Choose from a range of fascinating courses, all designed and delivered by expert academics working at the cutting edge of modern research, and all taught using Oxford’s world-renowned tutorial system.

Our exciting courses span the breadth of the academic spectrum from engineering and biomedicine to the humanities and social sciences. You may wish to learn about Oxford’s life-saving Covid-19 vaccine or apply computer programming skills to game development, assess a postcolonial reading of Shakespeare or explore the geopolitical ramifications of climate change. Whichever course you choose, your LMH Summer Programme will offer you the opportunity to grow your knowledge base, to advance your skills in your chosen area of study, and to dig deep into topics of special interest.

Every course is taught using the tutorial system, the core teaching model of the University of Oxford, in which you engage in rigorous academic discussion with your tutor as part of a very small class of only two or three students. In these weekly classes you present and discuss your work, accept constructive criticism, and listen and engage with the work of your fellow students.

By joining an LMH Summer Programme and learning in this open and exhilarating intellectual environment you will not only gain new knowledge and deeper understanding, but also develop your critical reasoning skills and emerge empowered to articulate, debate, and defend your ideas.
