Oxford School of English

Boutique high quality language school in the heart of Oxford.

Located in the very heart of the university city of Oxford, OSE (Oxford School of English) provides high-quality courses in English language and associated examinations, while our Oxford OSE Academy offers A Levels and pre-university preparation courses for 16 – 18 year-olds. OSE (Oxford School of English) is accredited by the ISI and the British Council.

More than 35,000 students have graduated from OSE since the college was founded two decades ago.

Every week up to 50 new students join our English language, academic and exam courses, from all over the world - Europe, the Far East, the Middle East, Africa, South America, unusual countries like Polynesia, New Caledonia and Iceland.

Wonderful college building

Our recently-refurbished college building interior is purpose-designed for the modern age, but with the atmosphere of an old English hotel - in a word, unique. From the luxurious leather sofas, mahogany-framed mirrors and potted palms in the student lounge to the sound-proofed classrooms with air-conditioning, projectors and views over the city centre, the emphasis is on both learning and comfort combined.

There is even a piano among the comforts of the student lounge; students who can play are encouraged to do so at break times.

Our two computer suites are fitted with the latest equipment, and our internet connection is the fastest possible. OSE is the official TOEFL testing centre in Oxford, and the exams are taken in these computer suites.

City centre location

OSE is in the very centre of the city, between the Carfax Tower and St Peter's College. Everything in the city centre - sandwich bars, cafes, shops, the university colleges, museums, the coach station, even all the bus stops - are just a few minutes' walk.

First-rate academic quality

Our teaching faculty is second to none: our long-established, experienced team of teachers and academic managers are among the best-qualified in their field, and includes staff with doctorates from Oxford and Harvard universities as well as many at TEFLQ level.

All of the college's courses are continually reviewed and updated to ensure that the syllabi are modern and relevant to today's international topics. In class we use the most recent editions of textbooks by leading British academic publishers, supplemented by our huge library of additional teaching material.

The OSE tutorial system

All long-term students are continually monitored and guided by their tutors, with whom they have a mandatory one-to-one meeting every two weeks, to assess the student's achievements and set individual learning targets. There are also fortnightly progress tests for all students in our standard courses.

Class sizes

Our General English and Intensive English classes are small, with a maximum of 15 students. In the lower and higher levels, there are often only 6-8 students per class. The IELTS class has a maximum of 8 students.

Accommodation

We have accommodation types to suit all preferences and pockets.

- 300 homestay families

- Stylish townhouse apartments

- Luxurious penthouse apartment

Our students are from a fantastic mix of different cultures with different lifestyles and different backgrounds - but all working together, sharing their ideas and time, and making new lifelong international friends. It's a wonderful atmosphere!

Language courses

General English
  • 16+ years old
  • 12 students per class
  • lesson 50 minutes

This is the most popular English language course, largely for the simple reasons that lessons are in the morning, and end at 12:30 (General English 20 ends at 13:35, and Intensive English 30 course at 16:00 or 17:15.). Course syllabus is 15 or 20 or 30 hours per week.

Teachers use course books published by the UK’s leading suppliers (Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press and Pearson produce many of the books we use), continually reviewing the latest editions and switching to them when they appear. Titles used include English File, Speak Out and Navigate.

Your textbook is included in the free welcome pack on your first day.

Most of the students choose the homestay option. Living with Oxford residents is a great way to learn more about the UK and British culture, and of course it's a lot easier in many ways than living in an apartment, as the host does all the food shopping and cooking, the cleaning, and even your laundry!

There are around 300 homestay families in and around Oxford. Every homestay is different and we always do our very best to place students in a homestay that matches their needs as closely as possible – though of course, to do this we need clear and accurate information from students at the time of booking.

Please also consider that the earlier you book your homestay, the easier it is for us to find what you’re looking for. In the summer especially, there is great demand for homestay places, and last-minute requests are more difficult to meet.

Homestay families are located all over Oxford, although most of them are in the north. This is one of the best parts of the city for homestay and there is an excellent bus service, with dedicated bus lanes. Students sometimes request a homestay in the city centre, but as the city centre is mostly university colleges, shops and businesses, very few local residents live here. So it's usually impossible to find homestay places in the city centre itself. A small number of our homestay places are within walking distance, and most of the homestay places are only 15 – 25 minutes by bus.

What you get:

In a homestay your breakfast and evening meal are provided (lunch at weekends, too); your laundry is done for you (although you can usually do it yourself too, if you prefer); and you have a warm, safe home to come back to after an exhausting day in school!

What you need to bring with you:

Just as if you're going on holiday, you need to bring your own toiletries (shampoo, shower gel, shaving equipment, hairbrush etc). Everything else – including towels – will be provided by your homestay.

The school wasn’t networked and I liked it very much. More attention was paid to each student. I didn’t notice much progress, but it wasn’t my aim to that trip. I wanted to relax and learn a language at the same time. I decided to stay in a homestay. The owners were good people, the house was clean.
