Summer Boarding Courses’ International Relations programmes challenge students to think about key global issues that shape today’s political world. Our International Relations students analyse real-life political models and learn about key contemporary issues that influence modern diplomatic relations. Through the study of contemporary and historical case studies, students are also encouraged to develop key research and debating skills.

All of our students will live on-site at an Oxford university college in comfortable accommodation in a mixture of single and shared rooms. Bathroom facilities will be shared between accommodation blocks. All rooms come with Wi-Fi access.
At SBC, we go beyond the curriculum, believing in learning by doing. Our students are actively encouraged and challenged to utilise new skills in an environment which is nurturing and supportive.
By combining the university learning format of lectures and workshops, students have the chance to engage with theoretical principles as well as developing the soft skills required outside of the classroom. We put theory into practice by facilitating new opportunities to inherit key skills such as critical thinking, leadership, communication and teamwork – mirroring what is practised everyday in a professional work setting.
Alongside a wide range of traditional team sports, students can choose to participate in other wellbeing and fun activities such as yoga, art, poetry and creative sessions. Our social programme is led by the College Mentors with students at the very heart of it, who choose and shape the programme’s activities around their interests.
