Across a range of courses, we apply our tailored curriculum for a fulfilling and goal-oriented learning experience.
Our A-Level courses are highly sought after around the world due to its strong university preparation focus. We integrate teaching with hands-on experience, career preparation, and personal development. Before they arrive, each student meets with our academic team members to discuss their goals, after which the college offers an individualised learning strategy to follow throughout the course.
The college offers all core subjects, such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Psychology, or Economics. All subjects can be offered if the student’s preferred degree requires them.
We offer two variations of the A-Level course: a two-year classic course with a September start and an 18-month intensive course with a January start.
Our one-year GCSE course offers an integrated curriculum that looks a step ahead to maximise the learning benefits. During this course, students have a chance to explore different subjects and learning styles as well as lay the groundwork for their A-Level study.
Our GCSE students often progress to the OIC A-Level programme. The added year within the OIC learning environment compounds its benefits.
Supercurricular & Extracurricular
Both supercurricular (career-related) and extracurricular (personal growth-related) provisions are key elements of OIC courses.
A dedicated Supercurricular Manager ensures that all students are provided with hands-on experience through work shadowing and internships. Students are also encouraged to attend tailored programmes that develop their skills: Goodwill Ambassador Programme, Extended Project Qualification, or Global Space Design Competition.
We take care to make time for our students’ extracurricular pursuits. For instance, all OIC students are members of the Oxford University Sports Centre, where they can train both team sports like football or individual fitness in a gym.
For international students whose first language is not English, we provide EAP classes (English for Academic Purpose) leading to the IELTS qualification. EAP classes are usually taught in small groups of up to five or by individual tuition for students who require the qualification quickly.
Classes run weekly throughout the term and students can take EAP classes until they have achieved their required IELTS test score.
As I look back at my short but intense experience in Oxford and especially at the College, I realise I had a really great time here. It was for me, my future studies and life, a very important choice.
We offer a range of short courses regarding career and university preparation. In the past, we have teamed up with organisations such as Global Space Design Competition and InvestIN to give students a better understanding of their academic journey.
Our sister organisation, Oxford Sciences Studies, provides expert-run courses on A-Level and GCSE revision. The courses can be delivered both in our central Oxford location and online.
