About Us

St Edmund HallThe Oxford Summer Academy is held every July at St Edmund Hall, Oxford University, and nearby Oxford International College. It is aimed at high school students aged 16-19 who are looking for an academic adventure during the summer holidays. We can also accept mature 15 year olds, with evidence of academic excellence. 

We aim to provide the best possible academic tuition and pastoral care. Every student is treated as an individual. We offer students the chance to explore new subjects, experience university study, and visit Oxford, Cambridge and London.

The Oxford Summer Academy is a complete package, offering academic tuition during the mornings, participation in electives during the afternoons, and a wide range of cultural activities and excursions on weekends and in the evenings.

Our academic integrity is very important to us. The major and minor academic options have clearly defined educational aims, objectives, syllabi and assessment criteria. The afternoon electives are designed to broaden students’ experience and lead to achievements that can enhance university applications. Our teaching staff are graduates and tutors of Oxford and other world-class universities. Our class sizes never exceed 6 and are often smaller.

We have tried to give you as much information as possible on this website, including plenty of photographs and interviews with students from previous courses, and we would be delighted to answer any question you may have over the phone or per email.

We hope that you will share our passion and enthusiasm for education and we look forward to welcoming you to Oxford.
