Summer Courses Inspired by the World-Famous Universities of Oxford and Cambridge

Each summer, motivated students from across the globe join Oxford Royale Academy's award-winning Summer Schools. Throughout the duration of their courses, participants have the opportunity to explore and discuss their chosen subjects in great detail, be taught by ORA’s experienced and passionate faculty, and to live and study in top educational institutions across the UK. In 2018, Oxford Royale Academy will be running Summer School programmes in the UK's top three universities - the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge and Imperial College London - as well as prestigious academic centres in England and Scotland.
