OXFORD, England, Feb. 10, 2016 /CNW/ -- Oxford Royale Academy (ORA) is delighted to announce that it has been named Best Educational Product at the prestigious British Youth Travel Awards 2015.
This year's achievement represents the fifth time in the last six years that ORA has secured the award. Founded in 2005, ORA has established itself as a market leader in high-quality academic programmes for international students aged 13+. Last summer, its ever-flourishing Oxford Summer School hosted students from almost 100 different nationalities and, with the registration count already hitting 74, ORA looks set to best this achievement in 2016.
The British Youth Travel Awards are hosted yearly by the British Educational Travel Association to reward and recognise outstanding educational providers, placing particular value on high standards of customer service and how well the needs of the individual are met. With more than 50 study options available, ORA prides itself on a high-calibre service for every student – something which has also been recognised by the British Council and the British Accreditation Council through their accreditations of ORA. Indeed, the Best Educational Product award is only the latest in a series of accolades acquired by the company in recent years, including the Queen's Award for Enterprise 2012 in recognition of ORA's notable international reach.
With preparations for 2016's summer school now well underway, ORA continues to demonstrate its commitment to global educational opportunity with free educational articles and the relaunch of its yearly scholarship programme: budding scholars from as far afield as America, Indonesia, and Pakistan undergo a rigorous selection process, with the very brightest receiving a maximum 100% reduction in their course fees. Prospective candidates are invited to register their interest here.
From Journalism to Environmental Science to a Film Academy for teens, students of all backgrounds and enthusiasms are guaranteed to find something to inspire them this summer. For the duration of their stay in Oxford they are housed in Oxford College accommodation; a rare opportunity to eat, sleep, and study just like an Oxford University undergraduate. A rich cultural and recreational programme of extra-curricular activities ensures students make friends and have fun during their time at Oxford – even the most hard-working scholar needs a holiday, after all.
