Think critically and work in teams to find solutions to real-world problems. Your English tuition will be provided by Stafford House.

Course Information

Course Overview

Participants will take part in lectures, workshops and science-based English lessons as well as visits to local places of relevant interest. Lectures will cover subjects such as a physics masterclass and will also feature guest lecturers. Potential workshops include topics such as Lego Robotics, rockets and combustion and coding. Students will also take part in practical lab-work demonstrations to put the theory into practice. Visit destinations may include the Science Museum, National Space Centre or Bletchley Park. English lessons will develop each of the four skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing as well as knowledge of scientific vocabulary and grammar necessary to present their final projects in appropriate English.

Programme Outcomes
