Online Courses for Refugees

As part of our vision of Learning without Limits, we have carefully designed a range of online courses for refugees and displaced people in the UK.

Our Commitment

Access to education provides greater opportunities for success for individuals and communities worldwide. Here at OI Digital Institute (part of the Oxford International Education Group family), we recognise our role as education providers in bridging the gap for as many people as possible, including those displaced by the Ukrainian war. 

Our response to this is to offer free courses delivered fully online. The courses cover English preparation for life in the UK and English for business. Our highly qualified English teachers teach the classes and are delivered fully online, making them easily accessible from any smartphone or laptop.  

Course Structure

  • Courses are 4-weeks 
  • Three lessons per week 
  • Each lesson is one hour 
  • Held Monday, Wednesday and Friday
  • Each week is a standalone topic, so students are able to join a course every Monday
