Course Description

Headington Oxford Summer School offers English classes for 13 - 16 year olds on Oxford’s beautiful campus in the UK. Headington combines English language learning, cultural excursions and activities to create an enriching summer experience. There are both traditional English language classes and combined English Through Academic Subjects.  There is a maximum of 15 students per class, and students receive 15 hours of tuition per week in addition to excursions and other activities.  Each course culminates with the Time to Shine ceremony, where students present what they have learned to their classmates.

Future Doctors is a unique and exciting program for students aged 13 - 16 who aspire to a career in health care.  This program introduces students to a range of topics relevant in medicine today, including: human biology, understanding how doctors diagnose a patient, and emergency medicine.  Soft skills developed in this course include presentation skills and critical thinking.  

Furthermore, students gain practical knowledge by completing a full first-aid training course resulting in a certificate -- a rare opportunity for students at this age level. Topics such as medical ethics are also discussed.
