Our residential summer schools are open to international students aged 14-18. For the academic subject classes, we hold seminar-style lessons with a small group of students, so teachers are able to tailor the classes to individual students needs and provide extra support where required. The teaching is designed to bridge the gap between school and university, to build on existing knowledge and introduce students to completely different topics, hands-on activities and ideas.
We will also ask each student to write a personal statement to better understand (a) their motivation and objectives in attending the program and (b) their academic background and aspirations for the future. This will help ensure our course teachers can tailor the academic experience appropriately. If we feel it is necessary, we may also ask for a copy of a student’s latest school transcript.
