We hope that you are safe and well, and thank you for your interest in our courses. The current health emergency has stabilised in the UK and social restrictions are being eased as the rate of infections decreases. Government policy is directed towards steadily returning to normality, in a socially-distanced way, so as to ensure no increase in infections.
Staff and student safety is our priority and we must be fully confident that courses can go ahead safely, with appropriate safety measures in place. International travel restrictions are being lifted but with quarantine requirements.
Given the current circumstances, summer courses will not take place this year. However, there are online course options for students finishing grades 9-12.
We are offering the following online courses:
-Shakespeare, Creative Writing, Public Speaking, Law & Society, Oxford Art & Architecture, Intro to Philosophy, Principles of Sports Management, Frontiers in Medicine, Intro to Genetics, Global Economics, Marketing, International Relations, International Human Rights, Introduction to Finance, International Business, Psychology of the Criminal Mind, and Developmental Psychology.
Classes run Monday to Friday 10-12 EDT, and run over two weeks. Our next session starts on the 20th of July, 2020 and runs until the 31st.
We look forward to welcoming students to Oxford again and are optimistic that courses will resume this autumn, with hygiene and safety provisions in all settings. Applications are welcome and the enrolment process will take place as normal. We won’t make final confirmation or request payment until infections have cleared, restrictions have been lifted and we’re confident about safety.
Places reserved on all courses can be deferred until the spring term, or autumn next year and enrolment can be withdrawn at any time, with a full refund.
This is an ongoing situation and this notice will be regularly updated. We’d also be happy to directly address any questions you have.
