In Oxford, students live in rooms that are occupied by undergraduates during the year. Students are housed in singles or doubles. Students can request a private bathroom (for a fee), on a first-come, first-served basis.


The syllabus focuses on contemporary English through topics specifically designed for junior learners. Language study supplies the building blocks students need to communicate successfully with native and non-native speakers.

Our pedagogical approach draws from theories of authentic learning that recognize learning is an active process. Authentic learning can be defined as a pedagogical approach that encourages exploration and meaningful discussion between students and teachers based in relevant contexts (National Research Council, 1999). We train our tutors and staff to encourage individual student exploration using real-world examples and case studies. Our curriculum incorporates multicultural concepts and ideas to foster critical thinking, self-reflection, and imagination.

Extracurricular Activities

The social programme is an important part of any summer school experience and is great way for students to socialise and practise their English with each other.
