About the Courses
Courses are structured according to the educational model of Oxford and Cambridge. They are designed for students with a very high level of English or for native speakers, including U.S. students. At the beginning of the course, students take a proficiency exam and, based on their results, are grouped with a few other students. Guided by professors from one of the two prestigious universities, each student will choose two topics from the ones available, in order to perfect their knowledge and abilities.

• Master Class: each week, students will have the opportunity to develop key personal skills. In Oxford and Cambridge, students attend workshops focused on Leadership, Problem Solving & Critical Thinking, Pitching & Presenting and Negotiating. In London, students attend Public Speaking, Time Management, Debating and Negotiation workshops. These skills will be essential during their future academic studies and careers. Upon request, students can enrol in the SAT or IELTS training courses, for 2 hours per week. Activities for IELTS include writing skills, while SAT activities include writing, reading and math. The programme helps students improve their learning abilities.

• Cambridge Course: students will attend classes focused on International Politics and Relationships, International Business Administration, Micro- and Macroeconomics, Psychology, Creative Writing, Architecture, Contemporary Literature, Social Studies, Applied Engineering, Physics of the World, Chemistry, Medicine, Mathematics, Marketing and Advertising.

• Additional Courses at Oxford and Cambridge: in addition to school activities, students will attend creative workshops and can choose a new field every two weeks. After taking part in three courses, students present their project at the end of the second weeks. The following topics are available:

  • Entrepreneurship: students will learn to create a business plan for a product or service that could turn into a business.
  • Journalism: a team of students compiles and edits articles to make a magazine about memorable moments from the course.
  • Film Creation (Oxford and Cambridge): students learn basic techniques for making a short film, the topic of which is also chosen by them.
  • Theatre (Cambridge): no previous experience needed, only enthusiasm and creative thinking. Seminars range from Shakespeare to improvisation.
  • Debates: students will learn to build coherent arguments and participate in a formal debate.
