My name is Christoph Steinert and I am excited to be a Politics and International Relations tutor in 2017 at Oxbridge International Summer School. I’m a MPhil student in International Relations here in Oxford. I studied my undergraduate degree at the University of Mannheim in Germany and at the Trinity College in Dublin. My research focus lies in the area of conflict research and I’m particular interested in post-conflict environments. Right now I’m writing my dissertation about different post-conflict justice processes such as trials, amnesties, truth commissions, etc. and I investigate their effectiveness in bringing stability to conflict-torn societies. For the dissertation I will also make fieldwork in Colombia. Besides my studyings, I work in Oxford in a research project from the Oxford Institute of Ethics, Violence and Armed Conflict.
Apart from the professional stuff, I love sports (in particular football, skiing, runing, and climbing), live music, reading and travelling around the world! I’m sure we will have a great time together and I’m already looking forward to meeting you in the Oxbridge Summer School (and if you have not already, apply now)
"Thank you! Noah truly had an incredible experience, academically, socially and culturally. We know how powerful it was for him when we saw the tears in his eyes as we were pulling out of the train station."
- Jon, Father of Noah, Molecular Medicine
"The tutorials were amazing. My tutor was friendly, passionate, knowledgeable and engaging and the material was very, very interesting."
"I would recommend this summer school to anyone looking for an exciting, intellectual and transformative summer experience."
Eden, English Literature
"Looking back on this wonderful experience I'd say it provided me a solid insight into university life, as well as the subject of Engineering. I really recommend OISS for people who are looking forward to meeting people from all over the world, working hard and playing hard too!"
"I took pleasure in learning new things and approaching the subject of history from what was an entirely new perspective for me… I will never forget those two weeks and how every day… was filled with excitement."
- Sophie, History
"I am excited to inform you that I have been accepted to Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service with the major of International Economics! I’m so thankful for my experiences at the summer school. One of my college essays was actually based on my experiences there."
- Christina, Economics
"The summer school was a “life changer” for Brett…Had Brett NOT attended the OISS he would not be where he is today or have the vision for attending university in the UK, including the academic requirements. His exposure to teenagers from across the globe at Oxford had a profound influence on him and really opened his eyes to what was possible."
- John, Father of Brett, Economics
"It gave me an insight into university life and the style of learning at university. It was brilliant, really fun and educational at the same time."
- Kirsten, Engineering
