Course Description

At the award-winning Cambridge Summer School, you'll have the time of your life. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to stay, eat, and study on the grounds of one of the world's oldest institutions. Discover the city that has influenced so many brilliant brains, including Charles Darwin and Stephen Hawking. Climb the Great St Mary's Church tower at the University for panoramic views of the city. Discover the 17th-century author John Milton's favorite gardens and the 1871 Gothic-revival All Saints Church. All of this history and culture will be ideal to share with your new acquaintances from all around the world.

Develop good speaking, listening, reading, and writing abilities in English grammar, syntax, pronunciation, and colloquial use. Increase your vocabulary and lay the groundwork for excellent English reading and writing abilities, which can help you land a spot at an English-speaking institution.

The following are some of the things you will learn on this course:

  • Improve your reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills, as well as your grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and colloquial use.
  • Intensive training and practice for over 20 hours per week will help you improve your English language skills.
  • Use your growing English language abilities with local speakers and in historic settings all throughout the United Kingdom.

We know you'll want to tell your family, friends, and instructors about your fantastic summer of exploration when you go home. We also recognize that you'll want to learn from your ORA teacher not just what you did exceptionally well on your course, but also where you may improve and learn more in the future.

You'll get a graduation certificate after successfully completing your course, which will be presented to you and your parents at a special ceremony on the last Friday of summer school. We'll also provide you a full report card that details all you've accomplished throughout your time with us, as well as some recommendations for future success.

Activities Offered

From the nicest coffee cafes to the dreamiest riverside gardens, from the lively Market Square to must-see stores, galleries, and museums, Oxford Royale Academy can help you discover Cambridge's secrets. You and your friends will have access to an incredible extracurricular schedule, which includes graduation celebrations and parties, city tours, historical excursions, and much more.

Visit attractions like Hampton Court Palace, London's theatres, and Woburn Abbey to create memories that will last a lifetime. 

Food and Accommodation

Most of Cambridge's housing locations contain a mix of single and twin beds, with en-suite bedrooms available on certain campuses and shared toilet facilities shared by a small group of same-sex students on others. If you have a certain room type in mind, you can request it during the enrollment process, which may or may not be granted depending on availability. If you require a certain room type for medical reasons, please contact the camp's Admissions Team, who will be able to verify availability on various locations based on the course you have chosen. Remember, sharing a room with other students is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and make friends.

Meals are included, served in the Hall.

The student will be driven directly to their lodging by the driver. When it's time to leave the program, students are picked up from their lodging and driven to the appropriate airport terminal. If the student is traveling as an unaccompanied minor, please notify the camp when booking your Airport Transfer and the camp will provide you with any further information you require.

Covid regulations

The Oxford Royale Academy staff is now hard at work behind the scenes, planning life-changing experiences for our 2022 Summer Schools in Oxford, Cambridge, Yale, and Uppingham School.
