The Oxford College Experience programme is an ideal way for students to immerse themselves in English with full concentration on the course. Students sleep, dine and study within the college.
OISE's philosophy of total language immersion plays an important role, meaning the whole learning experience is structured to teach relevant vocabulary and expressions, and to provide constant opportunities for students to reinforce what is learned in by applying it to natural, real-world situations, both in the classroom and outside of it.
The Oxford College Experience prepares young learners between ages 14 to 17 for a successful future career. The course is set at the prestigious Brasenose College, the school provides an elegant introduction to British university life. OISE welcomes accomplished English learners wanting to challenge themselves in order to achieve an all-rounded competence of the language; both in intellectual and social respects.
The Oxford College Experience programme offers ambitious and motivated 14-17 year olds the opportunity to prepare for an aspirational, professional future environment through skill-based workshops, field trips and case study analyses.
Students at Brasenose College enjoy a jam-packed schedule of evening activities which allows them to experience the rich culture of Oxford as well as helping them to relax after a hard day’s study. Typical activities include punting on the river Cherwell, a cinema trip, outdoor theatre, tennis, a ghost tour of Oxford or sports in the University Parks. At the weekend there is an excursion to a place of cultural interest, such as Blenheim Palace, London, Bath or Stratford-upon-Avon. All activities are included in the course price.
A return transfer is included in the course price to guarantee a comfortable and hassle-free journey to and from Oxford. A member of the OISE team will be waiting at Heathrow airport, Gatwick airport or St Pancras station, from where students will be safely transported to Brasenose College by taxi or minicoach.
Brasenose College is ideally situated in the centre of Oxford, overlooking the magnificent Radcliffe Square. Many of Oxford’s major attractions are just a stone’s throw from the college, including the spectacular Bodleian Library, the tranquil Christ Church Meadows and many of Oxford’s finest museums.
