Winter 2019: Oxford goes to Portugal
Clube Praia da Oura is located on the golden beach of Albufeira in the Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region, known for its stunning scenery and picturesque fishing towns. The Muthu Clube Praia da Oura is the second largest hotel in Portugal and offers a great social atmosphere and some of the best sea views in the Algarve. The resort provides two swimming pools, lush tropical gardens, sauna, restaurant, activities area, self-service launderette and sundeck. The vibrant town of Albufeira is only a short walk away. The Algarve offers a sunny and warm respite from the dreary climate of England during February and is the ideal venue for our Winter 2019 summit.
Accommodation and Food
All students and faculty advisors will be accommodated at the resort hotel in single ensuite rooms. Breakfast and lunch will be included every day beginning Monday (18 Feb) until Saturday (23 Feb). Breakfast will be included before checkout on Sunday (24 Feb).
All classes and seminars will take place at the resort business centre. Students will have access to their classroom as well as breakout rooms for group work during the project phase.
Students’ safety and welfare are very important to us. As such, we ask that they be accompanied by chaperones who will attend to their pastoral needs.
The local area is very safe, and the resort hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and cafés in the town, so students will have numerous dinner options available to them. There will also be some scheduled activity time for students to explore sports and cultural events nearby.
