Develop your language skills over the summer in a safe and supportive environment

Our friendly team offer a warm welcome to all students and provide excellent pastoral care. The team is led by an experienced Course Director with the support of an Activity Director, Director of Studies and a Welfare Officer. We have a high staff to student ratio, so students benefit from the support they need, especially if it is their first time away from home.

We offer a wide range of activities to help students make friends and settle in. Learning to live together with students from all over the world is a valuable part of the experience. Our team help students settle in and they quickly learn who to ask and where to go for help.

Our courses include study visits and excursions to historic and cultural locations in the city of Oxford and beyond. Our students enjoy trips to local theme parks as well as cultural locations like the birthplace of William Shakespeare and World Heritage sites like Stonehenge. City visits are also a regular activity and many enjoy visits to Windsor, Bath and London amongst many others. Our Summer School is located just over an hour from London and the airports.
