Adult Summer Programme

Start: August 1 End: August 24

‘On the 11th of August we had the second social activity of our summer programme, a city and university walking tour of Oxford! The students had the chance to discover the gems of this beautiful city and its prestigious University.

It was a beautiful sunny day and Oxford was bustling with many tourists around. We started the tour at Carfax tower, nowadays the geographic centre of the city, heading first to the covered market, one of the oldest covered markets in England, which can boast beautiful independent shops and cafes.

After that we headed towards the heart of the university, looking at some of the old colleges and at the Sheldonian Theatre. We had a coffee break at Weston Library where the students could look at the 2 exhibitions, Tutankhamun and Sensational Books, discovering items like the Magna Carta and the 1st Folio by William Shakespeare.

In the second part of the tour we visited the Divinity School, the oldest teaching and examination room in Oxford, and other famous landmarks like the Radcliffe Camera and the University Church before finishing our walk at Christ Church, the biggest college in Oxford. After collecting our lunches from the Story Museum we enjoyed a nice picnic in Christ Church Meadow near the river Thames!’

    «...I not only consider EMBS a college - I also see it as my family.... »

    «I arrived in this country four months ago, without any confidence in my English and really scared to be an independent person at sixteen. I didn't know what my next steps were since the education in my country is really different. One day, my aunt bought me to EMBS. At the beginning I was really insecure as I didn't even know how to use the bus and get there, it made me feel like a child surrounded by grown up people that didn’t understand me at all. Ever since I started to study here, everything negative that I used to feel has changed completely. I’ve got to meet amazing people like Jo and Jane, who took care of me and were concerned about my future. I’ve also got to make amazing friends like Aisha and Abner that always make me laugh and feel positive about life. Of course, this is not the only thing that the EMBS has given me: they also are deeply involved in my education and they help me in any way possible to achieve my purpose, which is go to university and study human rights. If I am being honest, I not only consider EMBS a college - I also see it as my family. »


    «...I really enjoyed my time at EMBS, meeting so many different people and making lots of fun and happy memories.... »

    «Before I came to EMBS I was very shy and often felt very awkward to start conversations with people around me, I never spoke unless I was spoken to but after a few months of being here I gained confidence and was able to communicate with other people comfortably, made good friends and feel like I knew myself. I really enjoyed my time at EMBS, meeting so many different people and making lots of fun and happy memories.»

    «Before I came to EMBS I was very shy and not confident, I used to be very afraid to speak English outside of college. But after several months, EMBS helped me to gain more confidence and especially improve my spoken and written English. The staff are really nice and friendly.»
