All meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) are taken in the college dinning hall and areincluded in the course fee. Great facilities, a central location, and the friendly atmosphere ofWycliffe Hall make Oxford Regis a great place to study and make new friends this summer.English LanguageAt Oxford Regis we welcome both English learners and improvers and our English LanguageCourse is desined for non-native speakers of English. The dedicated English Languagecourse is taught in small-groups and focuses on two main areas: listening and speaking,with an emphasis on confidence in spoken English. English idioms are studied as part oflistening exercises and pronunciation is practiced with native English speakers as part of ourspeaking practice. By the end of the course students should have “found their feet” and willfind it “plain sailing” to correctly pronounce “sheep” and “ship”. Practice with native speakersis the key to using the English language fluently and correctly.University PreparationThis course is designed for students hoping to apply to Oxford or Cambridge Universities,or anyone thinking of applying to a UK university. The course aims to explain the processof applying to a UK university, guide students in their choices and application, and buildconfidence in a university setting. The course does not intend to repeatedly drill studentswith answers for their Oxbridge interview, but instead informs the student and builds theirconfidence. The course covers the following aspects: subject choice and career choice,college choice, application procedure, personal statement, and interview preparation.Business & EconomicsThe course covers the keys aspects of microeconomics, macroeconomics and businessprinciples. These ideas are strongly re-enforced with numerous real-life case studies ofwell-known businesses and brands. Key components of the syllabus include: markets,production, cost, efficiency, supply & demand, market failure, growth & business cycle.During case studies, students have the opportunity to tackle real-life business problemsand present their solutions to the class by taking on the role of an external consultant.

  3. 3. OXFORD REGISSTUDENT INFORMATIONTeam BuildingTeam building activities draws on individual and team learning, in order to teach valuablelife skills. Learning to manage change, work in a team, good communication, and gettingthe job done properly and on time are skills needed in all aspects of life. The team buildingworkshop aims to teach these skills with a number of group activities that require all ofthese skills combined. Team building tasks teach students the importance of teamwork, butalso show how to analyse a problem and constructively solve it.Leadership & ManagementThe easiest way to distinguish between leadership and management is that managementis mostly about processes, whereas leadership is mostly about behaviour. We aim to teachstudents good management, while growing and encouraging personal leadership andconfidence. This workshop covers key aspects of organisation, leading, motivation, andpositive reinforcement. Case studies are used as a tool for students to develop and testeffective management strategies. Numerous group activities and practical problems areused to develop leadership, teamwork, problem solving skills and confidence.Public Speaking & DebateThis course is designed to build students confidence in public speaking and being the focusof a groups attention. This work is consolidated by listening to some of the most famousspeakers and speeches of the past 100 years and analysing their qualities. Practical workto build the student’s confidence include reading unfamiliar text out loud to a group,preparing and presenting a speech and taking part in class debate competitions. Debatetopics may range from topics such as ‘school hours are not long enough’, to ‘do violent videogames and movies have a negative effect on children?’.Cultural Activities And TripsAll cultural activities and day-trips are included in the course fee, as well as a full social programme.Cultural Activities (10+ hours) Social Programme (10+ hours) Day Trips (2 full days)Ashmolean Museum Tour of Oxford London TripUniversity Botanical Gardens Evening Quizzes Blenheim Palace TripCroquet in Oxford Sport in Oxford University ParksOxford University Museum Afternoon TeaPunting on the River Thames Oxford Castle TourLondon TripLondon is one of the great cities of the world, full of world famous attractions.
