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.
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.
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!

Designed for business professionals
Strategic boost to English usage in the workplace

Specialist business areas covered by request
The aim of this course is to give a substantial boost to busy business executives, improving in a short time their understanding and use of English in international business and enabling them to perform at a higher level and with greater confidence.
The course covers a wide range of business topics and vocabulary in context, focusing on key professional areas (including management, marketing and finance) and includes work on:
This element of the programme is followed in the mornings, in small classes (maximum 8 participants).
The afternoons are structured according to individual student needs, with a range of options available including one-to-one lessons, private study or sightseeing and cultural activities. Further individual lessons focusing on areas of specific interest can also be added separately (at additional cost) to the course, if required.
Business English teachers have extensive experience in successfully training international business personnel. All of them are proficient in at least one other European language as well as English, and some of them have hands-on business experience.
Classes are small for maximum impact and participation (maximum 8, minimum of 4 students).
The course syllabus includes learning material from a variety of professional sources, depending upon the specific interests of the students, but is structured around first-rate and comprehensive course books produced for business professionals by leading academic publishers. All students receive a copy of the book they use, which can also be used for self-study after the course ends.
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.
Cambridge exam results in the Oxford School of English are among the best in the world, with truly astonishing pass rates. Course syllabus is 15 or 20 or 30 hours per week.
The school has been running Cambridge exam courses for almost 20 years, and has some of the most experienced Cambridge exam teachers you could find. Lessons under their guidance are fun, interesting and ultimately, for almost all of our students, very successful.
This course includes exam preparation only, excluding exam. Please feel free to book your exam extra.
As with General English courses, an Academic team continually reviews the syllabus for each Cambridge exam course to ensure that lessons are a perfect fit for the latest exams. In class they use the most recent up-to-date editions of Cambridge exam textbooks by leading British academic publishers, while the teachers are among the best-qualified in their field.
Throughout the courses, there are frequent progress tests for all students every two weeks, enabling our teachers to check how much each student has learned and to identify any weaknesses, and then to help them overcome any weaknesses. There are also monthly tutorials for all long-stay students.
Most of the students in Cambridge exam courses are age 18 – 25, and many of these are current undergraduates or recent graduates, aiming to improve their English for their university courses or professional careers. Minimum age is 16.

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.Read more
