Why Choose OSA?

Oxford Scholastica was one of the best experiences of my life. Not only does it broaden your perspective of the world, the academic part is really helpful in professional lives as well.

Now I am a first year university student, I am able to put the knowledge gathered at OSA to good use, which sets me apart from the rest of my fellow university students. 

Huzaifa Zafar, Pakistan, 2015

I appreciated very much the care and attention that was evident in all aspects of the course, from the organization, the excellent tutors, the enthusiastic atmosphere, the excellent opportunities offered and the general interest in guiding and inspiring the young students.

I could not have entrusted my daughter to a better course. The calibre of teaching, pastoral care, experiences and other students on the course was excellent.

I researched many summer schools before deciding on this one and I loved that I could speak to the course leaders directly rather than to marketing staff of a large company who had never been to the location and had no direct knowledge of course content.

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed it and came back inspired, having worked hard, having experienced some life-changing opportunities and having made some amazing friends!

Rachel L (Parent), USA, 2015

I enrolled in the Young Doctors' Academy, and I actually felt like an aspiring junior doctor practising and learning with the most enthusiastic experts.

Oxford Scholastica didn't just give me a mesmerizing experience over two weeks, it helped me evolve as a human being. From making new friends, to learning how to be independent, I learnt how to make the right choices and decisions.

An Accredited Oxford Summer School

OSA and the University of Oxford

Bridge of Sighs
Oxford Scholastica is an Oxford summer school accredited by the British Accreditation Council for Independent Further and Higher Education.

Oxford University doesn't run its own summer school for international 13-18 year olds, so Oxford Scholastica uses Oxford University facilities and has tutors who teach and study at the university but we are separate from Oxford University. Read more about our relationship here.
