Examples of challenges
The Discover Medicine students go to Oxford’s famous John Radcliffe Hospital to meet real patients and take their medical histories. They then work in small groups to attempt to diagnose the patients, based on the information they’ve gathered.
The Discover Business and Discover Technology students work together to launch a rocket, with the technology side designing and building it, and the business side writing a business plan and marketing pitch for it.
The Heroes Programme
What better way to learn about a career than to talk to someone who’s living it? Our Heroes programme invites you to meet young professionals in your field of study who’ve gone on to have early success, and:
- Learn more about what a day in their life looks like
- Take part in a practical activity related to their day-to-day work
- Ask them questions about their career path
In past summers, Discover Technology students have met an engineer who helped pioneer the Playstation technology and Discover Medicine students met a young surgeon, who spoke about his experiences in laparoscopy (keyhole surgery) .

Those two weeks at Oxford Scholastica were a really wonderful experience. I got the chance to explore what Law is really all about through this programme. Classes were very interesting and I loved how the tutor made the classes very interactive!
RaviExperience Law Academy, 2017
The Law course was challenging but extremely rewarding, as it assured me that it was the path I wanted to choose at university. The Oxford Scholastica community also leaves you with an excellent support network even after the summer school. Overall, the summer school was an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone.
LinaExperience Law Academy, 2019
I absolutely loved my Oxford Scholastica experience! 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!

I attended the Oxford Scholastica Academy in 2018. And I can genuinely say it was the best summer of my life. Not only were we exposed to different subjects and courses but also so many different cultures and people. I hope I can go back!
PruthaDiscover Business Academy, 2018
Two of my children have now attended this course. It gave them the confidence to surge ahead in life with a purpose and confidence that is so essential. One of the best decisions I made for my children and their futures is to have sent them to the Oxford Scholastica Academy.
