ECSP was genuinely fantastic…I have left the Programme with a bunch of bright friends from all over the globe, and eagerly anticipate seeing where my research takes me next.Björn, the University of St Andrews
The Exeter College Summer Programme exceeded expectations. I left Oxford feeling not like a tourist or visiting student, but like a true member of Exeter College.Sydney, Northeastern University
The six-week Summer Programme at Exeter College, Oxford is a unique opportunity to experience undergraduate life at the oldest university in the English-speaking world.
Our aim is to challenge and inspire you through engagement with Oxford’s world-class reputation for academic excellence. Over the summer, we will give you an authentic experience of undergraduate collegiate life and invite you to share in Exeter’s distinguished 700-year history with a talented and diverse cohort of students from around the world.
Uniquely among Oxford Colleges, Exeter has two campuses – the ancient Turl Street site, home since 1315 with its beautiful gardens, historic chapel, Jacobean Dining Hall, and extensive library; and the Cohen Quadrangle, completed in 2016 with its inspired architecture, en suite accommodation, and state-of-the-art facilities. Turl Street and Cohen Quadrangle offer ancient and modern interpretations of the collegiate model of communal living and cross-disciplinary learning. We will welcome you into both campuses to enjoy the best of both worlds and an immersive experience of Oxford academic and cultural life.
I would highly recommend the ECSP if you are looking for a summer experience that combines study for credit at a top university, cultural enrichment in a beautiful city, and a diverse group of people. The excellent professors and tutors, and the close-knit lecture-seminar-tutorial style of teaching was the highlight for me. What’s more, there is time on this program for travel and have fun as the Program Ambassadors organise some fantastic activities.Amy, Harvard University
