An Oxford Experience

Camila attended  Oxford for a summer session last year.  She raved about her time at the prestigious university.

“What can I say about my experience with Oxford Royale Summer Schools? It’s hard to describe the amazing experience that I had. I met many people from different nationalities.

This course taught me to respect people’s different cultures and it gave me the chance to learn about them.

It also gave me the opportunity to improve different qualities I have, like developing my confidence. As the course went on my friendship with my friends grew.

Positive Change

“I would recommend everyone to do this course because it’s a great experience that you should have and will help you with your future education.”

From the college website, the courses are explained. “Summer School welcomes young people to our action-packed, fun-filled courses either as day students or as residents with their families.

Tutors, Too

With the dedication of our pastoral tutors, we will ensure everyone settles in well and friendships are quickly made giving parents, grandparents, and guardians that all-important peace of mind. Throughout the week, 9 to 17-year-olds can also enjoy supervised entertainment from 5 pm. Activities can include anything from treasure hunts to getting a soaking on our waterslides.

Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and deep-seated desire to connect visitors with the beauty and intrigue of Cambridge life, he designed and implemented infrastructure for walking tours led by graduates and current students.”

One on One like Oxbridge

Today students can study a wide array of disciplines at the college, from literature to biochemistry. “Prioritising one-on-one teaching in the true Oxbridge tutorial fashion, and endeavoring to expose students to the rich research and cultural life of Cambridge, Granta far surpasses the standard.”

St Andrews is famous, of course, as it is where the sport of golf was born. But this seaside town has much to offer, as Cliff McCain described in a story about St. Andrews on GoNOMAD Travel.

The famous university here has a full slate of non-credit summer courses you can dive into.

These courses are taught by full-time members of the faculties of the University and are open to students and individuals from around the world.
