The prime aspiration for the venture is to prepare students for the perceived inevitable migration overseas. Increasingly, students are intending to study, work, and live in countries other than their homeland, so that cultural and practical integration into the new environment needs to be established more quickly and effectively for the longer term commitment. The course is of 13 days' duration, and comprises a rich and intensive mix of learning and experience. This is focused on an Oxford venue, and especially Oxford University during term-time. It includes English tuition each morning. The programme includes visits to London, Cambridge, Bath, Stonehenge, and includes ballet and museums. Accommodation and breakfasts are in an Oxford college, lunches in a different Oxford college and evening meals in a different Oxford restaurant each evening. There are meetings with Oxford graduates and undergraduates and the students work in small groups towards final projects that culminate in oral presentations supported with audio-visual aids.
