What Students and Parents Say
We are incredibly proud of the superb feedback that we receive from our summer school students year on year. Read below some of what former students and parents have said about their experiences on the Oxford summer school.
"Looking back on this wonderful experience I'd say it provided me a solid insight into university life, as well as the subject of Engineering. I really recommend Oxbridge International Summer School for people who are looking forward to meeting people from all over the world, working hard and playing hard too!"
"I am excited to inform you that I have been accepted to Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service with the major of International Economics! I’m so thankful for my experiences at the summer school. One of my college essays was actually based on my experiences there."
"The tutorials were amazing. My tutor was friendly, passionate, knowledgeable and engaging and the material was very, very interesting."
English Literature, 2019
"It was amazing to get to know people from all around the world and learn about their different backgrounds, cultures, and lives. I had a fantastic experience with my tutor and learned so much about my subject."
"I took pleasure in learning new things and approaching the subject of history from what was an entirely new perspective for me… I will never forget those two weeks and how every day… was filled with excitement."
Politics & International Relations, 2011
"I really enjoyed the tutorials. At first I was a bit sceptical at the thought of having a class with only 6 students, however, it was better than any other class I have taken. The discussions we had were very interesting and everyone was very engaged."
Mother of Josh (English), 2019
"Josh has come home buzzing with liveliness and excitement. He has gained so much from the input from Dan, which has lifted his confidence and skills considerably - he is now like a missile locked on with Oxford in his sights! He's come home a changed man, in all the best ways."
Father of Noah (Molecular Medicine), 2018
"Thank you! Noah truly had an incredible experience, academically, socially and culturally. We know how powerful it was for him when we saw the tears in his eyes as we were pulling out of the train station."
Mother of Liz (English), 2017
“The money we spent sending Liz to the summer school was a terrific investment and we were delighted with the outcome, thanks to the quality and integrity of the individuals who looked after her and inspired her enormously. Thank you for a unique and life changing opportunity. Liz will never forget it.”
Father of Brett (Economics) , 2015
"The summer school was a “life changer” for Brett…Had Brett NOT attended the Oxford International Summer School he would not be where he is today or have the vision for attending university in the UK, including the academic requirements. His exposure to teenagers from across the globe at Oxford had a profound influence on him and really opened his eyes to what was possible."
