University Pathways


These courses perfect for students preparing for university, taking a break during their studies, or taking a course before starting their career

Your choice between Study Abroad or Preparation for University

St Clare’s offers a first-class education and cultural experience exclusively for adult students who are looking for:

  • a Gap Year course between finishing school and starting university
  • a preparation course for students who want to apply to a university that requires certain academic results and a specific level of English
  • a Study Abroad semester for students at US universities who want to be challenged in class and transfer credits to their home university
  • an English course to develop their English language skills after university but before they start their career

For many students, their time in Oxford is a truly life-changing experience and all value the internationalism, the opportunity to progress from one course to another, and the benefits for their future — at university, in their career, and for life.
