Welcome from Lucy Marten, Director of Studies:

Welcome to ASE!

Whether you choose to study in England for a semester, a full year, or just for the summer, ASE promises to offer you a challenging and unique educational experience, encouraging you to develop your academic skills and to widen your range of scholarly and cultural interests.

During the Autumn and Spring semesters, our regular courses are taught from Monday to Thursday in small seminar groups, with a maximum of 13 students. Our tutors are all carefully selected and highly-qualified. Many of them hail from Oxford University, and all are committed to our ideals of combining high teaching standards with personal involvement in students' academic goals. We also offer Tutorials, where teaching takes place singly or in pairs, an Education Programme, and a range of Internships.

The ASE Summer School operates in a slightly different fashion, with seminar and core courses taught each day from Monday to Thursday, and a maximum class size of 15. Click here to read more.

I am on hand at Nelson House, the ASE study centre, to ensure you are supported academically throughout your stay, and to offer advice on your next steps after you leave ASE. Perhaps you will follow in the footsteps of former ASE students and return to England to take a higher degree at Oxford, in London or Bristol? Or maybe to train as a teacher in an English school? Perhaps your studies in Bath will influence your choice of career or graduate school? So many opportunities will beckon as a consequence of your time with us.

I look forward very much to meeting you.
