Oxford Royale Academy is delighted to be offering a number of scholarships and bursaries for the Oxford Gap Year programme (17-19).
Named after Thomas Garner, the leading architect who restored Yarnton Manor to its full glory in the late 19th century, these scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and financial need, as well as the strength of the student’s personal statement, to deserving applicants from all over the world.
It was thanks to the work and skill of Thomas Garner that Yarnton Manor is such a beautiful place to live and learn today, so we have chosen to remember him in the naming of this scholarship award. With this scholarship, we seek to widen the pool of students who can benefit from our courses and encourage the diversity of cultures and backgrounds that make ORA courses so unique.

The Oxford Gap Year (17-19) runs on the dates provided in the table above. While the standard cost of these courses is 13,995 GBP including tuition, accommodation and meals, scholars can receive up to a 50% reduction in their course fees.
This is a fully residential programme based in Oxford Royale’s historic International Study Centre, combining a stimulating range of tutorials, lectures, guided research, excursions, cultural activities and more.
