A bridge to UK academic life

This programme includes practical content which gives you a smooth transition into UK academic life. Examples of areas covered include:

  • English language development
  • Maths enrichment
  • Information Computer Technology
  • General academic enhancement
  • Art
  • Scientific Investigation
  • Humanities
  • Business

The course can also include a Maths GCSE if you need it to progress to university.

Please note:

  • Students starting in January or April will need to sit a Maths baseline test to check suitability
  • GCSE Maths alongside Extended Programme is not available in Kings Oxford. Students can study in Kings Bournemouth and then transfer to Kings Oxford.
I think the most important thing is to keep on practising your English skills. You really have to participate in seminars.
