We are delighted to announce the commencement of the Lampton Exceptional Scholars Programme in September 2015. This unique and bespoke course is an elite training programme that will support Lampton’s most academically aspirational students in their pursuit of places at the country’s most selective universities and employers.
The programme will facilitate the development of skills that top universities and employers demand from students:
• Analysis and evaluation
• Problem solving
• Debate, discussion and high level verbal communication
• Logical, careful and critical thinking
• High level academic literacy
The programme will support students as they work to develop and extend these high-level, vital skills, through a variety of different learning opportunities. Furthermore, the programme will support those candidates who will be sitting the BMAT (Med/VetMed, Dentistry), UKCAT (Med/VetMed) and LNAT (Law) examinations.
The Lampton Exceptional Scholars Programme will be an important asset to students’ profile, UCAS application, references, CV and employment application, as it is evidence of one’s personal commitment to self-development.
We look forward to supporting our students’ in their pursuit of excellence.
Each year we place students on each of the following long-term programmes are running:
- To develop independent learning and critical thinking skills
- To provide experience of a range of SOAS subjects
- To deepen participants’ understanding of the HE sector and application process
Students meet with current SOAS students on a regular basis, with the overarching structure focussing on building skills and knowledge in term one, working towards producing a written piece of work in term two, and exploring higher education options in the summer.
The programme is made up of academic & professional training, mentoring, work experience opportunities and university access. SEO Scholars exists to helps participating students gain places at the very best UK universities and go on to secure work in some of the world’s most rewarding and competitive industries after graduation.
Students have attended a number of workshops, including a highly successful experimental psychology day.
