Oxford Summer College is a two week university preparation course held in the heart of Oxford at Somerville College.

We offer a challenging P&E course for students who may, or may not have studied politics or economics before.

Our political and economic institutions determine the way our societies are organized. Students on the P&E course learn about key economic concepts such as, supply and demand, market structure and the role of finance. Students also explore the often troubled relationship between economics and politics and investigate political regimes in different nations.

The course gives students vital practice in debating issues where there is no correct answer, and teach students how to apply academic learning to real world situations.
