Oxbridge Academic Programs welcomes intellectually adventurous 7th -12th grade students to residential spring and summer study programs in the great towns and universities of the world. Guided by professors, researchers, and creative professionals, students immerse themselves in any of over 200 disciplines.
Students ages 11 to 18 benefit from the well-structured academic travel programs offered by Oxbridge Academic Programs in cities around the world. Educational trips of lengths ranging from one to four weeks land students from grades 7 to 12 in Oxford, Cambridge, Barcelona, Boston, Los Angeles, Salamanca, Paris or Montpellier. Guided by professors, researchers, and creative professionals, students from more than 80 countries immerse themselves in fascinating disciplines and creative pursuits.
Aside from the Oxford Spring Seminar, sessions are held during the summer. Academic focal points include arts, business and economics, computing and technology, cultural studies, language immersion, science, medicine, literature, leadership, and the law. Students can choose subjects they have studied previously or explore brand new topics. Grade sheets are provided upon the completion of courses, allowing students to submit them with college applications.
Depending on the location, students live in undergraduate university housing or in boarding schools. Residences are separated by gender. Some faculty and staff also stay in the housing, providing around-the-clock monitoring and guidance. All students must check in with deans each night and then remain in their rooms.
Oxbridge began offering academic trips 35 years ago and has grown from serving 36 students to nearly 2,000 each summer. The organization offers in-person and webinar information sessions for prospective families, who can choose among the available cities and their universities and historical and cultural attractions. Each program location offers extracurricular activities, guest speakers, workshops, and field trips.
