Why choose ORA?
Seven reasons to choose Oxford Royale Academy this summer.
Full immersion in the Oxford college environment
Oxford Royale Academy students sleep, eat and study in a college of the University of Oxford — just like the University’s undergraduates. This gives our students the rare opportunity to experience the magic of life in a College of the University of Oxford.
Live in a 17th-century manor house
Students have the exclusive opportunity to live and work in the stunning and historic Yarnton Manor, which dates to 1611.
A recipient of the highest accolade for British businesses
In 2012 and 2016 we won the Queen’s Enterprise Award, “the highest honour that can be bestowed on a UK company” — a testament to our uncompromising excellence.
Develop an edge over your peers
ORA students are taught by teachers of the highest calibre, many of whom were educated or are currently working at the University of Oxford. Our teachers have a keen interest in helping students develop fresh perspectives and realise their academic potential.
Join students from all over the world
Last year our students came from over 95 different countries, and this year we expect to go well above 100. Our summer school is an extraordinary opportunity to make friends from all over the world.
An exciting cultural and recreational programme to complement your studies
Our summer courses are complemented by a carefully assembled timetable of activities designed to ensure that students have fun and make the most of their time in Oxford. These activities include Oxford classics such as punting and croquet.
Visit sites such as Warwick Castle, Blenheim Palace and Stonehenge
All programmes include coach excursions to some magnificent sites, including Stonehenge, Warwick Castle and Blenheim Palace, which is one of the grandest buildings in the world.
