We are delighted to announce that our 2014 Oxbridge Advanced Studies Program brochure has just been published and is available to view online here: http://www.bucksmore.com/ebrochure/oasp/Bucksmore.html. Please contact us if you would like a copy posted to you as well. They are also available to download as pdfs here: www.bucksmore.com/downloads.
In summer 2014 the Oxbridge Advanced Studies Program will be run in two locations: Brasenose College, Oxford University (OASP) and Magdalene College, Cambridge University (CASP).
CASP and OASP are our most advanced programmes, designed for American students and near-native English speakers. Students choose two tutorial subjects to study from a long list of options and the class size is between 1 and 6 students depending on the popularity of that particular subject. They will also receive a one-to-one tutorial every week in both subjects in 2014. Please note that some subjects are only available in one location. See pages 10 to 13 for the full list of courses available. Detailed course outlines will soon be available to download from our website. I will let you know as soon as they are ready.
The course also includes creative workshops, Master Classes in key skills and optional SAT or IELTS preparation at no extra cost. As with all Bucksmore summer programmes, excursions, activities and everything else is all included. The other exciting addition for 2014 is a Varsity competition between the two campuses. CASP students will visit Oxford and OASP students will visit Cambridge to compete in debates etc and to socialise with students from the other campus.
We ask that all non-native English speakers have at least a C1 level of English and I have attached our English language placement test for 2014. I have also attached our 2014 registration form. Students should complete all sections of this including the personal statement.
OASP and CASP are fantastic courses for ambitious high-school students looking for a challenging and stimulating summer program.
