Oxford Summer Courses (OSC) was established in January 2010 by its two directors, both Oxford graduates, who wished to provide opportunities for others to experience aspects of life at Oxford University. Courses are provided in a wide variety of subjects (business, economics, history, sciences, humanities, law, literature, mathematics, creative writing, medicine, philosophy, politics, psychology, classical civilisation and international relations) for students aged 16-24. Courses are offered in two week units, although a small number of students compose a four week course from two sequential courses. All students receive individual tutorials in a chosen subject (with the possibility, therefore of tailoring teaching to their specific interests and needs) complemented by small group seminars (maximum of six students) in those subjects.
