STEM Potential programme
STEM Potential supports up to 90 students in their KS4 and KS5 studies via lectures, subject-specific workshops and a non-residential summer school (in Y10).
What does STEM Potential involve?
STEM Potential students attend around five events each academic year at our South Kensington Campus, including:
- masterclasses in science, engineering and maths subjects
- university experience taster days
At Y10 and Y11 students experience different fields of science, technology, engineering and maths to gain a better understanding of subjects they may wish to study at A-level.
During the on-campus events happening through the year students gain a feel for university life, working closely with Imperial academics and students. Additionally, Y10 students take part in a non-residential summer school during August.
At Y12 and Y13 students take part in subject specific workshops relevant for the STEM subjects they are undertaking at A-level. They are paired with a current Imperial undergraduate e-mentor to provide them with online support and information.
STEM Potential students also receive support with their university applications through general application information and workshops on personal statements and university interviews.
How do I apply?
Applications for the 2017–18 academic year are now closed. Applications dates for 2018-19 will be announced in the autumn.
