I guess SBC has given me a new perspective on life. Before coming here, I would say I assumed a lot of things. I stereotyped people and after coming here, it really broadened my horizons. I’ve met a lot of new people, gained a lot of new insights…and I guess it has made me a better version of myself.

Why Should You Study With Summer Boarding Courses?

One of the UK’s Most Multi-National Summer School Providers
We believe all cultures around the world should be united through education. Last year, students joined us from 101 different countries.

A British Council Inspection Report Score of 15 out of 15
We are the UK’s first and only multi-centre summer school to achieve 15 out of 15 Areas of Strength in a British Council Inspection report.

Exciting Academic Courses at Prestigious Venues
Our students have the opportunity to study a wide range of academic courses in some of the world’s most famous schools and university colleges. Our prestigious campus locations include Eton College, Oxford University, and Cambridge University.

I think the application process makes you stop, slow down a little bit and think about your life. Think about your experiences, about your extracurricular activities…about the impact you make on your community. The questions are all related to your extracurricular activities, SBC wants to know if you have an impact on your community. I think the part of making the video …was really awesome because I had never done it before, so it was a new experience and I learned a lot about it.
