ORA was a great experience. Over the summer I met people from all around the world and still am in contact with them months after. The Teachers and Staff were kind but also make sure everybody was safe and happy. I have been to camps with sports and activity, but this combines both learning and sports. It was great and was one of the best experience. I would recommend it to everyone how wants a good time.

i really enjoyed the 2 week course. i learned a lot about economics and politics. there is a huge range of subjects to choose from so everybody will find their cup of tea. the staff and the professors are very nice and thoughtful. i was in st. peters college and my room was very good. i had more than enough space to relax, do my homework and feel like at home. my only complain is that the food wasn´t very good.

How can this program be improved?
The only thing i would improve is the quality of the food.

I had a great time in my Broadening Horizons course. It was a great opportunity to explore academic fields and to make friendships with people from all over the world. The location was very historical and central which allowed for easy transportation. The academic growth I obtained through this course was very rewarding and beneficial. It also exposed me to many fields and let me know which ones I like and which ones I dislike. The staff was considerate and would do their best to help anyone who had a complication, they were also approachable and did not alienate themselves from the students. On the academic side, I was shown what I am lacking and where and how I can improve the quality of my work. In conclusion, it was an experience which helped me enhance my academic skills and give me a taste of what university life could be like.

How can this program be improved?
The main improvements in my case would be the quality of the food of the campus I was staying at, and the number of people in my course. This is because the food in the college was mediocre, and my course had around 20 students, which is quite a small number and I understand that most courses have well over 60 students per session.

Being able to attend the New Perspectives program with Oxford Royale Academy is the best experience that has happened in my life so far 💯💯. The most satisfactory part of the courses I chose is that I did my best and in the end it paid off.
One thing I was looking forward to, was the social activities that I had seen on the ORA blog and they most definitely did not disappoint (the Friday night party was THE best). 🔥🔥 The absolute best part of this new experience was meeting and making friends from literally all over the world. Meeting new people exposed me to different cultures, ways of thinking, and this enhanced my knowledge of the outside world, but also showed me how big and diverse it really is.
I had read before going to ORA that during the two week stay, that I would most likely make friends for life. However, I did not take that to be true. After the end of the two weeks, I was devastated to leave my new-found friends.
I think ORA is a great program that exposes people to the world in a very good way. It gives people the opportunity to gain knowledge first-hand on the different cultures present and be able to share their culture also. The courses given are practical and very useful, especially if you have not taken the course(s) in school yet.
If you're contemplating participating in Oxford Royale Academy, DO IT! ORA is the G.O.A.T AND IS THE WAY TO GO!!!

Although I was privileged to visit Sweden and Spain I the same summer, my stay at the ORA developed into the highlight. Before the course started I had some expectations, which built on other summer school experiences, but ORA was by far the best. For me it would have been enough to have the opportunity talking to people from many different nations. The international atmosphere and the interesting characters I have met will never be forgotten. As well as the community spirit or the fun I have had, just by enjoying board games or playing football. In my opinion this trip was worth every penny. 9/10👍🏼
