Aims and outcomes
The aim of this initiative is to enable students who will eventually have influential positions in business or the public sector to be confident and articulate about globally important issues. It will teach them how to engage effectively with the world’s experts to develop solutions.
This experience will support university applications for a huge range of subjects from business and politics to science and engineering.
Students will spend their days engaged in researching and debating, and their evenings being Oxford students. We hope to inspire them to aim high in their academic and professional careers.
PREPARING YOU FOR THE FUTURE
This is a unique opportunity. In an increasingly competitive and global environment it is essential for ambitious students to take advantage of every opportunity they can for personal development and personal resume building. Students will develop transferable skills and knowledge which not only sounds great on paper but is a real experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
LIFE ON COURSE
Oxford is a unique and glorious place. Small enough to be manageable and safe, packed full with young people from all over the world, it is the perfect setting for an inspiring summer experience.
Students will live and eat in Oxford University accommodation, have the privilege of working in the University Departments to engage with the academic experts. Learning will be active and stimulating, and balanced with a fun packed evening programme.
Students will be looked after by our student care professionals, Oxford Study Courses, a world leading provider of summer schools for school age students to ensure that every student has a very personal, caring and supportive week.
ST ANTONY'S COLLEGE
Founded in 1950, St Antony's is one of Oxford's seven all-graduate colleges.
St Antony's College is for people who have already spent 3 or 4 years at university. It specializes in international relations, history and politics, claiming to be "the most cosmopolitan of the 7 graduate schools" in Oxford. It caters to some 400 students with a lovely mixture of old and new architecture.
"St Ants" is a safe and secure enclosed campus with a very relaxed atmosphere, where students can lie on the grass and read a book.
All provided meals are served in the college dining hall:
- Breakfast is served every day
- Lunch is served Monday-Saturday
- Dinner is served on Sunday, the day of arrival
There is always a good selection of food available and plenty of it. You can choose from meat, fish and vegetarian options; soups; salad bar and desserts. The college caters for dietary requirements including Halal meat, on request. You can tell us about any dietary requirements in advance on your application form.
Monday-Saturday evenings you have the chance to explore Oxford with other students and make the most of the wide variety of restaurants. There's something for every taste!
