Bright World has worked with OISC for many years and we think they offer a perfect revision option for overseas students.

Oxford International Study Centre (OISC) is a well-established international school situated in the very centre of Oxford, between Christ Church and the Town Hall.

bespoke holiday revision courses

The school boasts 15 years’ experience in arranging bespoke holiday revision courses for students from the UK and overseas, both in school subjects and in English as a Foreign Language.

A level, IB and GCSE revision

Every year OISC has helped students realise their true potential by offering small group and individual tuition in over 30 different subjects for AS/A-Level, (I)GCSE, and IB, and a range of other examinations.
