Oxford-China Summer Program

The Oxford-China Summer Program 2019       


After an extensive experience with conducting summer programs in Oxford for 8 years, The Oxford Institute organised its first Summer Program abroad, in Sichuan province of China in the summer of 2018. With 200+ students and a well-qualified team of Oxford University academics, the program proved to be a huge success and will therefore continue during summer 2019!


The camp takes place in Sichuan province which is a southwestern Chinese province that contains a stretch of Asia’s longest river, the Yangtze. The region is the home of giant pandas, which visitors can observe at Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding and other reserves. Chengdu, the provincial capital, is a center for traditional Sichuanese opera, which include fire-breathing and sleight-of-hand mask changes.


The Program will be hosted at Chengdu Royal Foreign Language School; a leading boarding school in Chengdu, where students are educated within the 75 acres of beautiful grounds. Alongside such an enviable location, the School prides itself on exceptional academic achievement, genuine pastoral care and empathy, and superb facilities. These include bright modern classrooms as well as state-of-the-art rooms for Science, Art, Music and Design. Furthermore, it includes impressive sports facilities and local Sichuan style food.
