Summer Programmes in Oxford 2023 – OISC

19 Jul 2023

After a brilliant return to in-person summer programmes in 2022, we are already looking forward to an even busier and more international summer in 2023!

Oxford International study centreSummer in Oxford is a fascinating experience. The colleges, galleries and history of one of the world’s most famous Universities provide an inspiring and beautiful environment for students from all over the world. Oxford International Study Centre has organised summer programmes for many years, welcoming students of all ages from over thirty countries. Older students are sometimes taught in the University, as well as at OISC, which occupies a listed building in the very centre of Oxford, next to Christ Church, one of the largest Colleges of the University, and home to the famous Cathedral.

Our summer programmes are very international, with students from over thirty countries. We welcome students of all ages, including juniors under 14 years, unlike many colleges, and adults of all ages. Teachers may join adult professional groups.

Our summer programmes run from mid-June to early September every year, and enrolment is very flexible. Students can begin their programme on any Monday, and are welcome to join for any duration, from 1 week, to 8 weeks or longer as needed.

Students who wish to study with us outside this period are welcome to join us on one of our year-round programmes, either in English Language or in a range of academic subjects.
