About Us

Oxford International Study Centre (OISC) is a private tutorial college and language school based in the heart of Oxford, UK, with a reputation for excellence in delivering a range of language, academic, and corporate training programmes at all academic levels. OISC was established in 2006, and senior management had occupied similar posts in two other international Colleges before that date.

OISC is located on St Aldates, in the very centre of Oxford, between Christ Church and the Town Hall. The study centre occupies a beautiful and historic building, with many original features, and houses 10 classrooms, as well as office space, common rooms, and private study areas. In fact, it’s the lovely red building you can see in the beautiful watercolour painting of St Aldates above, by our friend, local artist Katherine Shock.

The quality of education and training is first rate: we have been awarded the highest grade (‘exceeds expectations’) at every inspection in the last ten years by the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate (ISI). The quality of training and education offered by OISC is further attested to by a wide range of accreditations and professional memberships.
