Oxford Summer Courses has been awarded accreditation by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK.
The British Council’s accreditation enables Oxford Summer Courses to sponsor international students who wish to come to the UK on short-term study visas. Oxford Summer Courses now joins a select number of accredited centres in the UK as an internationally recognised provider of quality English Language courses.
Harry Hortyn, CEO and co-founder of Oxford Summer Courses, said: “Receiving the coveted British Council mark is wonderful recognition of the hard work our dedicated team puts into designing the exciting educational experiences our global students enjoy.
“Now more than ever, students are competing on the worldwide stage for the best career opportunities and this accolade is an endorsement of the quality teaching we offer against the backdrop of the fascinating historical and richly cultural city of Oxford.”
The British Council mark was awarded to Oxford Summer Courses’ English Language courses for ages 9-12, 13-17 and 16-17 year olds following a stringent inspection process carried out over two days after months of preparation.
Although currently just a small part of Oxford Summer Courses’ offering, which also includes academic courses in Cambridge, London, India, Singapore and Stanford, the English Language program is set to grow, and now with the internationally recognised accreditation, the sky’s the limit.
Robert Phipps, CEO and co-founder of Oxford Summer Courses, said: “This accreditation endorses our ongoing commitment to providing quality English language programmes. We are champions of the UK as leaders in the provision of teaching and learning internationally and we’re pleased to have been recognised for that.”
