Why Choose Academic Discovery?

Academic Discovery offers students the opportunity to study a different elective each week (15 hours). Students can choose a different elective option for each week of their stay. This option is ideal for students who would like to explore their future subject passions, or who wish to broaden their academic development.


Which Electives Can Students Choose?

Students can choose to study any weekly combination of Elective subjects. Students may wish to enrol in a combination of Electives within a similar field (e.g. Medicine and Natural Sciences) to further their development in this broad academic area.  Other students may wish to combine a broader mix of subjects so as to see which path of study they would prefer to pursue in the future (e.g. English Literature & Creative Writing and Engineering). Students may combine between 2 and 6 Electives over the duration of the summer.

At Which Location is Academic Discovery Held?

Students will receive their lessons, accommodation, full board and social programme at the site where the chosen Elective is taught. In the case of a student choosing a certain combination of Electives (e.g. History of Art and Law), students will transfer between St. Hugh’s College (History of Art) and Wycliffe Hall (Law) for the duration of the week.
