The Oxbridge Summer Academy was established by Emma Zaman, who has worked in education for more than 10 years. After successfully coordinating a number of summer schools, Emma noticed that there was a lack of summer schools that catered to students who wanted to enhance not only their learning but their way of thinking. So, she created the Oxbridge Summer Academy to explore the subjects that she was most passionate about, but in a way that would develop the critical skills that are essential to educational development.
The Oxbridge Summer Academy is a global company with extensive links to Asia and the Middle East specifically Bangladesh and the United Arab Emirates. We aim to provide students in these countries with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to continue their education in a western country.
Most of our UK based partners are from Oxford or Cambridge University and are practicing teachers with qualified teacher status and extensive experience of teaching in UK classrooms. You can be sure that all of our extremely successful course advisors at the Oxbridge Summer Academy are the best in their fields of work.
