OSAP is keeping abreast of the Covid-19 situation in the UK in a robust way, and is regularly passing updates to our students and partner programmes.

US-UK Travel Advice

The UK Government’s policy is to follow the advice of the Chief Scientific Advisor and the Chief Medical Officer of England; accordingly, the UK has not banned flights or restricted travel to or from any country.

If you are an OSAP student affected by a travel ban, you will be able to stay in OSAP accommodation for as long as necessary (although you should check in with your home university regularly and follow their advice at all times). Indeed, some returning Trinity term students intend to stay in Oxford for the duration of the Easter Vacation.

Accordingly, no OSAP programmes have been cancelled, and all terms are scheduled to continue according to the details listed below:

Trinity Term 2020

All students enrolled for the Trinity Term have been contacted by OSAP with details regarding their Oxford accommodation (which is guaranteed), online tutorials and other flexible options. Should you have further queries, please contact [email protected].

Summer Terms 2020

OSAP offers three flexible Summer Terms beginning in May, June, or July, whereby students can apply to study for 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12 weeks (see this page for more details). Students accepted for an earlier summer term may defer to a later summer term at no additional cost, and without the need to reapply. Oxford accommodation will be provided for all Summer Term students who study in Oxford.

For those interested in experiencing the Oxford tutorial system remotely, OSAP is pleased to offer a range of online one-to-one tutorials with Oxford tutors, which are particularly well-suited to those students wishing to study a humanities subject. For more information on online tutorials, please contact [email protected].

Michaelmas Term 2020

The Michaelmas Term 2020 is scheduled to continue as normal, and online applications are open.

Hilary and Trinity Terms 2021

All OSAP programmes from the Hilary Term 2021 and beyond are scheduled to continue as normal, and online applications are open.

University of Oxford Guidance

Please consult this website, maintained and updated regularly by the University of Oxford, for useful coronavirus advice for University colleges, students, and staff.

Public Health England and the UK Government have published these guidelines for anyone in any setting, chief among which is covering one’s mouth when sneezing or coughing, disinfecting surfaces, and frequent and thorough hand-washing.

"The academic program was excellent. The OSAP administration was great. OSAP events were well planned, and it appears that OSAP gives us more privileges, access, etc. to the University than other programs."

"OSAP is the best academic study abroad program in Oxford."
