Mathematics Summer School in Oxford

Of all the subjects you can study at school and university, Mathematics is one of the most ubiquitous, and as a result, one of the most useful.

Fuel your enthusiasm with our world-class teaching

In most careers, being numerically literate is just as important as being able to read, and more advanced mathematical skills make you highly employable. Studying Mathematics with Oxford Royale Academy will not only enhance your understanding of this all-important subject, but will make you excited to learn more.

At Oxford Royale Academy, our outstanding teachers know exactly how to bring the subject to life and leave you raring to find out more and develop your skills. Our lessons are often hands-on and practical, and what you learn is put into context, so you can see its value.

Strengthen your understanding of Mathematics

Whether you’re a Maths whizz or lack confidence with all things numerical, our Mathematics courses will build on the knowledge that you have already, helping you feel confident in your existing abilities, introducing you to new ideas, and developing your skills. You might even discover whole areas of Mathematics that you had never previously been taught about, and that you’ll be excited to explore.

Our ambition is that you will finish your course not only with new mathematical knowledge and confidence, but with an idea of what you can do next to build upon what you’ve learned.

Get to grips with a key facilitating subject

Are you thinking of studying Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or Accounting?

Then you’ll need to have good grades in Mathematics.

Mathematics is also invaluable for Medicine, Veterinary Science, and Marketing, and useful in a whole host of other subjects. There can even be mathematical analysis in subjects that seem as unrelated to it as English Literature.

This is why Mathematics is termed a facilitating subject – one that isn’t just useful in its own right, but supports you in the study of other subjects. By studying Mathematics with Oxford Royale Academy, you can unlock that potential and reap the rewards in your academic career.

Understand how Mathematics interacts with other subjects

For some subjects, Mathematics isn’t just facilitating; it’s integral, and it’s these areas of overlap between subjects that can be particularly fascinating, and that Oxford Royale Academy teachers can explore to engage and stimulate their students.

Mathematical thinking can be helpful in areas such as logic and critical thinking (logic often uses mathematical equations). It also crops up in more unexpected places: Music can be a highly mathematical subject, as can Graphic Design – or indeed, any type of art.

Study with Oxford Royale Academy, and from your tessellating bathroom tiles to fractals in a snowflake, you’ll be spotting Mathematics wherever you go.

Get support for your university aspirations

In many subjects, there’s a great deal you can do to explore the subject outside of the classroom – think of attending plays for prospective Literature students, or visiting ancient monuments for those considering History.

For Mathematics, the route to exploring the subject with a view to a university interview or personal statement isn’t so clear, and nor is the distinction between different universities when you’re trying to choose the ideal course for you.

At Oxford Royale Academy, our teachers are experts on finding your perfect university and getting accepted – joining our summer school can get you the support you need.

Learn within a vibrant international community

One of the best things about Mathematics is that it transcends language and culture. It’s even been suggested that if aliens exist, we wouldn’t be able to communicate with them through language, but we would be able to communicate through our shared understanding of Mathematics.

At Oxford Royale Academy, you can study alongside students of more than 150 different nationalities and though you may come from very different backgrounds and had very different experiences, the study of Mathematics is something that all Oxford Royale Academy students can have in common.

“I learnt a lot from my academic immersion at ORA, not just about the topics of my selected courses, but also how to organise and express my thoughts in the most effective way.”

“I gained so much knowledge and experience from this trip; it showed me things that are totally different to my home country. Now I’m very interested in studying at a UK university in the future.”

- Vannakhone, Laos

“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.”

“This experience was life-changing in so many good ways. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me realise that ‘the world is my oyster’. I highly recommend this program to students who would like a memorable international experience without limits.”

- Taonga, Zambia

“Living in such a prestigious and diverse academic setting, even if it was just for two weeks, helped me decide what I wanted to study at university.”
