Alex

Engineering, 2018

"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!"

Christina 

Economics, 2016

"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."

Jo

Physics, 2015

"The tutorials were amazing. My tutor was friendly, passionate, knowledgeable and engaging and the material was very, very interesting."  

Eden

English Literature, 2017

"I would recommend this summer school to anyone looking for an exciting, intellectual and transformative summer experience."

Sophie

History, 2012

"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." 

Oliver

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."

Marieke

Mother of Costas (History), 2016

“We would like to thank everybody on the team for making these two weeks such a memorable experience for Costas. His sister…has already stated she wants to go when she is older!"

Jon

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."

Yvonne

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.”

John

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."
