Why an Oxbridge Summer Education?

Oxbridge is a word that combines Oxford and Cambridge.  An “Oxbridge” Summer Education combines the most valuable dimensions of these premier educational institutions.
 
Studying at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, some of whose colleges are more than 800 years old, provides an inviting — and valuable — learning experience.

 

Meeting others from around the world puts you in touch with rich English and European history and culture.  Learning with others from diverse places makes Oxbridge Summer Education a stimulating experience.

 

When you live in Oxford or Cambridge, you walk in the footsteps of some of the most influential figures in history, including prime ministers, presidents, Nobel prize-winning scientists, authors, and those, like you, who will shape the future . . .

 

Both Oxford and Cambridge have a rich variety of friendly places that make getting to know others over coffee or tea, for example, or a game of soccer or baseball or by punting on the River Cherwell, or the River Cam, an educational holiday.
