Is getting into oxford summer school a big thing?Watch
I think I only know one person who’s been on a summer school, so I wouldn’t say it’s standard to go to one, I was under the impression that they were pretty competitive to get into
what's the whole point of summer schools?what kind of students attend it?the country i live in does not offer summer programs and since it' third world country international unis are considered one of the bests.I was over the moon when i got to know that i got in oxford summer school since i've been dreaming of getting into harvard or any international uni in general so felt like maybe this brought me 1 step closer to my dream.
Usually it’s the more academic students wanting to go to a top university, but also for widening participation for those from disadvantaged backgrounds (low family income, been in foster care, students of minority ethnicities etc.)
Either way though - these are things that are not open to everyone and it would be unlikely to form a big part of any uni applications process. Maybe the US as they're nuts, but nowhere sensible.
