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.

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!

OSA and the University of Oxford

Oxford University does not run any summer school programmes for international 13-18 year olds. Oxford Scholastica Academy uses Oxford University's facilities, and we have tutors who teach or have studied at the University, but it’s important to understand that we are run independently of the University.
