The Oxford Scholastica Academy is a prestigious British summer school held on the Oxford University campus.
They offer academic summer courses for bright 15-18 year olds from the UK and around the world, inspiring the next generation of young people to experience what it’s like to study at a leading university.
The Oxford Scholastica Academy is particularly relevant for students thinking about applying to a leading university in the UK/elsewhere, or looking to experience the Oxford culture and style of learning. The OSA team and tutors studied at Oxford University, and were so inspired by the city that they set up the Academy to give other young people the opportunity to experience life at Oxford. You'll get to live on the Oxford University campus, replicating the typical student experience.
You will be staying in St Thomas’s, a modern annex in the heart of Oxford. You’ll be living like a university student, with your very own bedroom and bathroom. St Thomas’s is owned by St Peter’s College, one of the 38 colleges of Oxford University. During their second and third years, many students at Oxford live in their college’s annex accommodation in various places around Oxford.
At the Oxford Scholastica Academy you’ll explore a subject and discover a career, preparing you for university, professions and life. Their courses include Leadership, Enterprise, Creative Writing, Young Doctors, Law, Shakespeare and many more.
You'll also go on trips to London (visiting the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre) and to Windsor Castle (the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, and the Official Residence of Her Majesty The Queen).
Oxford is one of the world’s most famous, historic and beautiful cities. The history, architecture and academic reputation of Oxford make it the perfect setting for the Oxford Scholastica Academy.
They have limited spaces still left for summer 2015 and would welcome applications from Camp Channel students.
