Premiership and Champions League football
Throughout the football season (September – June) we offer occasional trips to football grounds for Premiership and Champions League football matches.
During the summer especially, we offer half-day excursions.
Some examples are:
- Blenheim Palace
- Bicester Village
- BMW factory (home of the Mini)
Many of our afternoon activities are free to students, while others are low-cost. At Pub Night, for instance, the only cost is the price of a drink. Some activities require an admission ticket – for example, Laserquest, ice skating and bowling – but these are usually inexpensive. We always aim to make our activities as cheap as possible.
The full-day excursions are usually £20 - £28 per person. The 3-day and 4-day excursions are usually £69 - £125 per person. The Premiership and Champions League football matches range from £69 per person. For current and precise costs, please contact us.
There are a great many things to do in Oxford. There are around 35,000 students in the city and as a result all kinds of possibilities for entertainment exist.
- Cafes and restaurants (Cowley Road has restaurants from 36 different countries!)
- 5 cinemas (with at least 20 screens)
- 7 theatres
- More than 30 regular music venues
- Lots of bars, pubs and nightclubs
- Excellent shopping
Students are of course free to arrange their own activities and excursions alone or with school friends. Many students simply meet their friends for coffee, or at a pub in the evening; but others wish to travel further and to make their trips independently of the school. Long-stay students occasionally plan to travel in Europe at the end of their course.
We are always happy to help students make their own travel arrangements.
