Academic Development



This is to give you a broad understanding of the sciences. These sessions will be tutorials, which give you the chance to follow particular interests and areas of enthusiasm, as well as the opportunity to discuss your weekly assignments. In the second term, you will focus on applied and pure mathematics, although students can choose to continue attend Physics lessons alongside their other courses.  Students will also have the opportunity to pursue their own interests by completing their own project in the final term. 

Entrance Requirements:
