Summer Revision & Introductory Courses

Course Details

The summer holidays provide the perfect opportunity for students to attend Summer Courses, keeping their studies active, in a fun learning environment.  Attending a Summer Course with Oxford Science Studies gives students the chance to start the new academic year in the best possible way.  Students may revise material covered in the previous year, and gain an insight into the fresh material that they will encounter upon their return to school.  Although the main focus is academic, our residential courses include an evening entertainment programme, including various social activities for students to enjoy.

The Benefits

  • Help with all levels, be that GCSE, IGCSE, IB or A Level
  • Create a bespoke timetable, selecting the specific subjects to suit your needs, with the chance to focus on both subject content from the previous year and year ahead, depending on the subject requirements
  • Spend time with expert, experienced tutors in a friendly and relaxed learning environment at a glorious campus location
  • Fit revision in around your holiday plans, selecting dates to suit you
  • Small group tuition, with a maximum of 6 students timetabled per class
  • A great way to get a head start, especially useful when moving from GCSE or IGCSE to IB or A Level, where the difference in content and knowledge required can be substantial
"She said that this was one of her best holiday weeks. The teaching she said was just simply amazing, on another level. I can’t thank you guys enough, not only did she enjoy and understand chemistry but she felt that she was part of a unique group of students all with the same purpose."

The Timetable

Please see the below example timetable, demonstrating a one week revision course.  Students may select three subjects per week.

Our trusted teach and test method allows students to review subject content, working through new or existing content with our expert tutors, then putting their learning into practice via exam style questions during the independent exam practice.  This method allows students to confirm their understanding, identify any other trouble areas ahead of the exams, and gain experience answering the type of questions that will feature in the exam.  This all happens in an environment that provides them with support and feedback, aiming to build their confidence.  

We believe that a 50 minute tutorial is optimum for concentration and our timetable provides sufficient breaks to ensure that students remain refreshed, throughout the day and ready for learning.  Following the course, our expert tutors complete detailed feedback reports.

For residential students, our Summer Course also includes an Evening Entertainment Programme.  Complete with extracurricular activities to allow students the opportunity to have some relaxation time, as well as to work on personal development, interacting with new people and building friendships.
