STEM can be quite challenging, mainly because students are required to apply numerous theories and ideas; however, with the assistance of SBC STEM tutors, we can make STEM much more accessible.
Even though STEM is quite a rigorous subject, our tutors can modify the course’s content based on the students’ overall English proficiency and capacity for learning new material. At SBC none of our aspiring STEMicians are ever left behind in the classroom, which is something we take great pride in.
To make the most out of this course, students need a level of B1 or higher. Before the summer, your Admissions Manager will send your child(ren) an online placement test to complete. This will help us to ensure that this course is suitable for your child to participate in and benefit from.
At our graduation party, every student receives a certificate of completion to celebrate their achievements.
Our in-house academic team has produced a variety of SBC handouts that are distributed to students.
Notebooks and folders are given, however each student must bring their own pen to participate in class.
Students may be glad to hear that there is no pre-reading necessary for the course, however it would be helpful for students to continue practising their English to feel even more super confident.
My son was extremely happy about this experience. He enjoyed the campus life and all the activities. He met new friends from different countries with different cultures and he was able, thanks to the staff, to really have fun with all of them. He improved his English and his knowledge of English culture. GREAT!!! This experience was magic! A journey around the world!
