These are just a few of the messages we have received from people who have studied at OISC recently or their parents and counsellors:
“Mia arrived home last night, tired but very happy. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for everything you have done to help Mia acclimated into her 4 weeks’ life in Oxford. She came home excited and starting telling me all the things she did and people she met in Oxford, most of all the kindness you’ve shown in helping her.
This is a most valuable experience for Mia and students alike, in their academic studies, social and emotional development. The pictures and brochures she brought home reminded me just too well why I love UK life so much. She is of course talking about which Colleges she will apply to and is looking more and more toward UK.
Again, with my most sincere gratitude I thank you both and wish you a very pleasant summer and look forward to speaking to you both when we return to Oxford sometime, or if you ever travel to this side of the continent please do not hesitate to contact me, I would be honored to reciprocate the kindness you’ve shown to my daughter.”

"Awesome atmosphere to study in. All of the tutors were awesome (yes, really!) - I enjoyed being at OISC, and will treasure my memories here forever! I hope I can meet you again!"

"I just wanted to inform you that Eri was so happy about her lessons on Monday, and she couldn't stop telling us how great and useful they were when she came back! She said because the lessons were so well organised, she could concentrate and enjoy the whole time, even though it was quite a long session and she normally finds it difficult to work for long hours without breaks. Thank you!"
Akiko, international agent.
"Please thank all your tutors for their inspiration, encouragement and support of Edward. He was very happy at OISC and he was made to feel welcome right from the outset. The one-to-one tuition and adult environment totally suited his learning style."

I really enjoyed the time in Oxford. I appreciated the way we studied ,and people could discuss their points of view. So it is a pity that I only studied here for three weeks. Thank you for your class…I really improved my English skills there. I need to study hard in my IB School…”
