OGSYL Introduction

Oxford Global Summit for Young Leaders is organized by Oxford Global, an institution consisting of a group of students and alumni of the University of Oxford, promoting equal access to high-quality educational conferences and summits. The team hails from all over the globe and consists of scientists, engineers, linguists, lawyers, classicists, philosophers, and economists. Each year 6,700 young people from over 40 countries around the world participate in educational conferences and summits organized by Oxford Global. They are the organizer of Oxford MUN conference as well.

Oxford Global Summit for Young Leaders is a unique international educational event aimed at developing the skills required to become future leaders and innovative thinkers. We believe it's hard for ambitious youth to find important challenges to work on, become passionate about, and dedicate themselves to. As such, we teach the skills, provide mentors and guidance, and create a collaborative environment to help young leaders tackle the pressing challenges of tomorrow. During the 8 days, students will be immersed in a program of keynote speeches, lectures and workshops designed to motivate and stimulate students from across the disciplines to become critical thinkers.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the Oxford Global Summit for Young Leaders was held each summer on the campus of the University of Oxford, and since 2020 has been held online. ASDAN China reached a strategic cooperation with Oxford Global in 2022. Oxford Global work with ASDAN China to select outstanding young Chinese students for the summit and provide them with the opportunity to forge leadership and develop a global perspective.

6 Popular Academic Topics(Select One)

Economics

Virtual economies and currencies: economics for the 21st century

Cryptocurrencies, NFTs, algorithm... The advent of the internet has brought a whole new dimension to economics, which has created interest and apprehension in the markets. Join us in this course exploring the limits and possibilities of virtual economies, the digitalisation of assets and money, and how they relate to more established parts of our international economic system.

Mathematics

Math modeling for real life problems

Budgets, volcanic eruptions, and the collision of whales into ships. What do all these things have in common? There are mathematical models to understand and find solutions for them. In this course, students will learn how to construct and apply mathematical modelling to problems and develop an understanding of this extremely useful tool.

Computer Science

The era of machine learning

We often hear a lot about artificial intelligence, robots, and the future of technology. In this course, you will learn about machine learning, which can be defined as the capability of machines to imitate human behavior. Through discussions on modeling, programming and ethics, this course will introduce you to new ideas in computer science. No programming knowledge is required.

Analytical Chemistry

Elemental World

Join us in exploring the elements that make up our world. In this course, you will learn more about analytical chemistry – by understanding how to quantify, separate and identify matter. These methods and analyses are part of some of the cutting-edge research being done nowadays, such as DNA sequencing, chip manufacturing and nanotechnology.

Biomedicine

Brain matters: an introduction to neuroscience

This course is designed to give you a basic understanding of the tenets of neuroscience, the science behind the nervous system. Through this course, you will learn about how processes such as learning, memory and behavior are being studied in the brain, and all the ways in which this discipline challenges and innovates the field of biomedical science.

Psychology

The attention economy: psychology of social media

We use social media everyday - from Myspace to TikTok, the field has been part of our lives since the early 2000s and has grown with the advent of smartphones. But do we know how it works, why do we enjoy it so much? In this course, we explore biological, cognitive and behavioral concepts of psychology by looking at social media, understanding why it's so compelling and how it relates to us.

Academic Structure

Stream Sessions(50%)

The summit offers 6 academic areas for delegates to choose from. Each academic area will be led by a Stream Leader who is experienced in teaching at University of Oxford, and who may also invite experts in the field to share some of the content as guest lecturers. The lectures are mainly conducted in the form of small group lectures, and after the lecture program, there will be several rounds of group discussions to ensure the students' digestion of the knowledge.

The depth and difficulty of the academic content of the summit is basically at the Oxford undergraduate level. The delegates will receive the academic materials of the corresponding disciplines before the start of the program. In contrast, the academic tutors will assign academic tasks to the students for pre/review every day to ensure the progress of the academic lectures. Stream Sessions is based on the Oxford classical teaching model.

Project Tutoring(20%)

The tutorial system originated from Oxford University in the 14th century. Since its inception, it has been regarded as one of the most effective and valuable teaching systems and has been described as the 'jewel in the crown' of British education. Tutorial teaching allows you the freedom to push yourself academically and direct your own learning. OGSYL offers stream tutorials to students in all academic areas. Students will break into small teams of 2-3, each team will be assigned a research topic based on the content of the Stream Leader, and the topic will be the final presentation. Each stream leader will lead 2-3 project tutors who will challenge and help students with their outcomes, like the Oxford tutorial session. Each academic team will have daily one-on-one communication with the Project Tutor to ensure their research process.

Joint Sessions(15%)

We provide academic workshops that develops five essential academic skills that support the success of participants in their further studies.

  • Oxbridge application: This guide will take you through the key elements of Oxbridge admissions, and help you maximize your chances of success.
  • Academic writing: How to efficiently complete a qualified essay that meets undergraduate academic standards?
  • How to do research: This workshop is designed to develop research skills. How to conduct academic research using research-based learning methods at university?
  • Academic Presentation: Facing the high frequency of academic presentation, how to combine academic content and presentation skills to give a fabulous academic presentation.
  • The art of problem-solving: Developing skills that are integral to an Oxbridge application. Demonstrate problem-solving skills in your daily expression can help you show your unique strengths to admissions officers in the admission interview!

*Some topics are subject to change. Final topics will be decided by Oxford Global and Stream Leader

Final Presentation(10%)

The summit is oriented towards completing a project work at the undergraduate level with a problem-solving learning model. The stream leader can give research directions that will be linked with his/her taught content on the first day. Final presentation within each stream by small teams to stream leaders and project tutor. Stream leader gives out awards to the top 2-3 teams in each stream. The best projects will be invited to contribute to the academic journal of the summit.

Office Hour(5%)

1 hour each day, each stream leaves one project tutor behind to help students with their questions on the taught content.
