Academic & Cultural Programs In England
The Oxford Gap Year, held at Oxford Tutorial College, is the perfect way to prepare for the independent mode of study required at college level, and gives the opportunity to pursue courses of interest in depth and at comfortable pace, freely exploring topics that arouse curiosity. A rich academic offering and skilled tutors enhance knowledge in chosen areas, without formal assessment but with close engagement and supervision. There is space to work on college applications with the help of experienced academic staff, or to take time to decide what step to take next. The program offers an excellent component of a well-planned Gap Year experience. The ambience of Oxford, home to England’s oldest and most prestigious university, provides an historic and inspiring backdrop. Learn more now.
The Advanced Studies Program is one of the longest-established academic and cultural summer programs for High School students. It offers a wide choice of stimulating study courses; the small seminar group and one-on-one tutorial teaching method enables students to develop as confident, decisive and independent learners – key qualities that college admissions teams greatly value. Academics are complemented by a full program of exciting cultural visits, workshops and activities and the breathtaking residential setting of an Oxford or Cambridge college makes this a summer program experience like no other.

This program allows creative, motivated students to be immersed in a structured social entrepreneurship curriculum using the expertise of teaching staff of the prestigious Business School in Oxford. Students devise business projects of perceived social value, which are developed through scrutiny of the various external factors and skill-sets required to make such projects viable. The knowledge gained is likely to be game-changing: critical thinking, business and promotional skills in a context of sustainability awareness are emphasised, to a select class of potential future leaders. The program is residential in an Oxford college. Learn more now.
Campus Oxford promotes a stimulating range of high-quality academic and cultural summer and Gap Year programs to ambitious and talented high school students and graduates, from the US and elsewhere, with an emphasis on student-focused instruction in small seminar groups of no more than eight students and one-on-one tutorials. Students are encouraged to develop as independent, self-motivated learners in a supportive environment.
The prestigious Oxford Advanced Studies Program was founded in 1984. Over the past thirty years, the summer and Semester/Gap Year programs have become a benchmark for academic and cultural experience. Visits and activities provide a counterbalance to the academic work. There is now a summer program in Cambridge. All these programs welcome international students from across the globe.
Campus Oxford builds on long-standing relationships with high school students, their counsellors and parents. We pride ourselves on offering a uniquely supportive service for US and international students who wish to ‘step outside the box’ during their summer or Gap Year, and take an academic enrichment course in the UK in order to extend their knowledge, develop their skills and prepare for the demands of college-level work. We hope you may wish to join these programs!
“This program is life changing. Many people, from all over the world enlighten each other; the friendships which form are strong. Every one of the staff did their very best for us: I appreciated and recognised each gesture, aimed at the students’ happiness and well-being. The atmosphere of tradition spurred me on and inspired me: Oxford is enchanting and I want to come back.”
“This program was one of the best experiences of my life. I had never left the United States before I came here, but seeing Oxford made me want to travel the world. Of course, Oxford might just be an exceptionally beautiful city and this program, which allows us to experience so much of it, might be particularly incredible.”
