Course content

Oxford Prospects Short Programme is designed for academically gifted university students from overseas. Students will sleep, dine and study in buildings hired from the historic colleges of Oxford. Our programmes of talks, activities and trips introduce students to life and culture in the UK as well as the opportunities available for postgraduate study and careers in Oxford and elsewhere.
Activities are selected for each course and will not be exactly the same on every programme. As a guide, our summer and winter programmes typically include:

  • talks by Oxford lecturers and others on academic subjects such as economics and finance, as well as aspects of UK culture such as British history, politics and manners
  • English classes oriented specifically to the needs of high-achieving university students: IELTS, business communication, presentation skills, etc.
  • a panel where students can discuss life in the UK with invited local government officials representing various political parties
  • workshops on opportunities for postgraduate study in the UK and careers in the UK's financial sector
  • guided visits to Oxford's historical and industrial centres including Oxford buildings, the Ashmolean museum and the Mini factory
  • a visit to London's cultural highlights, including Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and Trafalgar Square
  • visits to leading employers such as ACCA, the Bank of England and the BBC
  • a day trip to a cultural centre outside London such as Blenheim Palace, Bath, Stonehenge or Cambridge
  • fun and social activities such as a film workshop, a party with UK students, a film evening, a concert, communal restaurant dinners, etc.
