Global Summer School’s academic programme is structured into two parts. In week one you will join a learning stream - either Engineering, Medicine and Life Sciences, or Physical Sciences – and attend a range of focused sessions delivered by Imperial faculty members.
In week two you will take part in a STEM project, working together with students from other streams to solve a real-world challenge.
The programme is typically taught on weekdays from 09.30 to 16.30, including one hour for lunch.
Week one: Academic streams
You will develop academically and personally as you are inspired, challenged and supported throughout the programme by our experienced academics, researchers, Summer School leaders and mentors. There will be lots of opportunities to ask questions and discuss thoughts in classes and seminars.
Week two: STEM challenge
In week two, you will come together with students from other streams to share what you have learnt so far and help to solve a real-world challenge that our society faces today. You will have the opportunity to develop vital skills you will need at university, like presenting, communication and group work, whilst working on a project that combines aspects from all three academic streams.
You will have the chance to attend our masterclasses to prepare you for the university application process in the UK. Topics may include:
- How to apply to a UK university
- How to write a personal statement
- Interview skills
You will receive occasional updates, via email, about our Global Summer School and alerts to when applications open.
