I did the 2018 Broadening Horizons Course through Oxford Royale Academy from 1st-14th July, and it was one of the best trips of my life! It was amazing to meet people from all across the world- from different cultures and backgrounds- and to share the experience with the numerous friends I made. The lessons were very interesting and the classroom environment was fun and relaxed. Activities such as punting and watching Mamma Mia in London made this trip unforgettable. Furthermore, the amazing ORA counsellors made this trip ten times as exciting, especially the counsellors at Queen's College. They really took care of us and made us feel right at home. By the end of the two weeks, we were all dreading going back home and wished that the trip could go on forever! I would recommend this trip to anyone who is considering applying- you will definitely not regret it.

I loved the experience I had at the summer course.
It allowed me to experience a 'pre-university' life, and it was amazing!
I have never made so many friends in such a short period of time.
I love the campus I stayed in, Lady Margaret Hall, especially the dining hall - it looked like the one from Harry Potter. I also really enjoyed sleeping in the dorms with my friends - and away from my parents for two weeks!
Oxford is such a beautiful place. The scenery and landscape and breathtaking, and the little houses are so pretty. I loved shopping in the streets as well.
This summer was probably the best summer ever, and truly one of the best experiences I've ever had.
Thank you so much Oxford Royal Academy for these memories!

P.S. it would mean the world to me receive this ORA hoody!

How can this program be improved?
Everything was absolutely fantastic, I just wished it lasted a little longer! I would love to be at the course for more than 2 weeks - maybe a week longer, so a 3-week course?

Applying to ORA was the best decision I have made so far. ORA showed me the opportunities that I actually have outside Serbia. This experience was life changing! I got to meet so many amazing people from all of the world, with different experiences and knowledge. Everything that I have seen, heard and learnt and everyone I have met while being in ORA helped me realize something about myself and my future career.

An Oxford Royale Academy experience is an once-in-a lifetime, unforgettable and international experience, YES!
Let me tell you why.
All of the courses, the teachers, the truly international students, the afternoon activities (punting, scavenger hunts, quiz nights or even the world cup at my time during summer 2018) were exceptional.
Concerning the courses, the way of teaching using class discussions, group work, even homework, was fascinating and engaging. Nevertheless, I learned, once at Oxford, that courses at ORA aren't all about theoretical work but were also about practice. In both my courses, we did hands-on experiences : iodine clock reaction in Chemistry (which was real fun) and not less than the dissection of a heart in Medical Biology!
I knew most of the things we were going to do at Oxford. But what I didn't know, and couldn't know, was the feeling I was going to get once there: happiness, feeling of achievement and a great will to do more, 2 weeks in a real world of opportunities. But also a little bit of nervousness! Why not ? This is because you want to do good, you want to achieve and frankly everything you do at ORA is rewarding, I myself won the scavenger hunt with my team, got excellent grades (A* in both courses) and even an effort price in Chemistry at graduation. You really do feel great at ORA.
I am far from sugar-coating anything, I would truly recommend ORA experience to anyone who has the chance to do so.

I had an excellent and impressive time in the Queen's college! There were staffs and students from various cultures all around the world, and I really enjoyed being with them. I appreciate all the help I received during the academic courses, social activities and in other time I spent in this lovely place. It was really convenient living in Queen's since it's on the High st., where all kinds of shops and restaurants stands on both sides. Thank you so much for providing me with great experience!
