One of the best things about attending one of our summer schools is the opportunity to make friends with and learn from students from all over the world. Having so many bright and brilliant young people from across the globe sharing a classroom makes for insightful debate and an increased awareness in our students for cultural sensitivity and their position in the world as global citizens.
Last year we welcomed students from over 150 nations to our summer schools and we hope to beat that record in 2020!

The counsellors were extremely friendly and were always keen to join in with the activities. Their approachable manner meant that if anyone ever did have a problem, they always had someone to confide in.

“Every day, from the moment I woke up to when I went to sleep, I felt like a University of Oxford student. Studying in the college, eating in the dining halls, sleeping in the dorms… It was a truly amazing experience.”
