It was a great way for me to learn more about the field that I am passionate about. The medical course was so informational and one of the best experiences. I got to evaluate a real patient and I met many like-minded individuals from around the world! I would definitely recommend Oxford Scholastica 🙂


Both my daughters went on two different summers and equally enjoyed it tremendously. Staff are very well trained and attentive. My daughters made many great friends and learned a lot during their stay!


Just loved the life at Oxford, the tutors were excellent and excelled in their fields, the activities we participated in were some I was learning for the first time and the friends I made from all around the world were some of the kindest people I met. I’m still in touch with all of them even though it’s been two years now. The memories I made there were definitely worth a lifetime. Still look back and feel nostalgic at times.


I absolutely loved my Oxford Scholastica experience! I went to their debate course over a year ago and just completed a law course today! I definitely recommend it to anyone who either knows what they’re doing and want better preparation. or even students who have no idea who they want to be when they grow up! I was both at some point and Oxford Scholastica filled that gap for me. Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity!!


The Oxford Scholastica Law Conference was a phenomenal experience. Each session offered something completely different and really helped build a full, in depth picture of my potential employment field. The online experience is smooth with each speaker being able to fully utilise the capabilities presented by online seminars. I fully recommend this opportunity – it is such a personal and involved experience that can be a gateway to a whole new group of people.
