The Nord Anglia Summer Leadership Academy is a unique opportunity for your child to hone their leadership, debating and negotiation skills while also experiencing student life at one the world’s preeminent learning institutions, the University of Oxford.
We invite children from age 16 – 18 years old to join us at the alma mater of three former British prime ministers, Balliol College, from July 31- August 13 to experience diplomacy in action. Whether your child is looking to advance their public speaking skills or build their understanding of current global issues, our inspirational programme will equip them with knowledge and key transferable skills to support their success in school, university and their future careers.
Students will participate in leadership development activities, lectures by prominent scholars, and excursions around Oxford and London to learn about politics, history and economics. The two week programme will culminate in a final symposium modeled on the 2015 Paris Climate Change Conference, which will challenge your child to work with other students to develop effective solutions for real-world problems and prepare them to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Students at Balliol College will also provide advice and guidance on the Oxford application process to help your child take the next step in their academic career.
Space is limited so please submit your applications early!
