British Study Centres BSC Oxford


Study in the historic district of St Giles, in the center of Oxford, England


The Company's origins date back to the 1930s when the Cleaver family founded it.

In the early days, British Study Centres (BSC) concentrated on correspondence courses and as such was a precursor to the Open University who grew up in the 1960s. The Company overgrew, establishing offices and examination centres across the entire (then) British Empire and beyond and in the process becoming the UK's largest group of correspondence colleges.

Today, BSC specialises in the delivery of high-quality English language training to adults and young learners, teacher training courses for the UK and overseas teachers and University Pathway programmes.

When you choose BSC Oxford you will be studying in the historic St Giles District right in the heart of Oxford.

With large, spacious classrooms, a comfortable student lounge and a rooftop terrace, this is a great location to learn English.

The Cornmarket with all its shops and cafés is just 50 metres away, and it’s just a short walk to the famous Ashmolean Museum.
