  • Loved the city of Oxford and all the activities it had to offer

“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.”

Studying and living in Oxford was a remarkable experience! I studied Law School preparation, which was somewhat challenging, but very exciting. One of the best memories was speaking in the diverse languages that I am fluent in and having cultural interactions with my peers from all around the globe. My future ambitions to study French and Spanish had been impacted greatly, as this was a huge stepping stone to more opportunities abroad. The teachers were so passionate and knowledgeable about their subjects and this motivated me to pursue a career that I especially love. The staff members are warm, caring and very welcoming. They are ready to listen and assist at any time!

The extracurricular activities included visiting London, for the first time ever, to watch the hilarious spectacle, A Play about a Bank Robbery. What a great laugh!

This experience was life-changing in so many good ways. It paved the way for open-mindedness; pushing me out of my comfort zone and making me realize that truly “the world is my oyster”. I highly recommend this program to students who would like a memorable international experience without limits.
Studying in an inspirational place with influential and intellectual minds was a fulfilled dream. The name says it all- city of dreaming spires. The architecture in Oxford is impressive and has such a rich and indelible history that I will never forget. There is a wide range of fine diners to choose from and so much to do in Oxford, from punting to partying in the magnificent college!

If I could, I would return to Oxford Royale Academy every summer and try new subjects just because there is a wide range to select from.
