Cultural and Language Immersion

Thank you for your interest. The application period is over.


  1. Living in an English-speaking environment
    Have you ever thought about living with an English-speaking host family or with local students on a beautiful campus such as the Hertford College of the University of Oxford? Through daily interaction, you can improve your English communication skills and learn about local culture and life-style firsthand.
  2. Language activity sessions
    Structured classes offer English language training at various levels. Using the latest pedagogical approaches, well-trained instructors lead courses in the four skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. In addition, there is a focus on content-based learning, which enables you to apply your English to discipline specific areas of study.
  3. Community and research project work
    Under the supervision of staff from partner universities, you will be engaged in community or research projects that involve contact with the local community. While gaining practical skills from working on the project, you will gain insights into the lives of local residents and learn and practise specific vocabulary.
  4. Cultural excursions and social activities
    You will experience authentic cultural aspects of your host country when you pay visits to places of interest and participate in cultural events. You will also have opportunities to be in contact with other international students and local community members during social gatherings in your spare time.
