When a student arrives, an SBC staff member wearing a bright yellow t-shirt will be waiting to greet her/him and accompany them to our Welcome Club. At our Airport Welcome Club, she/he will have the chance to meet other students arriving, have some light refreshments and relax. After a little rest, students will be accompanied by students and SBC staff to board the coach and be taken directly to the school in a private coach.
The Shared Transfer Service can be used by students using the following flight and train times:
Flight lands on arrival day: 06:00-17:00
Flight take-off time on departure day: 08:00-18:00
The times outlined above also apply to students arriving and departing from Kings Cross St. Pancras train station.
If you book a flight outside of these times or to/from another UK airport, we can look at sending a staff member in a taxi to collect or drop off your child, but it will cost more than the Shared Transfer Service. Quotes are available upon request.
If you book a train or flight outside of these times or from another London airport, please contact your Admissions Manager for a private taxi quote. Please note this will cost more than our Shared Transfer Service from Heathrow, Kings Cross St. Pancras (& Gatwick for Earlscliffe students)
Flights must be booked on the arrival and departure dates so that all students can arrive and depart the course at the correct times.
STEM focuses on the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Yes. Although we don’t focus on medicine in any detail in STEM specifically, unlike in Medicine or our Future Doctors courses at Headington, Cambridge and Eton.
Yes. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs create opportunities to many different careers, including opportunities in engineering, science, and research. STEM professionals can explore a variety of fields from aeronautics to biochemistry.
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!
