About us

Oxford Summer Courses was founded by a network of Oxford alumni, who were determined to share the magic of the university and the city with the wider world. Since 2010, we have expanded around the world, and are one of the fastest growing education companies in the UK and Europe. Our pedagogical approach is centered around interactive and creative teaching strategies, growth mindsets, small group and tutorial teaching, integration of cutting-edge research, and—above all—tutor autonomy.

About the role

Our London programme offers project-based learning courses to international students aged 15 to 17. We give students the opportunity to engage practically, critically and creatively with real-world problems, with the aim of equipping them with skills and tools essential to success in the future. Whilst the students will be grouped by their chosen subject, we have designed the programme in a way that reflects the interdependent character of London, and all groups will work around one of two overarching themes; Notting Hill Carnival or Transport for London.

As a Subject Teacher, you will prepare and deliver one (or more!) of our two-week courses in your specialist area. You’ll develop a syllabus outline including taught elements, visits to relevant London locations, and the overall project your students will be working towards. At the end of the course, students will present their final project to a panel of industry experts and receive feedback.
