Testimonial 1

‘I went to Riyadh as an Oxmedica tutor for two consecutive years to teach Physics and Rocket Science to the female programme when I was a PhD student. It was an amazing opportunity and experience. The students are lovely and eager to learn, the local team is incredibly welcoming and helpful and the team at Oxmedica are some of the most competent and professional people I’ve worked with. My students still get in touch every now and then and I’ve become really good friends with some of the tutors. It was a great experience from a personal growth perspective and made me a much better communicator and confident presenter. It’s also a great opportunity to visit a country and explore a city with such a rich culture.’
