You'll have regular online Masterclasses alongside your daily subject tutorials. These are skills-based sessions run by experts and offered to OxBright students on all courses.
In these sessions, you'll learn skills that will be important for your future — no matter which path you pursue at university.

- Memory and study skills
One of the best things about our Online Summer School is how diverse our student body is: over 2,500 students from 80 nationalities have joined!
While you'll mostly spend time with the students who are studying the same programme as you - getting to know them in group activities, breakout rooms, and teamwork - you'll also get to meet students from other programmes during our weekly Socials.
The video Socials are a chance for you to get to know other students over a game, a quiz or a group activity run by our team. These events are informal, relaxed, and friendly - come along to take a break from academic study and make friends from around the world!
Attend an online Graduation event at the end of your programme to celebrate your achievements with your family members, friends, teachers, and fellow students.
If you'd like, you can volunteer to speak about your experiences on the programme with the rest of the group - the perfect way to take stock of what you've achieved.
We'll send you the recording of the event so that you can look back on it in the future, or share it with any family members who weren't able to join live.
Certificate and Letter of Recommendation
When you successfully complete an online summer school course, you'll receive a Certificate of Achievement and a personalised Letter of Recommendation from your tutor, outlining what you covered on the course and your personal skills and strengths.
You'll be able to use this letter as an academic reference for future university, internship or job applications.
