Oxford Business College have the expertise to design and deliver bespoke short courses for English and Business skills, tailored to the needs of an organisation. Whether young adults at 16+, graduates or professionals. Visit Oxford and take advantage of our teaching, accommodation, student support and social activities here in the education capital of the world. While many schools and colleges offer this as a summer school, why limit this opportunity when you can arrange a visit with your group at other times of the year.  Come and study in Oxford as part of our seasonal programme, and enjoy the charms of the city in Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring.


By the waterworks I beheld a perfect silhouette of Oxford against a white background: Tom Tower and St Mary’s spire, packed with many others in a black mass in the distance, deep snow covering the roofs around. The city seemed small enough to pick up in the hand. I felt like Gulliver in Lilliput.

With over thirty years of expertise in British education, the OBC team design, deliver and host a variety of Seasonal Schools, from English language programmes to visiting educational tours for graduates, trainees and employees.

At Oxford Business College, students always come first, and we provide bespoke packages based on the needs and budget of any organisation both UK and visiting from overseas. As part of our Winter School we also organise sessions teaching either English language or business- or why not combine the two?

Oxford Business College embraces students from all walks of life, such as MBA groups from India whose students benefitted from lectures and seminars from our experienced tutors, as well as our accommodation, and tours including the world famous BMW plant and Oxford University Colleges. From Malaysia we have welcomed visiting business executives for personalised packages of Oxford and London tours supported by lectures on UK business.

Closer to home, our tailor-made course for an Italian academy for students aged 16+ combines English language and business modules along with accommodation and a busy- and fun!- social programme.

These are just a few examples of the work we have done over the years, and we can’t wait to welcome your group to Oxford Business College and Oxford’s dreaming spires in the winter.
