20th - 24th and 27th - 31st July 2020

Students have the option of studying one of nine subject strands in an engaging and high achieving academic environment, whilst experiencing a taste of university life during the day and evening. Each subject strand has been created to give a taste of the subject at Imperial College London and is designed to stretch the capability of every student on the course. The workshops feature a series of practical investigations provided by College staff, supported by current undergraduate mentors. All subject content is aimed at year 1 undergraduate standard and teaching is provided in the same style as it is to university undergraduates. In addition, College staff will be present to provide information and guidance and answer questions regarding the University applications process and finances.

At the end of the week, students in small groups will present a concept they learned during the week in an academic style conference to a panel of judges as well as their peers, strand leaders and invited guests.
