WelcomeAt Oxford Summer Programmes, we offer immersive educational courses for undergraduate or postgraduate students with English as a second language. Our students enjoy an authentic Oxford experience, with world-class, small-group tuition inspired by the teaching system characteristic of the University.
Experience oxford-style teaching
Our programmes are highly participatory and offer close attention to each student. This approach to teaching, inspired by Oxford University, encourages students to contribute to discussions, ask questions and clearly express their own ideas.
Every day you will hear lectures from, and participate in small seminars with, world-leading academics.
small group supervisions
We believe students learn better in small groups, in which they receive personal attention from academics and can ask them questions directly.
one-to-one writing tutorials
Our students also enjoy a personal writing tutorial with an academic to help challenge their subject knowledge and refine their writing technique.
applications are now open
Applications are now open for our Politics, Media and Culture Programme, which will run from 24 August – 7 September 2019.

enjoy an authentic student life
Students currently studying at Oxford University will be involved in classes and will lead a social programme which will offer you an authentic taste of student life at Oxford. Fascinating social and cultural activities, including visits to the theatre and trips to London and Stratford-upon-Avon (Shakespeare’s birthplace), will immerse you in English language and culture. You can speak English all day, every day with many friendly native speakers!
This whole experience has been the best two weeks of my life.
Thank you for organising this wonderful summer programme, and for inviting all those brilliant tutors. I’ve made the decision to go to graduate school in the UK!
This course was a really good chance to practice speaking English, because it’s difficult to do so in Japanese Universities. So I hope you will keep putting the emphasis on debate or discussion.
Amazing experience! Memorable and unique summer! This course is far more than gaining knowledge and a global view: it guides us to think and study differently.
It was dazzling!
I have learned many things from different perspectives; we had fabulous opportunities. I cannot be more satisfied.
I learned more from these two weeks than one year in school! Study is not all about school; the cultural experience is much more important for me. I fell in love with the country because of you.
dine in grand college halls
Over the course of our programmes, students enjoy several four-course formal dinners in beautiful mahogany-paneled dining halls, allowing them to sample luxury cuisine and converse with academics, course staff and fellow students.
