A personal journey

The bespoke nature of our summer school programme makes it the ideal springboard for students to explore and decide on their future destinations. Each student’s goals are as unique as they are, and their summer school experience will reflect that.

Students may choose a route with a focus on the English language, aided by external excursions and a spotlight on British culture. Alternatively, looking ahead with a goal of reaching Oxbridge, a GCSE student may target admission support and interview practice and a look at the practical skills needed for a life away from home. 

Two and three-week courses provide flexible options for students. Our offering allows participants the chance to choose a route that fits the uniqueness of the individual.
