Studying Outside the UK

Welcome to Oxford Home Schooling

Where can I study from?

It is possible to study any of Oxford Home Schooling’s courses from anywhere in the world. However, some courses are easier to study from abroad than others and some restrictions to the type of tuition available apply.

What tuition do I receive whilst I am abroad?

You still get the same level of access to your tutor that any UK-based Oxford Home Schooling student enjoys. So our tutors will still mark your assignments and respond to your written enquiries. Our tutors will telephone most European countries, the USA and Australia. If you require telephone contact from any other country, please contact a Student Adviser on 01865 798022. Please consider the time differential when phoning your tutors. If you wish to communicate with your tutor by email, please discuss this with your Student Adviser when you apply and they will ensure you get a tutor with email facilities.

Where can I take my examination?

lf you wish to study for a GCSE or A Level qualification, you will need to sit the examination in the UK. Please remember that most GCSEs and A Levels have several examinations which may well be spread over several weeks. IGCSE examinations, on the other hand, can be taken at test centres all over the world.  Oxford Home Schooling students follow Edexcel IGCSE specifications, and sit their examinations in Edexcel test centres.  You can find your nearest test centre on the Edexcel International website.  Our exams officer will be able to help you register for your IGCSE exam.  The IGCSE (International General Certificate of Education) is widely recognised by universities and colleges world-wide, and provides an excellent preparation for study at A Level.  Please see our IGCSE pages for further details of subjects and examinations. IGCSE examinations do not include coursework.

If you are studying from abroad, please discuss your examination options with your Student Adviser when you apply.

Will there be extra delivery costs?

The price of delivery to the UK mainland is included in our course fees. However, students who live outside of the UK may be required to pay an extra fee for International deliveries. Please discuss the cost of delivery with your Student Adviser prior to enrolling on your course.
