let Bright World find you an Oxford Summer course of your dreams

why does everyone ask for Oxford?

Brasenose College Oxford students

Bright World has a great selection of summer schools across the UK and we feature 32 of them on our website. We do find, however, that we are often asked to find Oxford summer schools in particular.

Oxford is known around the world as being a centre of learning offering world class education. Thousands of students and their parents aspire to obtain a place at the prestigious University of Oxford and, of course, many of our students have achieved this goal over the years.

Bright World has found the answer

Oxford University Students

Many students dream about what it would be like to actually study in one of the colleges of the University of Oxford. By choosing one of Bucksmore's summer programmes, that dream really can be a reality. Bright World can help students to obtain a place at an Oxford University Summer School.

Brasenose College - Advanced Studies Programme

Brasenose College

This unique programme runs from June right through to early August and is based at Brasenose College, part of the University of Oxford. Students live at Frewin Court and eat at the Brasenose dining hall. Students on the Advanced Studies Program (ASP) study two challenging university-level subjects in small classes with no more than six students taught by passionate and knowledgeable tutors.

live and study on the river at St Hilda's College

St Hilda's College

St Hilda’s College is one of the riverside colleges of Oxford University and was founded in 1893. Bucksmore runs an Intensive English programme in June, July and August. Combined with a fun-filled activity programme, the course is perfect for students who want to maximise their language knowledge away from a traditional summer boarding school environment. By choosing this centre, students can really soak up the wonderful and unique atmosphere that only Oxford can muster while they learn English.

young leaders thrive at Wadham College

Wadham College, Oxford

Bucksmore Young Leaders is Bucksmore's flagship leadership course that provides students with the key skills they require to become future leaders of their generation.  It is available right in the centre of Oxford to students between the ages of 13 and 18 throughout the summer holidays.

we can't imagine a better place to prepare for university than at Oxford University itself

St Edmund Hall, Oxford

St Edmund Hall was established in 1278, and students joining the Bucksmore University Preparation course will be studying at one of the oldest higher education institutions in the world which boasts the last surviving medieval hall in Oxford.

The UK University Preparation (UKUP) advises students about where and how to apply to university. UKUP provides international students with the best possible chance of applying to leading UK institutions.

A mix of 1:1 tutorials, small-group classes, UCAS application workshops and university style lectures guide students through the application system and provide an insight into life as an undergraduate at a top UK university.

we don't just offer Oxford as a destination

Bright World has partnered with over 30 UK summer schools across the UK, all chosen for their high standards of course and quality of facilities.
