Excursions and Theatre Trips
An important part of the Oxford Summer Academy is its cultural excursions and trips to the theatre. All students take part in these events which offer a great opportunity to experience the culture and important landmarks in and around Oxford and London. Travel costs and entrance fees are included in the course fee.
Theatre trips often include Shakespeare plays, and these are generally performed in the gardens of Oxford colleges. Other theatre locations include the Oxford castle. Bookings are made in spring as soon as tickets become available.
