Individually designed study programmes in the heart of Oxford

The school is based in a listed building, over 400 years old, in the centre of Oxford. The Study Centre retains its beamed ceilings and many other original features.

Students are taught in the Study Centre and in an adjacent building, and in summer Oxford International Study Centre also teaches many older students in a College of the University. It is a well-established college with a Grade One inspection report from the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate.

The school has a regular programme of cultural activities and excursions in the summer, and at any time of year for groups. There are some cultural and social activities for individuals at all times of year, and excursions on some weekends.

These include visits to Oxford’s Colleges, Museums and Galleries, and punting on the river in the summer. The school can arrange for groups to have lunch or dinner in the university.

Weekend excursions include London, Warwick, Stratford, Bath and Cambridge, as well as tours to the beautiful Cotswold countryside.

Courses

The school’s approach combines classroom teaching and activities which make learning the language fun. Participants are grouped according to age and level.

The activities for younger people include producing a scrapbook about the city, finding out about where Harry Potter was filmed and Alice in Wonderland was written, or following a treasure trail to find out about the history and culture of the city. For adults, activities include taking part in a play with professional actors, making presentations, or visiting companies.

The tutors at OISC are graduates of leading universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, and have many years’ experience of teaching both domestic and international students, and international clients. The vast majority of students who apply to university gain a place at their first or second choice institution, and the pass rate for IELTS is 100%.

Type of courses

For students of all age groups and levels. All courses train students to communicate clearly both in written and spoken usage. Students are advised on the best programme for their needs and are assessed on the first day.
