People come to Oxford from all corners of the globe to learn all manner of subjects, so it's no surprise that the city and its surrounding area has an impressive range of specialists offering to teach you almost anything, whether it's martial arts or how to go into business illustrating children's books. Here is a selection of subjects:
Art, Textiles and Creative Subjects • Business • Common Entrance •
Continuing Education (leisure courses, adult education and Further Education) •
Film, Video & Photography • Food & Drink • Foreign Languages • Garden Design •
Massage • Mediaeval Studies • Music • Summer Camps • TEFL courses •
Theatre/Drama • IT / Digital Skills • Online resources
For more art and craft courses in Oxfordshire, see Daily Info's Art and Craft Classes listings and www.craftcourses.com.
For establishments offering Common Entrance see our Tutorial Colleges page. Most tutorial colleges and tutoring companies listed on that page will offer specialist coaching for 11+ and 13+ as long as they tutor that age group.
See also City & Guilds, who offer a vast number of qualifications for professional, vocational and leisure learning. The website isn't the easiest to use, but perhaps that's because it's offering so many things via so many different providers. There are providers in Oxfordshire for some, but not all, courses.
For individual local tutors, see Daily Info's Tuition small ads, where you can place an ad seeking or offering language teaching, or requesting a language swap which needn't cost anything (except perhaps a cup of coffee).

These days many universities offer their lectures available online and free, or in some cases
specially-written courses. If you have a bit of time to spare and want to pick up some extra skills,
for professional or leisure purposes, they can be an absolutely excellent resource.
FutureLearn is a very good all-round provider, offering hundreds of topics from lots and lots of different academic institutions, with good online learning support. It has a fairly strong European/Australian focus.
Coursera and EdX offer similar things but mainly from American Universities. We don't have particular knowledge of Coursera, but have made use of EdX's computer science teaching and rate it highly.
