Pre-University Programme

The Pre-University programme is the perfect opportunity for you to sample or confirm your academic aspirations. Your teachers will give you a taster of what it will be like to study their subjects at an undergraduate level.

Each course will be made up of lectures, seminars and talks from Old Bryanstonians currently working at universities. Alongside your Pre-University course there will be a series of life skills masterclasses which will help you prepare for life after Bryanston.
