Courses

Bucksmore Summer programme
The course is only available for booking in the following dates:
From 14 to 17 years old 10 students per class 1 lesson — 45 minutes

The syllabus incorporates language study, language for life, London experience lessons, project sessions, excursion link lessons and academic skills sessions.

The language study lessons focus on the communicative style of language learning and provide grammar and vocabulary tailored to a student’s ability. Whereas language for life lessons integrate a wider range of topics including learner training, literacy, culture and life skills.

The course aims to:

Build language skills and confidence gradually through our multi-level syllabus.

Help students achieve their individual goals in language learning.

Gain a better understanding of English books, films, songs, the internet and other media.

Academic Skills Sessions

The academic skills sessions give students an introduction to exam techniques and are intended to help students improve the skills of academic reading, writing, listening and speaking.

These sessions take place over two hours each week and culminate with students taking the Bucksmore Assessment.

The variety of lessons and teaching material provide students with a stimulating and comprehensive learning experience throughout their stay with Bucksmore.

London Experience Lessons

The London experience lessons bring London to life in the classroom and provide students with functional language and vocabulary to use in their daily life during their stay at Bucksmore London.

These lessons link specifically to famous sights in London such as the London Eye, Canary Wharf and Kensington. Ordering a curry on Brick Lane or bargaining with a street seller in Camden Market are real life situations incorporated into the ‘London experience lessons’.

Project Work

Project sessions at Bucksmore London promote group work and co-operation and allow participation across all levels of English.

Popular project sessions include Bucksmore President, Battle of the Bands and Bucksmore News.

Unique to Bucksmore London, students now have the ‘What’s it like to live in London?’ project making English learning even more personalised and London centric.

The aims of project work are to encourage collaboration and communication through the completion of real-world tasks that use English with an authentic purpose. Students receive vocabulary and grammar input in the first part of the project session, and are then placed into groups. Groups are provided with a project guideline which they should follow with the aim of completing by the end of the preparation session. The weekly project culminates in a presentation evening in which groups display and present their work.

Резиденция университета

15 minutes from school walking
Minimum age — 14
Full board

Both Bucksmore London and the London Advanced Studies Program’s accommodation is based at the newly refurbished Moonraker Point located only 20 minutes away from campus. Moonraker Point is part of the university’s student accommodation, and provides Bucksmore students with newly-refurbished and high quality single en-suite bedrooms.

As the accommodation is just over a mile away from the main campus, students will travel between the two either by tube, bus or walking (weather dependent). All students are given a free travel-card for each week of their stay, and students will never travel between the accommodation and campus without supervision from a Bucksmore member of staff.

Bucksmore also offers a complimentary airport transfer service to students arriving at Heathrow, Gatwick and London City airports.
