Our Mission

Our mission is to broaden the academic and cultural horizons of young people and adults, preparing them for success in their studies and careers.

We aim to foster a passion for learning, paired with a sense of belonging to the Oxford Royale Academy community; many students make friends on their summer courses and then return year on year to catch up and try out new subjects or locations.

We take student feedback very seriously and are committed to ensuring that our educational courses are delivered at an extremely high level. We are immensely proud of our students past and present and ORA alumni go on to study at many of the world’s top universities.

“Oxford Royale Academy creates a small family-like community that makes everyone feel welcome and cared for. All in all, my experience at ORA is something that I will always remember and be grateful for.”

- Wisam, Sudan

“One benefit of a programme of this kind is the diversity and the fact that the students came from many different countries. In my opinion, that made discussions and debates more dynamic, as it wasn’t biased and we almost always saw multiple sides to the same story.”

- Danae, Trinidad and Tobago
