Oxford is home to some of the greatest biological research in the world with departments covering Zoology to Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. Biological researchers in Oxford work in state-of-the-art laboratories and are surrounded by a rich array of resources including the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, the Botanic Garden, the Herbarium, Harcourt Arboretum, the John Krebs field station and Wytham Woods.
Oxford’s beautiful landscapes, rivers and nature reserves mean you are surrounded by the natural world. But whatever your interest, be it protein functions in the body, or the behaviour of the animals in the Artic Circle, there is something here for you.
From age 13 to 24, our Oxford biology summer courses are designed specifically to fit your level of experience.
Oxford attracts world-leading biologists to work in the state of art facilities and your tutors will be among them.
The tutorial-based system is known throughout the world as an outstanding method of teaching. You'll be taught in individualised classes, followed by one-to-one sessions to allow you to explore your own interests in depth. Teaching here goes beyond the facts and asks you to learn actively, taking part and challenging your own thinking, as well as that of your classmates and even your tutor.
You will be expected to delve into topics outside of the classes and are given guidance on how to explore particular areas of interest. You'll then have a chance to discuss your ideas with a world expert in the field, making the teaching uniquely personal.
