Video Testimonials from our summer schools
Subject OverviewThe law provides the framework which governs our individual and collective behaviour. Studying the law is not only an incredibly stimulating intellectual activity, but can provide real insight into the rules and guidelines which shape whole societies. The Reach Law Course offers a vibrant introduction to the study of law, exploring a range of modules including criminal law, international law, human rights law and constitutional law. This academically rigorous course will be brought to life through the study of real cases, as well as providing the opportunity for students to develop invaluable skills in debating, public speaking, researching, and presenting an argument. Focusing on both UK and international law, it will encourage students to think critically about legal issues facing the world in the 21st Century. This dynamic course will help them to understand the range of career opportunities in the sector and introduce them to both the academic complexities and the vocational opportunities of the subject.
Whichever subject(s) you choose to study with us, you have a number of options in terms of how your learning experience is designed. Broadly we take three slightly different approaches depending on the needs of the student, and you should discuss your desired approach during your free advice session. Our three approaches are as follows:
- A pre-University course, which prepares you for university study by offering a general overview of the subject at university level, tailored to your interests
- Ongoing tutoring, which typically focusses on specific requirements such as an upcoming exam or additional support in a particular area
- A research project, which incorporates a deep dive into a particular aspect of your chosen subject as well as key skills required for university level study and an assessed presentation component at the end of the course. For this option, students must choose a tuition package and also a research project ‘add-on.’
Please let your personal adviser know your preferences during your advice session and they will be delighted to put together a bespoke package for you.
Remember: You can study more than one subject with us and many of our students do exactly that.

Research Project (5 hours)
Students choosing our research project must first choose an academic bundle of 10, 20 or 40 hours in their chosen subject and then also select the research project add-on. Your tutor will work with you to design a project as the focus of your academic tuition. The research project add-on comprises sessions specifically focussed on the skills you will need to hone at university level as well as preparing you for a formal presentation, which you will make to an independent academic at the end of your course. Following your presentation you will receive a research project certificate and report from your course tutor.
Exam and Interview Prep (5 hours)
Do you have a very particular goal in mind? An exam or set of exams that you are focussed upon or a particular interview or set of interviews that you would like to prepare for? Our exam and interview prep classes are designed to do two things. The first is to ensure you have the key skills to succeed: revision techniques and exam preparation for example or public speaking and presentation skills. The second is to pair that skillset with the particular knowledge that will be relevant in the exam(s) or interview(s) you are targeting. And that is where our bespoke packages come into their own - you will be paired with tutors that have both particular subject knowledge as well as the skills you will require to succeed.
Study Skills (5 hours)
What does it take to succeed in university and in life? How can you take care of yourself, emotionally and psychologically, while doing your best every step of the way? Complement your passion for learning with concrete skills to help you thrive and succeed, through sessions covering everything from revision techniques and exam preparation, to essay writing, interview skills and more.
Leadership Skills (5 hours)
What does it take to be a young leader and global citizen in today's world? In a world as bustling and busy as ours is today, stepping up to make a difference can be a daunting task. Through this online course, students consider questions of leadership, youth involvement, the role of the internet and social media in 21st-century leadership, global vs. local engagement, and how leadership can be used to make the world a better, kinder place. In parallel to these theoretical discussions, students are challenged to consider the most important issues facing the world today and to develop their own forms of leadership. Workshops on public speaking, presentation skills, interview skills, exam and revision help, academic writing, and more, will reinforce leadership discipline and ideals and help tomorrow’s young leaders to achieve their goals!
