"Oxford Summer Courses was founded in 2010, when two friends and Oxford graduates decided to share the remarkable experience they had while at university there with the world. The founders- Harry and Rob- had the idea to create short courses based on an honest and authentic taste of Oxford education, Oxford living, and Oxford culture, all served up by Oxford academics.

After our beginnings in Oxford, it didn’t take long for an expansion to Cambridge to occur, with Fitzwilliam College becoming one of our first college partners there. The model in Cambridge was different however, as we built a network of local experts- just as we had in Oxford- to tap into the true magic of the place. Our courses in Cambridge are based on a distinctive approach to natural sciences, unique interdisciplinary courses, and a whole new cultural adventure.

In only two years, we managed to grow our courses in Cambridge to twice the size, from our beginnings of 60 students, we now host nearly 150 residential students across the summer. Further grow is expected in the future, as students are increasingly drawn to Cambridge for its start-up scene, and reputation for innovation.

Since our beginnings in Cambridge, Fitzwilliam College has consistently supported us, and we have been proud to partner with them and host our students there. The college has been perfect for our small classes, of no more than 8 students. Learning in a small group here has allowed our students to gain quality time with their tutors, and ask as many questions as they like. Fitzwilliam is the ideal base for our students to expand their minds, and enhance their summer studies, and we are very proud that the College has hosted us and been so amazing to work with.

Oxford Summer Courses now operates award winning short educational courses at over 7 locations worldwide, for students aged 9-24, with over 40 subjects to choose from. We are proud that many of our college connections and tutors have remained with us from the very beginning, and that our students are continually amazed by all that they see and learn.

 We are also very proud of the recent accolades we have won- including placing in the top 100 FT Future UK, in the top 1000 FT Fastest Growing Companies in Europe, placing 22nd in the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100, and being one of Breathe HR and Real Business’ Top 25 UK Leading SME Culture Leaders in 2018.

 We are looking forward to the future, and to our continued partnership with Fitzwilliam College."
