Oxford International Year Round Groups
At each of our year-round schools in the UK, USA and Canada we offer carefully tailored programmes which can include accommodation, food, excursions, exciting cultural activities and much more. We work with you to determine the best educational and experience programmes for your students and deliver unforgettable learning experiences for the whole group.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A GROUP COURSE?
- Sending a group is so much most cost-effective than having an individual student
- We will have an opportunity to design a bespoke, tailored-made academic programme, that will be as exciting for your students, as well as for our experienced teachers
- Together with our client, we will carefully plan a programme of visits, workshops and other activities to enhance the learning experience in subjects including Business & Employability, Sustainability, Fashion, Architecture and more
- When joining as a group – you will still be able to mix up with other international students or choose to have focused sessions just for the group participants
- Groups can study not only in the class but also have lessons on locations, whether it is a Museum, Business Enterprise or Science laboratory
These are just a taste of what we have to offer, but remember we are constantly coming up with new and improved ideas – so if you have an idea of what you would like your trip to look like make sure you tell us, as we would love to create it alongside you!
IS THERE ARE MINIMUM SIZED GROUP?
A group must be at least 5 people, but remember if they are a junior group, then they must travel with a Group Leader. If your group has a mix of junior students and adults this is also fine for us but we encourage the lessons to all be at the same time so the group can stay together during excursions and activities.
WHERE CAN YOU GO?
From the sun in San Diego to the beautiful architecture and history of Oxford, we have a choice of 6 beautiful destinations for you to choose from in both the UK and North America! Take your pick from our schools in Brighton, London Greenwich, Oxford, San Diego, Toronto or Vancouver.
