Our Programs

Build your own unique summer experience.

Oxbridge Academic Programs has been offering summer study opportunities to adventurous students in grades 7-12 for over 30 years. We are based in some of the world's best universities, and in historically and culturally significant cities across England, France, Spain, and the United States. You can choose two subjects - a major and a minor - from a range of more than 200 subjects. Outside of class, there are a huge number of elective extra-curricular activities on every program, as well as guest speakers, workshops, and field-trips. 

Wherever you go with us, you can build your own unique summer experience.

About Oxbridge

Our courses use the city like a classroom, taking full advantage of the local museums, historical sites, laboratories, and local experts available. You will get a full pre-college experience by living in the same spaces as undergraduates during the year. During your free time, you can explore a new city and make friends with peers from across the world. Whether your dream is to study Medicine at Oxford, improve your French or Spanish, or make a film in Los Angeles, we have a program for you!

College Preparatory Credit

College Preparatory Credit is offered on most Oxbridge programs through the University of California San Diego Extension Pre-College Program. Students who attend any four-week program and complete all course requirements are eligible for four credits. Students who attend any two-week session in Cambridge or Boston and complete all course requirements are eligible for two college credits. Students who attend two-week sessions also have the option of receiving one additional credit should they complete an essay. College Preparatory Credit is not available for the Oxford Spring or Summer Seminars or the New York College Seminar. Students must have already begun 9th grade (Year 10 in the UK system) by the start of the program to be eligible for credits. Credits earned may be transferable to select colleges and universities in the US and abroad.

Student Safety & Supervision

Your child’s safety is our top priority.

We have over three decades of experience. In that time, we have devised protocols to resolve issues that can come up when students are away from home.

Our staff meet every student at the airport, and escort them to the program campus. The programs are all located in venues with 24-hour professional security. We employ teams of highly-qualified and experienced high-school teachers as Program Directors and Deans to manage any pastoral needs. Every program has an office on-site that is open for student support and parent calls from 8:00am until midnight, and we have staff residing on every hall with our students should they need support during the night. Our programs are zero tolerance for drugs and alcohol.

Program Blogs

Every summer our students and staff create program blogs to keep family members and friends abreast of their adventures around the world. Our blogs may not be great works of literature, but they do paint a clear picture of student life on the programs that tell us about activities, performances in a variety of classes, guest speakers, and more.
