The Oxford English Centre

School Overview

The Oxford English Centre was established in 1979. We are an independent school and not part of a chain. We offer high quality courses in magnificent premises, close to the centre of Oxford, an historic and world famous centre for learning where students have been coming to study for over 800 years. The school is equipped with light, spacious classrooms, a multi media centre with listening and DVD facilities; interactive whiteboards; computers with language learning software and Internet access ; a school restaurant; garden terrace and pleasant grounds.

The Oxford English Centre offers courses throughout the year with an experienced and dedicated teaching staff, several of whom have undertaken specialist training in Business English. There is a good nationality mix with clients from more than 70 countries following courses during the year.


"I was a student at the Oxford English Centre in May 2015 for a General English course and I had the best time ever here. All the staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. Lessons have never been boring, always just funny and interesting. I can only recommend this place to people who wanna meet new friends, have fun and learn more." - Karolina, Czech Republic.

"I have been studying on the General English Course for 5 months. I started in Intermediate class, and now I’m in the Advanced class. I think I improved a lot! Also, the teachers in the Oxford English Centre are amazing. They are really friendly, we are like a big family! I think I found my new family here." - Hyojin, South Korea.

About Oxford

In the “city of dreaming spires”, academia takes centre stage. Gaze out at Oxford’s world-famous colleges from the top of St Mary’s Church tower before heading into the city’s pedestrian-friendly streets. The University’s Botanic Garden and Ashmolean Museum are Britain’s oldest. Follow your nose to the Covered Market for the makings of a picnic to enjoy on a punt or in the University Parks. Mix the historic and modern with visits to the 12th- century village church of Iffley and trendy Cowley’s ethnic shops and music venues.
