General Information

Students seeking financial aid may apply for an academic scholarship at Oxford Royale Academy, which may result in a maximum 100% reduction in course fees. Scholarships are available for two week courses only.

We receive a huge number of applications for financial aid each year, and only a small percentage of students are successful. Scholarships are available for students aged 13-18 who wish to enrol on one of our courses. Please be aware that travel costs are not included in any scholarship award. Students will be responsible for covering all travel costs incurred.

Aside from summer school programmes, ORA also offer Thomas Garner Scholarships for 12 Week Gap Year Research Projects at our International Study Centre.
