Oxford is a city in the South East region of England and the county town of Oxfordshire. With an estimated 2015 population of 168,270, it is the 52nd largest city in the United Kingdom, and one of the fastest growing and most ethnically diverse. The city is situated 57 miles (92 km) from London, 69 miles (111 km) from Bristol, 65 miles (105 km) from both Southampton and Birmingham and 25 miles (40 km) from Reading.
The city is known worldwide as the home of the University of Oxford, the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Buildings in Oxford demonstrate notable examples of every English architectural period since the late Saxon period. Oxford is known as the “city of dreaming spires”, a term coined by poet Matthew Arnold. Oxford has a broad economic base. Its industries include motor manufacturing, education, publishing and a large number of information technology and science-based businesses, some being academic offshoots.
It’s hard not to be drawn in by the academic atmosphere that you find around the streets of Oxford. The centre of British education for centuries, there aren’t many more inspiring places to develop your language skills.
Just an hour or so to London means that there is time for two included trips down to the capital to take in the major sights and complete the ultimate UK language trip.
In Oxford we follow our Academic program, consisting of 20 hours of English tuition (5 hours more than our regular courses) and 2.5 hours of language and history lectures per week.
