London Summer CoursesAt the London Scholastica Academy, we have carefully curated a selection of inspirational courses for 12-14 year olds and 15-18 year olds which take place in the UK's capital city.
Based in the UK’s dynamic capital city, our summer programmes are designed to give you the chance to further your understanding of your subject, and also give you a taster of what it’s like to study your subject at university. The courses aim to give you further clarity about your future educational journey and to equip you with the skills you’ll need to get there.
You’ll be taught each day in small groups by our expert tutors, and you’ll also take responsibility for completing some independent study work, guided by your tutor. Many of our tutors teach in the UK’s top Universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and the University of London, and they’re all passionate and knowledgeable about their subjects. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to meet our Heroes – inspirational young professionals in your field – who can answer your questions about how they got to where they are today.
Alongside this, you will get to make the most of all the opportunities London has to offer, including cultural experiences, day trips around the UK, and the chance to meet like-minded students from around the world.
Be taught by our experienced tutors, in small classes and masterclasses.
Meet our inspirational Heroes and see your subject in action.
