Forge new friendships with students 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 provides a unique environment for a study abroad experience.

Within Oxford Royale, too, we pride ourselves on the wide-ranging international mix of attendees on our London summer programmes. In 2019, we hosted students from over 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 Academy teaching faculty. Teachers are highly qualified in their discipline, and undergo specific training in the delivery of their lessons, lectures and seminars to Oxford Royale’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

Whilst we take our academic responsibilities seriously, we also like to provide students with a rich extracurricular 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 our Medical School Preparation programme enable you to pursue your interest in a career not usually available until university or beyond.

All of our courses introduce subjects and topics not typically found in 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-based Business and Enterprise Programme.

“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.”

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.

“This was one of the best academic experiences in my life.”

- Dennis, Sierra Leone

“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.”
