Programme features

This summer programme adopts a unique Anglo-French learning approach, pairing Oxford academics with French counterparts in architecture, arts, literature & creative writing.

The approach to learning is participative throughout, aimed to ignite intellectual curiosity about the shared cultures and artistic outputs of the two nations. The programme encompasses intensive working in seminar groups along with guided, independent study in the afternoons.

During the course, you will:

  • Be taught by, and participate in plenary sessions with leading academics from the University of Oxford and top French universities, all experts in their fields.
  • Be part of a stimulating and immersive group of students, bringing a wide range of experiences to the cultural and intellectual exchanges that underpin the programme.
  • Have access to the onsite library and IT facilities to support your academic work, as well as the College’s Hub café and Common Room.
  • Explore Oxford’s museums, and visit Oxford Colleges, Cotswold villages, and Blenheim Palace, guided by College Fellows.
  • Experience Oxford College life, living and sharing meals in a friendly and supportive learning environment and enjoying that quintessential Oxford pastime of punting on the River Cherwell.
  • Meet your peers and network at a formal drinks reception.
  • Enjoy a black-tie Oxford formal dinner.

All courses will be taught at an introductory level for non-specialists aged 18 and above and no prior knowledge is required.

You will study in small groups, of up to 15 participants, taught by highly-experienced academics.
