Overview

Campus Oxford invites you to join us this summer in the UK! We've organised Advanced Study Summer Programmes for high school students aged 15-18 in Oxford since 1985 and now offer a Cambridge location. These are academically-relevant programmes with a strong cultural and social aspect plus life-enhancing adventures in historic settings!

What is the Advanced Study Programme at Oxford?

The Advanced Study Programme takes place at Brasenose College in Oxford, providing a stimulating academic and cultural residential summer opportunity to high school students from all over the world. Founded in 1984, the programme attracts young people of high calibre, giving them a taste of college-level study together with the chance to visit some of the treasures to be found in these ancient university cities as well as some of England heritage beyond.

The programme combines a wide choice of stimulating classes which encourage individual response and expression with interesting visits and activities to add a superb ‘extra-curricular’ dimension. The residential experience emphasises responsibility to the community and enables friendships to form at a deeper level.  The setting is in one of the university colleges, providing an atmosphere of scholarship - an extra unforgettable dimension!

Academics at the Advanced Study Programme at Oxford

The academic opportunities at Oxford's Advanced Study Programme are unique and cover a wide range of topics. They include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • Engineering
    • Financial Technology
    • International Law
    • Medicine
    • Sustainable Development
    • Politics & International Relations

The programme also employs an interactive teaching method with small groups and regular one-on-one tutorial meetings. This ensures a high level of individual focus and allows tutors to provide constructive appraisal of learning; the method reinforces understanding and encourages greater student participation and maturity.  Students’ thinking is allowed to develop in a supportive environment, providing an opportunity to explore topics of particular interest. The Oxbridge method is extremely effective and students find it stimulating and productive.

Tutors are experts in their fields and experienced in working with young people at this level. Those who enrol with us are typically intellectually enquiring and eager to travel and expand their horizons by developing knowledge and skills. They are invariably inspired by the learning environment and their powers of analysis and understanding inevitably develop rapidly in this short time. Most students are planning to attend a competitive college or university and wish to take full advantage of this opportunity to strengthen their ability to do so!

What is the Advanced Study Program in Cambridge?

The Advanced Study Programme in Cambridge is similar to the one in Oxford but it takes place in Magdalene College, founded in 1428, and the seventh oldest Cambridge College. Located just north of the city centre on the River Cam, it enjoys the longest riverfront of any college. 

Academics in the Advanced Study Program in Cambridge

Students choose two subjects from the wide choice offered, over each two-week period. Most students on the four week programme continue with their chosen subjects although it is possible to change subjects after two weeks. Subjects include but are not limited to:

    • Artificial Intelligence
    • Space Exploration
    • Medicine
    • Politics & International Relations
    • International Business Management
    • Neuroscience

Those who join us will follow in the footsteps of the Kings and Queens, Presidents and Prime Ministers, and Nobel Prize winners who were educated at the University. Cambridge is a city of impressive university buildings, an ideal location for a traditional English summer school.

- Elizabeth - Aug. 15, 2011

“This program was one of the best experiences of my life. I had never left the United States before I came here, but seeing Oxford made me want to travel the world. Of course, Oxford might just be an exceptionally beautiful city and this program, which allows us to experience so much of it, might be particularly incredible.”

- Stephanie - July 30, 2012

“This was one of the fastest months, and one of the best I’ve experienced! This, in my opinion, was a well-spent summer. It broadened my mind, allowed me to socialise with a group of fun and intellectual people, and taught me much about independence. After this, my level of summer expectations will be very difficult to satisfy.”

- Cho - July 30, 2013

“This was such an amazing experience. I now have friends across the country as well as across the world as well as a new home in Oxford. This was an incredible summer. The best thing was making new friends. The worst is going to be leaving.”
