Why Should You Spend Your Summer at Oxford College Summer School?
Oxford College Summer School, based in the heart of the iconic university city of Oxford, gives older students the perfect opportunity to match a rigorous academic programme with an exciting taste of university life. But in what other ways do students benefit from a summer with SBC?
1. Experience studying in the famous university city
It’s not just the dreaming spires of Oxford that make this famous university city the best place to experience student life. Our summer programmes give students the opportunity to live and study within a vibrant student community and experience the rich academic history of Oxford for themselves.
Students have the chance to explore the beautiful architecture of the city centre, relax in the peaceful university gardens and see world-class academic facilities.
2. Preparation for the Future
Whether you are looking to increase your confidence in using academic English, develop your subject knowledge for further study or are looking for support in applying to university, Oxford College Summer School has something for everyone.
Our wide range of academic courses provide the perfect foundation for students who wish to study their chosen subject for their degree. At the same time, our University Preparation sessions helps students develop the skills they need to succeed at further study.
In addition to 15 hours a week tuition, students take part in guest lectures, study skills seminars and university application workshops which will equip them with all the tools they need to excel at university.
3. Personal Development
In addition to preparing students for academic success, Oxford College Summer School also seeks to give our students the skills they need for success in their future professional lives.
Our Time to Shine initiative gives every student the opportunity to not only show their friends what they have learnt during their course, but also to further develop their transferable skills.
Through collaborative projects such as a simulation of a legal trial, designing a business plan for a start-up company or participating in a model United Nations congress, our Oxford College students develop their critical thinking and communication skills, whilst taking greater control over their own learning.
