Student Life

Living and studying in Oxford for a year is a unique experience.

It is the perfect stepping stone between school and work, or after a gap year. University graduates from other cities love the opportunity to spend a year here after their degree.

Being in a city world famous for education, our students enjoy the university atmosphere and student lifestyle. They live in our college houses located in the three main areas of the city popular with students from Oxford University and Oxford Brookes University.

The students are close enough to college to walk or cycle within 15-20 minutes. London is just a fast and frequent coach journey to London or a direct train into Marylebone or Paddington.

Classes finish at lunch time on Fridays so students often go home to see family, visit friends for the weekend or compete in sporting events.

The intensive course is 21 hours per week Monday to Friday but there is plenty of time in the evenings and weekends to get a job. Being so close to the Westgate Oxford many of our students work in the shops, as well as the bars and restaurants on the roof terrace.
