English Courses in Oxford


At Eckersley School of English we deliver intensive English language courses in the heart of Oxford, England, a city with a rich heritage of cultural and academic achievement.  Students are taught in very small class sizes which creates a collaborative training environment with constant proximity to tutors.  This close tutorship feeds students’ curiosity and inspires them in the creation of their bi-lingual identity.

At the core of our courses is the Octorial Programme, a full-time English language course which includes 30 hours of tuition per week, taught in classes of no more than eight students. The Octorial Programme is academically rigorous, and allows students to make fast progress through a combination of language skills lessons, communication skills workshops and mentored independent study.

For students looking for a part-time option, Eckersley School of English offers the Essential Programme, which includes 20 hours of tuition per week and access to the school’s facilities outside of lesson times.

We also offer full-time preparation courses for English proficiency tests such as IELTS and Cambridge exams, including the B2 First (FCE) and C1 Advanced (CAE) exams, which include regular exam practice alongside an intensive academic programme.

For students with specific needs we are also able to offer the Enhanced Programme, which includes 25 hours of the Octorial programme plus 5 hours of individual tuition per week, or entirely One-to-One Lessons for up to 30 hours per week, where your personal tutor will tailor a programme to meet your exact requirements. These courses can include individual tuition for specific academic purposes, such as exam preparation or university admissions, or areas of professional specialisation such as English for law, medicine, finance, engineering, etc.

Programmes also include two cultural activities per week, allowing students to discover the rich history and culture of Oxford.
