Who Are We?

 

Oxford Study Abroad Programme is funded by the Oxford Study Abroad Foundation, which is a not-for-profit organisation registered in England and Wales (No. 10783218).

 

It aims to provide and facilitate international exchange opportunities for university students worldwide. The programme works with a network of Oxford University alumni determined to share the unique experience of the University of Oxford with international students as well as the historic city more broadly. It provides an opportunity for international university students 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 offers a number of subject-specific summer and winter programmes, and has coordinated several customized faculty-led programs with home universities based in Oxford and Cambridge. It cooperates locally with universities, enterprises and multinationals to prepare short intensive programmes that introduce diverse topics to our delegates. These programmes also prepare delegates for their future careers, for those interested in working and studying abroad by engendering a better understanding of different cultures and countries.

 

For more information on all of these and other options, please contact us at info@oxfordstudyabroad.org.uk.

Learn from Oxford academics

Students on our summer and winter programmes experience guest lectures and seminars from leading Oxford University academics.

Educational field study visits

Students have the opportunity to visit local sights in Oxford and London including visits to third sector organisations and charities to learn about UK history, society and culture.

Pub Time at Eagle and Child

For many years we have welcomed delegates with an Afternoon Tea, in local cafès or Colleges with delicious sandwiches, scones and pastries. A host will introduce you to the history of Afternoon Tea and how to expertly pair tea with food, creating the ultimate masterclass experience.  

 

Our summer and winter programmes conclude with a Gala Dinner, which is a great opportunity for students, as well as the lecturers and OSAP staff, to join together and celebrate the course achievements. 

Most courses have a final assessment at the end of the programme where students work together in groups to research, plan and deliver a group presentation based on what they have learned on the course. Some courses also have individual assessments of the students in addition to their team project presentations, depending on the instructor’s course plan. All students who succeed in completing the course receive a certificate of completion and grade (letter). Moreover, the students that have performed excellently during the course will be awarded certification letters.
