Your best value gateway to University
Abacus College is an independent school situated in the beautiful and historic city of Oxford. Students come from all over the world to achieve their goal of gaining admission to British universities. We offer a wide range of courses to suit students aged from 14 upwards, regardless of their nationality, English language ability and educational background. Our classes are small, our tutors well-qualified and highly experienced, and every student is treated as an individual. Our programmes are highly flexible and can be adapted to meet the precise needs of each of our students.
We believe strongly in the importance of an all-round education. All our students are given a Personal Academic Tutor on arrival, and there is a full programme of Social, Personal, Cultural and Health Education. We organise a wide range of clubs, societies and activities and encourage all members of the college to participate. You can see photo-reports of recent college social activities in the Gallery.
All of our students move on to study the subjects of their choice at universities in Britain or elsewhere. Students are given advice on choosing a university and on the applications process by our experienced Higher Education Advisor (see Academic – University Advice).
I attended a Summer School course in Abacus College’s partner college, Oxford Language Centre, and loved it so much that I decided to sign up for a one year Business Foundation Programme in Abacus College. I couldn’t have made a better choice!
The staff at Abacus are all so friendly and supportive and always take the time to help you whenever you have a problem or need advice on something. I also love the fact that there is such a diverse range of nationalities here. It gives the college such a special atmosphere!
