Our programme uniquely combines academic insight with industry experience to best prepare you for your future career. Alongside the taught content, you will have the opportunity to engage with top industry professionals in a series of insightful and inspiring practical workshops, giving you the opportunity to experience what it is like to work in your chosen career. This dual approach enables you to develop the key skills and competencies required for success in study and employment.
SBC’s College students have the unique experience of sampling university-level academic tuition in authentic Oxbridge settings. Our award-winning academic programmes have been expertly developed to deliver engaging and motivational programmes to our students, featuring: seminars that blend subject input with active discussion, lectures to absorb knowledge, practicals to enable students to collaboratively lead a project and take a hands-on approach to learning. Alongside these students will have the opportunity to take part in industry-specific workshops that will give students a unique insight into the life and career of their chosen field.
Our courses are supplemented with access to online courses via EtonX. Students will work with their tutor to identify the most suitable programme to access that will aid their development in a specific subject area. All courses have been developed utilising the centuries of expertise that Eton College has in preparing students for top universities, leadership positions, and successful careers.
Outside of the classroom, we offer an exciting and diverse social programme, enabling students to explore the city of Oxford and spend quality time with their new friends from around the world. There are pre-arranged activities including sport, museum visits, and punting; as well as the opportunities for students to independently explore the city in small groups.
A wide range of evening events are also arranged for the students to maximise their experience. These events include formal college dining and a Graduation at the end of the course.
There are also two excursions during the course, with students having the opportunity to travel to London and Cambridge. In London, students will have the opportunity to explore some of the capital’s most famous landmarks as well as enjoying some free-time for shopping. In Cambridge, we’ll visit some of the city’s most famous colleges, and go punting on the River Cam.
