

My course isn't working properly - help!

If your course isn’t displaying correctly in your browser, you may need to download a modern, faster browser such as Google Chrome. Make sure you have access to a good internet connection, and that you have closed other browser windows and tabs.

Please also make sure you have Flash Player installed.
