Our residential Imperial College summer courses ensure students have all of London’s cultural, social, and historical sights on their doorstep. Even those of you who have attended London summer courses before are guaranteed to discover your new favourite street, café, or neighbourhood in a culturally-rich city which welcomes over 18 million tourists and international students each year.
Forge new friendships from all over the world
London is the most culturally diverse city in the UK, resulting in a broad-minded and intellectually-stimulating mindset which is envied the world over. Within ORA, too, we pride ourselves on the wide-ranging international mix of attendees on our London summer programmes: in 2019 we hosted students from 150 nationalities, and we look forward to increasing this number in 2020!
Benefit from inspirational teaching
All of our London summer courses are designed and delivered by expert members of the Oxford Royale Summer Schools teaching faculty. Teachers are qualified to at least a Masters level in their discipline, and undergo specific training in the delivery of their lessons, lectures and seminars to ORA’s international student community. Lessons feature plenty of dynamic, interactive discussion, enabling each student to contribute their own perspective on the topic, and to learn from others in the class. Courses also include academically-relevant and enriching excursions to sites within London and beyond.
Take advantage of valuable cultural opportunities on our London Summer School
Whilst we take our academic responsibilities seriously, here at Oxford Royale Summer Schools we like to provide students with a rich extra-curricular programme to complement classroom time across each session. Students enjoy afternoon workshops and guest lectures, as well as the myriad cultural opportunities that living and studying in a major capital city brings: plays, musicals, and museum tours have all featured in previous years’ itineraries. Visits and tours of other top London universities, such as University College London, and SOAS are all included, ensuring students have the opportunity to experience and contemplate what longer term study in London might be like for them.
Engage in subject-specific or vocational programmes, such as Engineering or Medicine
Options such as Medical School Preparation – our London medical summer school – enable you to pursue your interest in a career option usually not available until university or beyond. All of our courses for ages 16-18 introduce subjects and topics not typically found on the average school curriculum, taking students out of their academic comfort zone and providing a tantalising glimpse into higher-level study. Students seeking an introduction to real-life career situations might like to consider our London business summer programme, the Business and Enterprise Programme.
