Benefits of Online Summer School
We’ve taken everything we’ve learned from running a successful in-person summer school and adapted it to online learning! Our live courses run from June-August and equip students for future success.
Learning in a small group (maximum 12 students) means you’ll get individual attention from your tutor and the chance to ask all your questions.
Our online courses will help you develop valuable skills, such as critical thinking, responsibility, collaboration, presentation, and more.
With live sessions to suit all time zones, and one- and two-week options for our most popular online courses, you’ll find a programme that works for you.
Our online summer school will give you a taste of university-style learning and valuable experience for your college or university application.
You’ll work closely with an expert tutor (a student or researcher at a top university in the UK and beyond), who’s there to support your learning and exploration.

Online Summer School FAQs
Will I get a certificate/accreditation at the end of the online summer school?
Yes! You (and your parents or guardians) will be invited to attend an online Graduation ceremony after the end of your programme with us. You'll receive a Certificate of Achievement, and your Tutor will write you a personalised Letter of Recommendation, which you can use in future internship, job or university applications.
When do the online courses and online internships take place?
How long are the online summer school courses and online internships?
How do I get a scholarship for your online summer school?
We provide a targeted programme of support, OxBright Scholars, for scholarship students, as part of our commitment to provide 10,000 hours of support to disadvantaged students over 3 years. To be eligible, students must meet at least one of our scholarship criteria, and must be nominated by their school. Please note that we do not accept direct applications from students to our scholarship programme.
What are the fees for the online summer school and online internships?
The fees for each of our programmes vary. See our full list of dates and fees here.
Do I need any experience in my subject?
No! We welcome applications form students who have a genuine interest in their chosen subject and a desire to learn more, rather than any particular existing knowledge.
For our online Research Internships, it is an advantage to have taken either an online course or an online Work Experience Internship in your chosen subject, as this will allow you to make the most of the opportunity, but this is not a requirement.
What equipment do I need in order to join the online summer school?
You don't need any specific equipment - you just need access to a laptop or tablet and a strong internet connection. We'd recommend trying to find a quiet space where you can sit during the live sessions to focus and not be disturbed, although we understand that this isn't always possible. You'll also be expected to keep your camera on during sessions, as this means that you'll be able to engage and participate better with your tutor and peers.
For our online Computer Science & Coding Internships, you'll need a laptop rather than a tablet.
