Five reasons to book onto our London Summer School for 2017
Our courses are resident in city-centre accommodation, ensuring students have all of London’s cultural, social, and historical sights on their doorstep. Even those of you who have attended London summer courses before are guaranteed to discover your new favourite street, café, or neighbourhood in a culturally-rich city which welcomes over 18 million tourists and international students each year.
London is the most culturally diverse city in the UK, resulting in a broad-minded and intellectually-stimulating mindset which is envied the world over. Within ORA, too, we pride ourselves on the wide-ranging international mix of attendees on our summer programmes: in 2016 we hosted students from 108 nationalities, and we look forward to increasing this number in 2017!
Whether you’re keen to develop your English language ability or keep your academic skills going over the school holidays, Oxford Royale Academy’s London summer programmes are a great opportunity to develop your knowledge at the same time as discovering an exciting new city. Return to school in September with your mind sharp and ready to go.
Whilst we take our academic responsibilities seriously, here at Oxford Royale Academy we like to provide students with a rich extra-curricular programme to complement classroom time across each session. Students enjoy afternoon workshops and guest lectures, as well as the myriad cultural opportunities that living and studying in a major capital city brings: plays, musicals, and museum tours have all featured in previous years’ itineraries.
Options such as Law School Preparation – our London law summer school – enable you to pursue your interest in a career option usually not available until university or beyond. Many of our courses for 16-18s introduce subjects and topics not typically found on the average school curriculum, taking students out of their academic comfort zone and providing a tantalising glimpse into higher-level study. Students seeking an introduction to real-life career situations might like to consider our Enterprise and Business or Global Leadership programmes.
We have five wonderful summer courses available in London, for students looking to spend a productive summer in the UK’s capital!

I had an amazing time at ORA. Every student was incredibly friendly and smart, and I had a wonderful time getting to know each and every person. My time at ORA flew by and by the time it was time to leave I couldn’t believe I was leaving my new friends. I highly recommend the programme as an opportunity to make friends and learn about other cultures.
The Medical School Preparation programme was amazing. The teachers were great, and it has really broadened my medical knowledge. Outside classes, our wonderful counsellors made it unforgettable with fun activities and games. This was definitely the best summer experience and would recommend it for anyone. I would surely return next year.
ORA was a life changing experience. Not only did I learn about different subjects, I also learned who I really am. It was a wonderful experience. I made many friends from different countries and got to experience what university life is really like. I hope that I will be able to come back next year. It was two weeks I will never forget.
