Trip to Oxford, 3rd to 4th March. Includes TedTalks ticket, ghost tour, one overnight, breakfast, dinner on Saturday, coach or train ticket to Oxford. £160.
Before booking this trip, please check you know the content of this trip before you book. We will spend most of Sunday at TedX and this is mainly for people who like to listen to and discuss interesting and sometimes unusual ideas. We will do a short tour of the colleges on Saturday, you will have most of the day and evening to explore alone. The trip may be suitable for our older students. More info here: TedTalks
TEDxOxford is an annual independently organised TED event. The day-conference brings together individuals who will hear from a collection of the world’s most interesting and remarkable minds. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At our TEDxOxford event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
This ancient seat of learning holds many dark secrets. Oxford’s streets have played host to agony and horror, torment and terror. Morbid phantoms of the past stalk shadowy recesses in colleges, condemned to rehearse their lamentable ordeals for all time. The ‘Dreaming Spires’ is a place of nightmares.
The Ghost Walk is an unsettling journey through the bleakest moments in University history…

Set in a world very like our own, this Romeo and Juliet is about a generation of young people born into violence and ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents.

For many exchange students this is not the first time in London. You may have been before with your parents or on a school trip. No wonder…London is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Many have already seen the usual attractions. You are no longer just a tourist, you will be living here and we can encourage you to see it that way. Rather than taking you places you may have been before and will certainly have an opportunity to visit another time, we want you to leave our capital city feeling like you know your way around well enough to come back, either during the year or with your parents at the end. During the day, we will focus on helping you learn how to use the transport system and also get a feeling for how different areas of London are connected. Our second priority during the time here is to show you a couple of things you couldn’t see alone. We will be spending time with you in the evening and letting you get a feeling for London at night. Of course, we will also be sharing our knowledge of the city and making sure you know about the sights and attractions.
We are currently holding tickets for the musical ‘Wicked’ and the special event ‘Beauty and the Feast’.
