This programme provided a great foundation, giving me the skills I needed for studying at university and helping me step by step with the process of choosing the right university.

 

-- Sammy from Canada

is currently studying at Reading University

As an international student my biggest concern was the language barrier. Whenever I asked a question, the teacher always answered patiently, which really increased my confidence. And when I made my applications to universities, my mentor always coordinated everything smoothly and swiftly.

 

-- Lijia from China

is currently enrolled at the University of Birmingham

I thought the first year in Britain would be a very difficult time, but the school days were fantastic for me. My teachers answered all my questions, gave advice and helped me with college applications. I also met friends from different countries on campus. Dormitories and schools are conveniently located in the same building so I didn’t have to worry about traffic jams. Overall, my English level has been greatly improved during the school year and I have been more integrated into life in the UK.

Physics

The Physics component of the programme is divided into Core Physics, Further Physics 1 and Further Physics 2. The aim of these three modules is to develop knowledge and understanding as well as an appreciation of the applications of physics and their importance to different fields of human activity. In Further Physics modules, there is also an emphasis on the development of skills in designing and executing experiments.

Core Mathematics

This course ensures that you have an appropriate level of mathematical knowledge and competence in order to progress on to the Advanced Maths courses in terms two and three.

Further Mathematics

Taken in the second and third terms, these modules build on the themes covered in the Core Mathematics module as well as introduce topics in Mechanics. For engineering students, they provide the foundation for further exploration in undergraduate studies in a range of subjects.

Core Chemistry

You'll be introduced to the fundamentals of physical, organic and inorganic chemistry. Starting with atomic structure and the arrangement of electrons in an atom, you will then move on to learn how to calculate amounts of substances and how to write formulae and balance equations. This core course also covers the main types of chemical bonding and structures.

Advanced Chemistry

In the second and third terms, you will build on the knowledge already obtained and gain a deeper understanding of the topics studied. Topics include energetics, rates of reaction and equilibria, as well as how to perform multi-step calculations. Modules also dive deeper into organic chemistry and additional functional groups of aromatic molecules. The Advanced Chemistry courses also give you a chance to develop your skills in planning, executing, and analysing practical investigations.

Computer Science

This module covers a wide range of topics including programming, databases, networks and web development. The course is practically based with a strong emphasis on applying what you're learning to real-life situations in different fields. You will also have the opportunity to complete a project which allows for more in-depth study of a chosen topic and helps to develop your research and analytical skills, which are important in order to succeed at a higher academic level.
