Oxford International Study Abroad Programme

 

Oxford Study Abroad Programme is funded and run by the Oxford Study Abroad Foundation, which is a not-for-profit Foundation registered in England and Wales with the No. 11658917.

It aims to provide and facilitate international exchange opportunities. The programme works with a network of Oxford alumni determined to share the unique power of The University of Oxford as well as the historic city more broadly. It provides a platform for university students - an opportunity to pursue personal and academic interests, interact with their counterparts from across the world and to learn from tutors affiliated with this prestigious university.

It also provides tailor-made, Oxford and Cambridge-based summer and winter courses, executive conferences, and other cultural and educational summer school experiences in Oxford or Cambridge. It cooperates locally with universities, law firms and multinationals to prepare short but extensive programmes that introduce diverse topics to our global group of delegates. These programmes also prepare delegates for life working abroad, engendering a better understanding of different cultures and countries.

Extracurricular Activities

Social Activities

Welcome Tea and Gala Dinner

Students will have the opportunity to enjoy a traditional afternoon tea in an Oxford college.

This sociable feast involves drinking English tea whilst nibbling on dainty sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and a selection of small cakes.

 

Gala Dinner is a great opportunity for participants, as well as the programme’s professors and working staff, to join together to celebrate the achievements of the last two weeks. All students who succeed in completing the course will receive an attendance certificate.

Assessment will be based on a final group Power Point presentation revisiting a range of topics covered during the course. Two programme tutors will supervise the final presentation, and grade all students accordingly.
