High School Program
The Oxford Summer Seminars
The Seminars are condensed versions of our 4-week Tradition program in which participants experience life at the University of Oxford. They choose one subject per session to explore with an expert.
Outside the classroom, students attend academic talks, take part in workshops designed to exercise their academic skills and assist with their university applications and, of course, immerse themselves in Oxford’s remarkable cultural scene, from attending productions of Shakespeare to visiting historic sites such as the Bodleian Library, Christ Church College, and Blenheim Palace.

Full Course List
Every class is designed to use Oxford as a teaching tool. When not in class, students have access to a full range of activities designed to help them discover Oxford and immerse them in English culture. They have the option to take tours of sights like the Bodleian Library and Christ Church, take part in a variety of sports, or attend local Shakespeare productions. Alongside, students are given the opportunity to learn about applying to UK universities.
Accommodation and Rooms
In Oxford, students live in rooms that are occupied by undergraduates during the year. Students are housed in singles or doubles. Students can request a private bathroom (for a fee), on a first-come, first-served basis.
Students have access to common areas within the residences as well as a variety of sporting and educational facilities (gyms, basketball courts, tennis courts, pitches, libraries). Oxbridge provides every program with computers, so students have daily access to email and social media. The program staff maintains message boards and distributes mail every day.
Students enjoy breakfast and dinner in their residence's dining halls. Breakfast is primarily continental style with choices such as cereal, yogurt, fruit, toast, coffee, and tea. Several options are available at dinner, including a vegetarian dish and a salad bar. Special dinners are regularly held, and each program ends with a formal banquet. Students are responsible for their own lunch, which can be purchased from a college snack bar or one of the many sandwich shops, small restaurants, patisseries, or bodegas near each residence.
After the Program
Shortly after the program, all students and their parents receive a comprehensive set of grade reports, presenting their course syllabus and highlighting their specific contributions and achievements within their course(s). Most of our alumni later ask for additional copies to include in their college applications.
