15

The lifespan of each Module or class. Students will take one class at a time for three weeks, allowing them to focus intensively on the subject matter. This allows for every student to get the most out of every class.

Our teachers make commitments to come and teach a class for three weeks and make themselves fully available to help their students understand classwork, work through projects, or help students with their Capstone Projects for graduation.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • Our admission process is a holistic review of each student’s preparedness level for higher studies and potential for a successful career.
  • While we are highly selective we do not base the decision on the review of the grades and transcripts alone. We believe that grades and standardised test results are sometimes not fully indicative of a student’s ability to work on a project and to innovate. 
  • We consider the overall certificates, transcript, motivation and recommendation letters as well as awards, achievements and extracurricular activities. One of the crucial parts of the student’s application is the portfolio and ability to demonstrate eagerness to study a particular field.
