LONDON SCHOLASTICA 2020

Explore your future this summer on our London Summer School

EXPERIENCE LONDON WITH OUR

2020 LONDON SUMMER SCHOOL

London is a city steeped in history. You can watch a play in Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, admire the Queen’s official residence at Buckingham Palace, or visit the ancient Palace of Westminster, seat of the British government for the past 1000 years.

But London doesn’t look backwards. Today, it’s home to scientists, musicians, bankers, lawyers, journalists and fashion designers. From start-ups in Shoreditch to think tanks in Westminster and research institutes in Bloomsbury, this is a city on the cutting-edge.

Experience the excitement of London on our academic summer courses for 12-18 year olds. You’ll explore your subject with our expert tutors, going beyond the classroom with our university-style teaching and practical, interactive approach, to see for yourself what it’s like to study your subject at University level. Along the way, you’ll make friends from around the world, experience independence, and immerse yourself in the UK’s dynamic capital city, for the most memorable summer of your life.

9 STUDENTS OUT OF 10 HAD ONE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE SUMMERS OF THEIR LIFE

10

10 OUT OF 10 PARENTS SAID THEY WOULD RECOMMEND THE SCHOLASTICA EXPERIENCE

“Definitely the most memorable and exciting experience I’ve ever had in my life. I took a course in International Relations and I learned from a global perspective. I met people from all over the world, such as Romania, Russia, Australia, Dubai, and the UK. As a Southern Californian, it really took me out of the bubble that is where I live – it was amazing to come in contact with so many cultures. 10/10 would do again.”

EXPERIENCE A DIFFERENT WAY OF LEARNING

We’ve designed our courses to be as engaging and hands-on as possible, mirroring the style of teaching you can expect at University.

The courses follow our Learn, See and Do philosophy, so you will not only learn the theory behind your subject in our inspirational Classes, but you’ll also see it in action in your Hero session, and put it into practice in your Challenge.

EXPERIENCE INTERNATIONAL FRIENDSHIP

Last summer, 85 nationalities were represented at Scholastica. You’ll be exposed to opinions, cultures and experiences that may be different from your own, and you’ll gain a new, global perspective on world issues.

Our students leave the summer school with friends from all over the world, and have often travelled to visit each others’ homes after the summer school – Scholastica reunions have taken place in Cairo, Brussels and Sydney!

EXPERIENCE CONFIDENCE

We often hear that Scholastica students return home after their time on the summer school more motivated in their studies and more confident in their approach to their futures. We hope that by giving you the skills and knowledge you’ll need to succeed, you’ll feel more confident in taking risks and expanding your comfort zone. You’ll also develop your communication skills and a sense of independence.

EXPERIENCE THE UK

Londoners tend to think that London is the centre of the world and the only place worth visiting. But you’ll have the chance to decide for yourself, as we’ll go on day trips to Oxford (to see the world-famous University) and Brighton (a classic British seaside resort, and the favourite retreat of Queen Victoria) to see more of what the UK has to offer.
