LEADERSHIP IN GLOBAL CHANGE

How to thrive in a changing world! LIGC is an exciting and empowering Oxford Summer Course for 16 -18 year olds interested in the career opportunities presented by today's biggest global challenges: climate change, plastic pollution, antibiotic resistance, and mass species extinction.

Created by sustainability, communication, and education experts with the Environmental Change Institute (ECI), University of Oxford, this Summer School is based on the premise that all future careers are going to be affected by these global issues. Whether you are become doctor, a lawyer, a business person or a teacher, for those with the right knowledge and skills, global changes are bringing exciting new challenges and opportunities.

 

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, our 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.

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.
— Professor Jim Hall, Director of the Environmental Change Institute - University of Oxford, Professor of Climate & Environmental Risks (School of Geography and the Environment), Senior Research Fellow (Department of Engineering Science), Fellow (Linacre College)

SAFE, FUN AND INTERNATIONAL

Oxford is a unique and glorious place. Small enough to be manageable and safe, full of young people from all over the world, it is the perfect setting for an inspiring and unforgettable summer experience.

LIGC students live in St Antony's College, a beautiful college for graduate students in leafy North Oxford, with lots of other international summer school students. They have lovely, single, study bedrooms in a charming setting around beautiful gardens. They have a short walk each morning across the wonderful University Parks so the School of Geography, where the ECI is located, in the University Science Area. Learning is active and stimulating, and enhanced with a fun packed social programme, exploring what Oxford has to offer. 

Students are looked after by our student care professionals, Oxford Study Courses (www.osc-ib.com), a world leading provider of summer schools for school age students, to ensure that every student has a very personal, caring and supportive experience.
