Download and Complete the application form FE1 for the 4-day Excursion.

Your application needs to be accompanied by a signed, academic recommendation (or reference letter) from one of your professors or advisors certifying your suitability for the Summer School. Before you arrange this, check whether your home institution has a partnership arrangement with St Peter's College and will send this on your behalf; or whether you need to arrange and send the recommendation yourself. The recommendation should be on your institutional letterhead and can either be mailed as soon as possible after an electronic application, or accompany an electronic application if it is available in electronic format.


Email all these as attachments to: or mail to: Marilyn Addison, Summer School Administrator, St Peter's College, New Inn Hall Street, Oxford OX1 2DL, UK.

Most of our partner universities assist in the selection, application and registration of students and some also manage the transfer of funds to Oxford on their behalf. The professor encouraging your application or your university’s Study Abroad office, International Office, or equivalent will advise you.

Successful applicants, leading to the Offer of a Place, will be notified as soon as possible, and, by the very latest, 1st April 2018. Later applications might be considered if there are still places available.

Your Place is secured by payment of a non-refundable deposit of £1,995 which should be paid as soon as possible after you receive the 'Offer of a Place' and no later than 21 April 2018. Deposits are credited in full against the fee for the Course. Payment of the remainder (including the supplementary charge for the Four-day Field Excursion, if applicable) is due by 20th May 2018, six weeks prior to the start of the Summer School.

Schedule of Applications & Payments:

The deposit is not refundable under any circumstances once a student has been accepted on a Course.
