Explore the ancient city of Oxford and experience its rich academic heritage with a Gap Year programme at Greene’s College.

All of our Gap Year programmes use the tutorial method of teaching, which will allow you to sit down with experts in their field to discuss, debate, and dissect topics that interest you. The tutorial method is the definitive teaching model of Oxford and Cambridge universities, encouraging students to engage with their subjects and teachers in a way that no other teaching method can replicate.

A Gap Year programme at Greene’s will usually include multiple weekly tutorials in three or four subjects of your choice, along with a weekly meeting with your designated academic mentor, who will encourage you to reflect on your learning experience, as well as help you improve your study skills. You can also choose to participate in our Research Explored course, which is designed to equip students with the writing and researching skills that you’ll need to excel at university.

What did you enjoy about your Gap Year at Greene's?

Everything. Every single tutorial has been exactly what I wanted and a bit more. I was initially interested in the tutorial system and found that it was exactly what I was looking for as a reintroduction to academia.
– Winslow, Gap Year student 2022.

“There’s been a little highlight every day. Greene’s has lived up to my expectations. This experience has been really wonderfully. The tutors are great, the other students are very friendly and welcoming. It’s a very good community.”


– Frances, Gap year student, 2024

Greene’s students are also allowed to take out temporary membership to the oldest student-led debating society – The Oxford Union. The Union is the world’s most famous debating society, with a reputation for bringing international guests and speakers to Oxford. Greene’s gap year students can obtain membership to the Oxford Union and attend high-profile debates. All members can also study and borrow from its world-famous Library too.

Located in the heart of Oxford, Greene’s College Oxford will provide you with an unparalleled academic experience while giving you the opportunity to explore this ancient city’s many galleries, museums, colleges, and walks. And, as Oxford is only about an hour away from London, it will allow you easy access to the U.K.’s capital city.
