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 stay at one campus for the duration of their stay. In the case of a student choosing a combination of Electives which take place across the two different campuses they will stay at the campus where their first Elective is held e.g. History of Art at St Hugh’s and Law at Wycliffe Hall, students will be accommodated at St Hugh’s and will walk the short distance to Wycliffe for their second Elective.

Please see subject locations below:
St Hugh’s: General English, Business & Leadership, Politics & Economics, History of Art, Natural Sciences, Engineering

Wycliffe Hall: English Literature & Creative Writing, International Relations, Law, Medicine

Please Note: From 5th August – 19th August, all subjects will take place at St. Hugh’s College.
