The Seminars are condensed versions of our 4-week Tradition program in which participants experience life at the University of Oxford. They choose one subject per session to explore with an expert. Outside the classroom, students attend academic talks, take part in workshops designed to exercise their academic skills and assist with their university applications and, of course, immerse themselves in Oxford’s remarkable cultural scene, from attending productions of Shakespeare to visiting historic sites such as the Bodleian Library, Christ Church College, and Blenheim Palace.

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.
Students tailor their course by choosing from an exciting range of major and minor options:
- Creative Writing
- Critical Thinking
- English Literature
- International Relations
Every class is designed to use Oxford as a teaching tool. When not in class, students have access to a full range of activities designed to help them discover Oxford and immerse them in English culture. They have the option to take tours of sights like the Bodleian Library and Christ Church, take part in a variety of sports, or attend local Shakespeare productions. Alongside, students are given the opportunity to learn about applying to UK universities.
