Mathematics Summer School in London

The fascinating subject of Mathematics helps us to decode the world and universe around us. Find out more about it with Oxford Royale Academy in the exciting and dynamic city of London.

Study Mathematics at the cutting edge

Mathematics is the universal language of existence, underpinning Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Engineering and even Music.

Oxford Royale Academy students come from many different countries, backgrounds, school systems and educational levels, so it’s likely that you and your classmates will have different baseline levels of mathematical knowledge.

But that isn’t a problem, because our Mathematics programmes don’t simply aim to teach you more of what you’ve learned at school. Most Mathematics taught at school is decades or even centuries old, and though these basics are important, they’re not the most interesting part of what the subject of Mathematics has to offer.

Mathematics courses in London

At Oxford Royale Academy’s Mathematics Summer School, our programmes will teach you the kind of up-to-the-minute Mathematics that you might encounter as a first-year undergraduate at university, mixed in with some older Mathematics that you’d still be unlikely to encounter at school. That means that what we’re teaching you will be brand new and exciting for every student, introducing you to the fun of Mathematics in a way that you might never have experienced before.

Learn in a lively, interactive classroom environment

Mathematics can often be taught in a silent classroom as students work their way painstakingly through problems – but that isn’t how we like to teach at Oxford Royale Academy. Instead, our teachers are trained in the latest interactive teaching techniques, so that our classrooms are a lively and fun place to be.

Much of what you learn will be underscored by hands-on activities to help bring concepts to life and demonstrate what Mathematics can do when it’s taken from the theoretical into the practical realm. This makes lessons more memorable and helps you see the purpose behind your studies, beyond learning for learning’s own sake.

Study alongside students who share your interests

Depending on where you’re from in the world, you might not know that many people who share your interest in Mathematics, or at least who are happy to be enthusiastic about it.

One of the best things about studying Mathematics at summer school is being surrounded by fellow students who share your interest and enthusiasm for Mathematics, and, just like you, are eager to learn more.

This creates a great atmosphere where students can encourage one another and work together in order to grow their understanding in a supportive environment.

Enhance your studies with activities and excursions

Studying Mathematics with Oxford Royale Academy doesn’t have to mean eating, sleeping and breathing Mathematics for your entire stay with us. We know you’re on holiday, so our programmes include plenty of activities and excursions alongside your classroom study.

You’ll have free time to explore London in small groups, and you’ll get to see all the sights as well. There are extracurricular activities available in your spare time, from sports like archery and yoga to activities such as handling birds of prey and learning how to tie-dye clothing. In addition, there are coach trips to explore more of England outside of London, and the opportunity to see leading shows on the West End.

Learn more about the study of Mathematics at university

Studying Mathematics can be quite different at school and at university, which can make it tricky to know whether more advanced Mathematics is going to be of interest to you when all you’ve known is the school variety.

With Oxford Royale Academy, you can find out what it’s like to study Mathematics at university, both in terms of the environment you’ll be living in, and the content you’ll be learning, so you can work out whether you’d like to pursue your studies at university level. If that is the case, our expert teachers can help support you on questions like which university is right for you, and how to excel in Mathematics interviews.

Explore possible careers for mathematicians

Beyond obvious examples like Accountancy, you might not know what careers are available for mathematicians. The good news is that there are far more careers out there for people with Mathematics expertise than you might realise, from academia, to data analysis, to climate modelling, to sound engineering, and much more besides.

With Oxford Royale Academy, you can find out all about the careers that further study of Mathematics could prepare you for, and learn about different routes that you could take in order to achieve one of those careers in years to come.

I have gained more knowledge, and can therefore make more of an impact on the world. I think that my future goals have become clearer as I have explored options at ORA.

“In every topic, every student equally contributed his or her ideas and made each other see things from a different lens. It was this abundance of new perspectives and the chance to look at things from those different angles that made it an extremely fulfilling experience.”

“ORA summer school was about learning and working hard, but it meant so much more. The people you knew there were special; the friends we made were special.”

- Sofia, Cuba

“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.”
