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.

Whether in business, politics, education, academia, food production, healthcare or elsewhere, future leaders face a rapidly changing and complex world. The ‘Leadership in Global Change’ summer school provides an unbeatable opportunity to gain a new understanding of the critical issues that face all of us. The ECI opens its doors for the first time to a younger generation. Partnering with professional school educators and the ECI academics, the LIGC team have designed an entirely new course which will enable the ECI’s academic experts to engage, excite and empower the young people whose future decisions will shape the world.
