Unparalleled Academically Prestigious Venues
Oxford Royale Summer Schools students sleep, eat and study in a top UK university in Oxford, London, Cambridge or St Andrews. This gives our students the rare opportunity to experience life as as a university graduate.
Live in a 17th-century manor house or a top UK boarding school
Students aged 16 to 18 also have the exclusive opportunity to live and work in the stunning and historic Yarnton Manor, which dates to 1611. Our 8 to 12 students stay in the secure and well-equipped site of St Mary’s School, Ascot, with all facilities on-site and extensive beautiful grounds.
A recipient of the highest accolade for British businesses
In 2012 and 2016 we won the Queen’s Enterprise Award, “the highest honour that can be bestowed on a UK company” — a testament to our uncompromising excellence.
Develop an edge over your peers
ORA students are taught by teachers of the highest calibre, many of whom were educated or are currently working at some of UK’s best universities. Our teachers have a keen interest in helping students develop fresh perspectives and realise their academic potential.
Join students from all over the world
Last summer our students came from 135 different countries, and this year we expect to exceed that amazing number. Our summer school is an extraordinary opportunity to make friends from all over the world.
An exciting cultural and recreational programme to complement your studies
