Summer Boarding Courses’ Engineering programmes are the ideal courses for students who wish to pursue an Engineering discipline as a career or at university. They provide in-depth introductions to the theory of engineering which is applied in fields of innovation, design and construction. Our Engineering students analyse technical aspects of engineering, such as in the construction of bridges, buildings, electronic circuits and mechanical design, as well as the social impact of engineering, such as in how engineering is used to tackle environmental, urban and logistical issues.

At Headington Oxford Summer School, all students reside in purpose-built boarding houses divided into male and female accommodation. The houses are well maintained and are made up of comfortable single-occupancy, twin and small-dorm rooms with shared bathrooms and common rooms. Boarding houses are where our students forge strong friendships, which often last beyond the summer experience. Our House Parents and residential staff are experienced in facilitating these bonds.
