Oxford Scholastica and Oxford University

Oxford Scholastica is separate from Oxford University, and it is important to understand that we have no formal connection with the University.

Oxford University does not run summer schools for international students. The University runs a highly respected summer school for UK students from disadvantaged backgrounds, called Uniq, but it does not offer summer courses for international students.

Oxford Scholastica hires Oxford University facilities over the summer, including our campuses at St Peter’s College (our St Thomas’, St George’s and Paradise Street buildings), Corpus Christi College (the Lampl building) and St Anne’s, as well as facilities such as the Oxford Union and the Blavatnik School of Government.

We hold our Graduation Ceremony each year at the University of Oxford’s business school, the Saïd Business School, on the final evening of the summer school (to which parents are warmly invited), and use a variety of other facilities.

We also have a number of tutors and staff who teach or study at the University, and they come and work for us each summer in their holidays. Similarly, many of our tutors and Mentors on our online programmes have studied or are studying at Oxford University, and work with us alongside their studies.

However, Oxford Scholastica is not formally connected with or endorsed by the University, and it’s important to understand that we don’t offer university preparation courses.

Instead, we’re on a mission to give students the edge to help them succeed, find their purpose and make a difference in the world. You can read more about our Worldview here.
