Brasenose College, Oxford University
(OASP – Oxford summer school)
Oxford University is the oldest university in the English-speaking world and remains an internationally-renowned centre of learning. Today, Oxford is a vibrant, modern city with stunning medieval architecture. The university continues to attract the brightest students and most eminent academics from across the world.
Brasenose College enjoys the best location of any Oxford University College with the entrance to the Old Quad on Radcliffe Square next to the Bodleian Library. Brasenose College was founded in 1509 and over the years it has been home to many famous students from author William Golding to the current British Prime Minister, David Cameron. It is the perfect location to host OASP, our Oxford summer school.
Bucksmore students eat in the main college dining hall in Brasenose College. The classrooms, student bedrooms and social area are a short walk away in the Frewin Court annexe of Brasenose. The residential campus provides an historic, yet relaxed and peaceful environment. Secure and self-contained, it gives students a taste of life as an Oxford undergraduate. It also provides a unique and inspiring summer experience.
Each student has a comfortable single bedroom. The Frewin Court annexe is situated next to the historic Oxford Union, the world-famous student debating club. It consists of good-sized rooms which are well-appointed and built around a central grassy area. It is a safe and quiet residence, whilst being within yards of the centre of the city. In addition to student rooms, there is a pleasant common room area with a TV and games for evening leisure time.
Students attending this Oxford summer school can visit a number of fantastic attractions, from the Radcliffe Camera to the Ashmolean Museum, or simply enjoy a more casual afternoon punting down the River Cherwell with their new friends.
