summer schools iconSummer schools > Oxford international summer schools

Our International Summer Schools are intensive programmes taught at graduate level. Students attend daily lectures, followed by small group seminars. Participants in these programmes usually have a university degree, or a minimum of two years at university. These summer programmes are not accredited, but those seeking credit at their home institution will receive a `Detailed Certificate` which details contact hours (for plenary sessions and workshops), grades achieved and private study hours.
