Many young people are capable of exceptional academic, personal and commercial success, but they are simply not able to access opportunities which may be available to them, according to Oxford Royale Academy (ORA), a leading provider of summer schools at some of the world’s most prestigious institutions, who have welcomed thousands of students over the past 15 years, from over 135 nations. —
Competition for top university places is more intense than ever and the younger generation are facing an eye-watering choice of careers and an ever-broadening definition of success. And the technology-driven economy has opened opportunities for entrepreneurs which, as recently as 20 years ago, many of us would never have believed were possible.
In order to put young people on the road to success, and to help them understand the opportunities which are available to them, education must offer more than traditional learning. Varied cultural experiences, broad global networks, awareness of the plethora of available avenues of study and careers – and vitally, guidance and direction – all help young minds to discover their strengths, indulge their passions, and to carve a strong and successful path in life.
ORA’s summer schools deliver exactly this, offering over 150 courses, all designed to help young people gain confidence, experience and a competitive edge. Young people are individually guided to discover their futures and to achieve their ambitions by outstanding teaching staff in some of the most prestigious universities. Depending on the course they select, they can experience life in an Oxford University college, visit some of the most heritage-rich locations in the United Kingdom, taste a degree in medicine, build a kit-car or explore AI and blockchain, whilst always working with peers from around the globe.
William Humphreys, founder of ORA and himself an Oxford University graduate, firmly believes that a traditional education is not enough to succeed in today’s competive world. William says, ‘By offering young people a taste of elite higher education, multi-cultural experiences and innovative subject matter, such as AI, blockchain – or even building a Caterham – we can help them to identify their strengths, passions and ambitions. And often, they will grasp new opportunities, which they would never have believed that they could access or achieve. I can personally attest to the value of this approach - as we take enormous pride in the success of our students, many of whom have gone on to study at some of the world’s top universities, such as Oxford and Cambridge Universities, Imperial College London and Princeton.
