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 and interview skills.

In week two you will take part in a team project working together with students from other streams to solve a real-world challenge. Led by Imperial College Advanced Hackspace, the group challenge allows students to understand Imperial’s ethos of entrepreneurship, teamwork and the desire to find practical solutions to real-world issues.
