About us

Oxford Summer Courses was established in 2010 by a network of Oxford alumni determined to share the magic of the university and the city with the wider world. Although Oxford Summer Courses isn’t part of the university, Oxford is at the heart of everything we do. It shapes what, where and how we teach.

We run a summer school which is set to welcome 1,200 motivated international students aged 10-24 to Oxford in 2017 where they’ll study a wide variety of academic subjects and English language courses.

Our small team of 11 staff is a mixture of Oxford alumni and Oxford locals, who together oversee preparation for the busy summer months when a team of 100 tutors and 75 on-course delivery staff join us to deliver our courses. We’re growing fast, building partnerships in the UK and abroad and we’re seeking a dynamic individual who wants to be part of a successful small company and who can help shape our future growth.

Our goal is to share the exciting academic adventure of Oxford – and other elite universities –  with the world. Alongside our summer courses we run a charity (Universify Education) that offers free access courses to encourage applications to top universities from students from disadvantaged backgrounds alongside international courses that take our Oxford-based model to different countries.
