ORA is not just a summer program, it is a second family for students from all around the world. I honestly can't find the words to describe the amazing time I had those two weeks. The lifelong bonds that I formed with students from almost every country of the world, will accompany me as I grow up. Moreover, the staff and counselors were there to guide me throughout this beautiful journey, as I knew that I could count on them for whatever I needed. The lessons were excellent and easy to understand, as the teachers thoroughly explaind everything being taught, while simultaneously making every lesson enjoyable and fun. To sum up, ORA is a place for everyone to evolve and gain independence in a safe and protected environment. ORA is a family.
Such a truly amazing experience, I definitely suggest it to others. It is not only the amazing education given over the time period that you are there, but the friends you make over the way that makes this even better.
Having the opportunity to attend Oxford Royal Academy is beyond imaginable. The summer program included many activities such as football matches, treasure hunts, tennis, basketball and many other activities you may think of. This allowed us to connect with the people we call friends today. Additionally, Oxford Royal Academy has a wide range of subjects you could choose to expand your knowledge on like ( business, economics, medicine, new perspectives) etc, as this could help you explore how passionate you can be about that specific subject. Conclusively, my stay at Oxford royal academy allowed me to understand not only what subject I enjoy learning but also the meaning of friendship and meeting new people from around the world.
Its a serious but extremely enjoyable experience.
it was a very fun experience gave me an opportunity to meet so many new people and make so many new friends as well as learn alot through the classes and also get a small insight of college life
