OSE Junior Summer School

Oxford, United Kingdom

The OSE Junior Summer School provides a memorable experience for students from all over the world in the very heart of Oxford

...blending first-class English language tuition with masses of fun in a unique environment.

Now in its fifteenth year the Summer School has been hugely successful, gaining an international reputation and each year attracting hundreds of students from across the world.

Our team of teachers are all qualified native-speakers who are experienced in teaching junior and follow a dynamic and interactive course.

Students are aged 12-17 and come to us either as part of a group or individually. Once here, they soon make friends with other students from the very diverse range of nationalities that visit us each year.

In 2017 we welcomed students from over 30 different countries and we’re hoping for even more in 2018.

Why Oxford?

Oxford is one of the world’s most famous and important university cities. It combines historic college buildings with excellent shops, cinemas and restaurants. Explore the famous covered market; row a boat on the River Cherwell; watch outdoor theatre performances. Oxford in the summer is full of things to do and see. Only an hour from London, Stratford-upon-Avon, Windsor and Heathrow Airport, Oxford really is the perfect place for summer students.

Courses

Cultural English Programme - Homestay
From 16 to 17 years old 15 students per class 1 lesson — 45 minutes

The syllabus aims to equip students with the tools necessary for natural and confident communication with carefully designed courses which engage students and activate their learning. In addition to enhancing students’ language skills like speaking, listening, reading, and writing, topic classes prepare students for their excursions by exploring the culture and history of the places to be visited. Students also contribute to group projects which they can take home with them.

Cultural Programme is one of three programmes available at the school.

There are lots of exciting and interesting things to do in and around Oxford – and our Cultural Programme includes them all! From ice skating to swimming, from barbecues to treasure hunts, from visits to Oxford’s wonderful Natural History Museum to tours of the famous Christ Church College, our afternoons and evenings are packed with fun things to do.

And of course, there is a half-day excursion by coach (to Blenheim Palace, Cotswold Wildlife Park and Warwick Castle) each Wednesday, a full-day excursion (to London, Bath and Brighton) every Saturday, and optional excursions (London, Windsor and Thorpe Park) every Sunday.

Please note that the activity programme includes evening activities every day for students in residential accommodation, but students in homestay receive evening activities only twice per week.
