OGSYL aims to bring together some of the brightest young minds from around the world to participate in its twice-annual summits. Students will be assigned to one of four ‘colleges’, which are intended to represent the college system at the University of Oxford itself, and will collaborate on projects and activities that complement their seminars and lectures. In the unique environment that is created, we hope to inspire and motivate the leaders of tomorrow through their interactions with some of the greatest mentors of today. Over the course of 7 days, students are invited to apply their intellect to the most salient issues in our society. The resulting transformation, from a group of bright, talented individuals into a team of critical thinking analytical problem-solvers, is nothing less than extraordinary.
During this experience, individuals will:
- Network with ambitious and high-achieving peers from across the globe
- Attend guest lectures on relevant topics such as AI, big data, social enterprise, and innovation
- Attain certificates of completion for their courses
- Receive mentorship from leaders with a variety of backgrounds, including doctors, engineers, entrepreneurs, lawyers, business executives, and University of Oxford professors
High achieving students will be invited to Oxford in the summer to further their studies and engage with an even wider network of mentors and professors.
Why OGSYL is different. Our students’ success matters to us not just while they are in our programme but also beyond. As such, our mentor relations do not cease at the end of the 7 days. For our top performing students, we will offer them continued support towards their University application process as well as letters of recommendation toward their future endeavours for up to one year.
