Oxford Summer Courses has won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for the outstanding international success of our education courses.
The title has been awarded for the company’s sustained growth and commercial success in international trade.
Each year, the organsation welcomes more than 2,500 students to its courses in Oxford, Cambridge and London, as well as at a number of international locations including India and Stanford (USA). Recently, the company has launched Melio, an online course programme which offers students who are unable to travel for a residential course the same experience of learning with some of Oxbridge’s most talented academics online.
Harry Hortyn, CEO and co-founder, said: “We’re immensely proud to join the impressive roster of past Queen’s Award winners. We dedicate this achievement to our indefatigable team whose passion for education and commitment to quality is the foundation of our success. We will use our newfound status to help take Oxford Summer Courses online, to open up exceptional education to every knowledge-hungry student.”
Robert Phipps, CEO and co-founder, added: “I am delighted that the quality of the student experiences we offer has been recognised with this award. It’s testament to the hard work of our staff, who spend months planning and preparing the courses, and the seasonal staff and tutors who deliver such exceptional educational experiences for the students.”
