Take inspiration from the bustling, global city of London and develop up-to-the-minute skills that will prove invaluable for your future studies and your career.
Tech and coding affect every aspect of our lives, from where we live, to what we eat, to how we earn money, to how we communicate with each other. At Oxford Royale Academy, you’ll learn not just the theory behind tech and coding, and not only the practical skills needed to work in these fields, but you’ll also consider the role that tech plays in our society, and whether you think that role should change.
What’s more, you’ll be able to consider these questions alongside fellow students from all over the world. Students of 150 different nationalities are represented on our courses, bringing diverse perspectives to share in class. Tech crosses borders and brings us closer together, and so do our programmes, enabling you to understand more about how tech functions internationally, in different countries and in different cultures.
At Oxford Royale Academy’s Tech and Coding Summer School in London, you can get to grips with the amazing world of tech, from the principles that underpin it, to practical skills such as writing your own code and building your own robot.
The first 20 years of the 21st century have shown the importance of developing skills in tech and coding for career success.
Maybe you’re looking to work in tech long-term, and learning how to code is the first step towards becoming a programmer. But this doesn’t have to be the case for tech skills to be valuable. There’s no such thing as a tech-free job any more, so understanding the technology that you’re using makes you an asset to any company.
With Oxford Royale Academy, you can take the first steps towards developing this understanding.
Tech affects all of us every day, and it’s quite possible that the career you have in the future will be determined by technology that hasn’t even been developed yet. Yet many people use technology without much understanding of the programming that underpins it, its potential and its limitations.
By studying tech and coding with Oxford Royale Academy, you can get to grips not only with the impact of tech on the world today, but with what might be possible in the future, for instance through new and developing technologies such as artificial intelligence and quantum computing.
The focus of all of our tech and coding courses in London is not on the theory behind tech, nor on its potential impacts on society, though these are important too.
Instead, what we focus on is the hands-on, practical aspects of tech and coding, from building your own robots, to writing your own app, to creating your own interactive website. This keeps lessons exciting and provides a source of motivation, as you can see for yourself the outcome of all your hard work.
It’s important to us at Oxford Royale Academy that you enjoy your time with us as a holiday, as well as a boost to your studies. So all our programmes include an action-packed calendar of activities, excursions, extracurricular activities, parties and more.
You might have the opportunity to go for a traditional afternoon tea, to tour landmarks such as the London Eye or the Houses of Parliament, to learn fencing or archery, to visit the London Zoo or Buckingham Palace, and to get out of the city to see famous historical sites such as Stonehenge or the Roman ruins in Bath.
While the exact activities vary depending on which programme you choose, you can be sure that there’ll be plenty of fun things to do in your free time.
