The program offers three-week classes for students to earn college credit
WASHINGTON, D.C. – April 6, 2022 – WorldStrides, the leader in educational travel and experiences, has partnered with Oxford’s Oriel College to offer university students from around the world an exciting educational experience at their historic campus in Oxford, England.
Designed to provide students a condensed study abroad experience, the Summer Institute will offer students three two-week sessions to choose from, and it allows them the flexibility to select the duration and courses that best meet their goals and time constraints.
“The program is built to give students back the time they have lost on campus the past two years during the pandemic and still offer a high-caliber study abroad experience at a world-class institution,” said Brian DeMoss, head of higher education marketing at WorldStrides. “We want to provide students with options to travel this summer and these courses are fun, intense two-week courses to gain credits while enjoying the summer in Oxford and nearby London.”
The programs are two weeks in length, and students will earn three credits per two-week session. Students will live in the Oriel College at Oxford dorms while being immersed in the culture of the historical city of Oxford, which is just an hour outside of London. The curriculum includes diverse course offerings such as artificial intelligence, modern philosophy, entrepreneurship in the 21st century, Shakespeare and shifting economic policies. The deadline to apply is April 20, 2022.
