5 reasons to choose Oxford Royale Academy



Live and learn in truly historic surroundings

The University of St Andrews is the oldest university in Scotland, and the third-oldest seat of higher education in the United Kingdom – after Oxford and Cambridge.

Officially founded in 1413 after a blessing from Pope Benedict XIII, teaching has taken place in the university and its host town of St Andrews for more than 600 years.



Prepare for university at the premier academic summer school in Scotland

As with all Oxford Royale Academy programmes, the main goal is to ensure students succeed in their academic endeavours.

We are determined to help our students aged 16-18 on their educational journeys towards university and beyond, by providing them with unique experiences and the opportunity to study new subjects and open their minds to new ideas.



Immersion in Edinburgh and the fascinating culture of Scotland

Our summer school in Scotland provides students with the chance to engage with the history, culture and environment of the country in a number of ways.

Students will have the opportunity to visit Edinburgh, and the University of Edinburgh, experiencing the sights of Scotland’s capital city, with possible destinations including Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat and Edinburgh Old Town.



Be taught by leading academics and industry professionals

The right teacher can be life-changing – they can spark a love of learning in a particular subject area that can come to define a person’s university life, and even their career.

We are committed to providing our students with access to the best possible teaching faculty. All Oxford Royale teachers are united in their passion for international education.



Walk in the footsteps of some impressive St Andrews alumni

In its 600-year history, the University of St Andrews has educated some very distinguished alumni. The most notable of recent times are, of course, Prince William and his wife Kate – the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

In addition to the royals, other notable alumni of St Andrews include Edward Jenner, the pioneer of the smallpox vaccine, and six-time Olympic champion cyclist Sir Chris Hoy.
