Short courses and summer courses
Short courses and summer courses before starting your undergraduate degree
There are many reasons why people want to apply for a unique ‘study experience’ or a ‘short course’ prior to commencing your undergraduate degree. Both help you develop your skills and knowledge, which will place you in a strong position when applying for your degree.
Completing a short course from a few weeks to 6 months may be right for you. You may wish to undertake a course in your chosen field to put you in a great position on commencing your studies. Or you might want to learn a new language or develop your study skills prior to commencing your undergraduate degree. Of course there is also the option to study a short course or summer course in something completely different. Many universities look favorably on candidates who have a varied academic interest.

Unique study experiences
One of the other motivations you may have for wanting to do a short course or summer course, could be to get a unique study experience abroad. Developing your skills and insight into the world. This could be about going to experience a different culture, to see a part of the world that is new to you. To open your eyes to a new experience that might change how you view the world. What could this be?
For example if you wanted to study in India and see how people live and work in a completely different culture and work environment. We can help arrange an amazing cultural immersion programme for you as an individual or for a group of students. This could be for any amount of time from two weeks upwards. The experience can be tailored to your interests and learning needs. It might involve looking at how multinational companies operate in a developing country. Or attending lectures and workshops in a subject of your interest. It can also involve travelling around the country and combining your time out there with learning new skills and attending lectures.
There are many options out there for you which will place you both in a great position for your undergraduate university application and to give you new skills to succeed in your studies. We can help you find the right study experience for you.
