At Oxford International College (OIC), we understand that academic success is just one element of what’s needed to thrive in today’s competitive world. That’s why – as part of our unique three-pillared approach – we’ll place great importance on your personal development and career preparation.
Alongside your GCSE or A-level studies, you’ll benefit from an extraordinary range of extra courses, work and internship experiences, clubs, and societies. These nurture individual talents and passions, helping you develop the breadth of life- and career-focused skills you need to succeed at university and beyond.
All our students follow a personalised Global Strategic Pathway. Designed around your university aspirations, the pathway will map your entire learning journey from start to finish. Our ambition is to help you create a portfolio of experiences and qualifications that give you the extra edge when it comes to the highly competitive university application process.
Thanks to our comprehensive Global Strategic Pathways programme, our students receive offers from the world’s top-ranked universities.
For the last two years, one in three applicants earned places to study medicine at either Oxford or Cambridge. What’s more, since 2019, more than half of our students have gone on to study at one of the UK’s prestigious G5 universities. Globally, recent OIC graduates have been accepted by the University of Hong Kong, University of Chicago, and University of Toronto, among many others.
We’ll encourage you to go through the Oxbridge application process, too. Whether you get an interview or not, it’s a fantastic learning experience that’s great preparation for the future.
We’ll help you develop the personal characteristics, values, and life-skills you’ll need to flourish here, at university, and beyond.
Outside the classroom, you’ll enjoy an array of team building and leadership activities, which include an immersive residential trip at the beginning of the academic year. You can join our debate team, effect tangible change through our Student Council, or become a qualified first aider. Our students also raise money for local and international charities, and form meaningful community connections by volunteering in local hospitals and with mental health organisations.
Your health, happiness, and wellbeing come first at OIC. We know that students who feel safe and included – and who are comfortable in their environment – will succeed academically and blossom as people.
In our warm and culturally diverse community, everyone is valued and respected. You’ll be supported throughout your time here by a team of experts, including a dedicated pastoral department, boarding house parents, a mentor, and progress tutor. We also employ a full-time nurse. Together, they’ll equip you with the tools you need to embrace new challenges and bounce-back from adversity.
