Friends are for life
Coming to a Summer School in a country different from your own can be a little daunting, but this is your chance to make many friends from all over the world (who are probably feeling a little bit nervous too)!
We see students form very strong friendships with each other and they last. So much so that students will return Summer upon Summer to be able to see their friends that they met from many years before.
We have even seen that students at SBC Oxford will choose to call their friends who may have returned home sooner than them, instead of their parents, during Phone Time. This is how close students become.
Almost all of the testimonials we received from our students talked about friendship! This is what our students have to say:
‘I’ve returned before and I will again. It is an amazing experience. I made so many friends that I can’t count them all. I still keep in touch with most of them!’ – Angelica from Italy
‘I return because I want to see my friends from the year before…and I love travelling!’ – Manolis from Greece
‘You meet your friends again from other countries. It’s a reunion!’ – Justus from Germany
‘Summer Boarding Courses hold a special place in my heart because of the lifelong friends I have made along the way’ – Abdullah, Oman
