Eton College | Ages 12 - 16
At Eton this summer study fascinating eras of history from medieval to early modern, as you learn how to analyse the past as a historian.
During the course you’ll take part in a group project where you will create a short documentary on how future generations will look back on the modern world, and you will develop key 21st-century skills, such as critical thinking, collaboration and problem-solving, required at undergraduate level and beyond.
There’s no better place to build your experience as a historian than at Eton College this summer.
To mark the end of the academic timetable each week, our students present research projects to the rest of the school in an event we call Time to Shine. These assignments are the pinnacle of the week’s work and present students with a chance to demonstrate their growth and learning, giving them the chance to practise their teamwork and public speaking abilities in front of a wider audience, gaining wonderful experience.
Time to Shine Project: Making a Modern History Documentary
How will future generations look at our modern times? In SBC at Eton College’s 10-hour History Time to Shine project, our history students will make a documentary short film about modern history. The short films will be shown in a special history documentary festival, as part of SBC at Eton College’s Time to Shine ceremony.

Despite the course’s high demands, our tutors have experience teaching mixed-ability classes. Our teachers can modify their approaches in accordance with the needs of our students based on the group’s English proficiency and capacity to retain new information.
Participants must have a minimum level of B1 to enrol on this course.
At the conclusion of the course, we hold a graduation ceremony where each student receives a certificate of completion.
Students are given a range of SBC handouts, all of which were produced by our in-house academic team.
Students should bring their own stationary, and are provided with notebooks and folders.
Although pre-reading is not required in advance of enrollment, it would be beneficial for students to keep working on their English if they are lacking confidence.
The quality of teachers, staff, academic program, social environment combined with an opportunity to be independent, all at a college of great repute made these two weeks a fantastic experience for our teenage daughter! We would highly recommend it.
