UK Residential Projects

Since May 2013 we have been offering students of all ages from around the world the wonderful opportunity to travel to Oxford and do a project with us in the UK.

Staying in trusted and friendly host families and experiencing first-hand the heart of English culture and tradition, our UK residential projects are a wonderful way to assimilate the English way of life, improve language and communication skills with English lessons and drama workshops, perform a theatre show in English, and have lots of fun!

A typical week will include:

- Host family accommodation with full-board (packed lunches)
- Return airport transfer with ‘meet and greet’ service
- 10 hours of General English lessons
- 12 hours of drama workshops, including final performance
- A welcome pack, teaching material, certificate and final written report
- A guided tour of Oxford
- 1 full-day excursion to London
- 1 half-day excursion to Stratford Upon-Avon (Shakespeare’s home-town)
- Full cultural and recreational activity programme, including entrance fees and transport
- One professional theatre show in London or Oxford

Group leaders are provided with single-room host family accommodation and come for free with every 15 students travelling to us.



“When I first heard about the OWT project in Oxford, I knew that it was going to change my life. January and February 2013 were weird and mysterious months for me and the theatre project in Oxford was exactly what I needed. I needed this to find myself, to express my feelings. I think that these kind of projects help people not only be involved in theatre, but also to find some treasures in their souls and I am grateful to Daniel and the Oxford World Theatre team for making it possible.”

“I took part in OWT residential projects in Oxford twice. Both times it was an absolutely unforgettable experience! In six days with a fantastic bunch of students and teachers of English we managed to stage wonderful performances devised by ourselves and become quite confident actors knowing how to use the space, access the emotional profile of our characters and get our message across to the audience. As participants, we couldn’t imagine that we’d be able to climb up that high. The journey was immensely enjoyable! Those six days didn’t only give us plenty of English language practice, but also revealed new depths in our personalities, taught us to trust ourselves more and believe in our own abilities and talent.”
