Exciting preparations are currently underway here at Summer Boarding Courses for our Academic Excursions this Summer. In addition to the excursions we have planned for our English summer school courses, we thought we’d give you more of an insight into the rest of Oxford College’s Academic Highlights programme.
We have almost finalised the Guest Speaker schedule for this summer. On one afternoon per 2-week stay we invite dynamic speakers, who are experts in their chosen field, to come to Oxford College and provide an authentic university lecture experience for our summer school students. These lectures provide further opportunity to broaden our students’ education, help them gain new insights on interesting topics and develop their academic listening skills.
We have some fantastic speakers lined up this summer, including a charity who provide educational opportunities across the globe, an inspirational writer who has motorcycled around the world and a study skills specialist who helps students build on their academic excellence, to name but a few!
In addition, all our college courses culminate with our Time to Shine event on the final afternoon of lessons. Time to Shine provides a fantastic opportunity for all Oxford College students to showcase their academic achievements of the summer, demonstrating their newfound subject knowledge, confidence and presentation skills. Time to Shine events include:
An incredible academic event! We can’t wait to see what our students accomplish this summer at Summer Boarding Courses!
