Our diagnostic weekends include two lessons from different academic subjects. During the lessons, the students will be exposed to material they are unlikely to have seen before in school. Following this, students take part in activities and workshops we have designed specifically to see how well students analyze, process and retain newly-acquired knowledge. A group project then allows us to see how the student copes in a team environment, while an English test helps us to see how well the student is prepared for full-time study in the language. Finally, a meeting with an educational psychologist completes the student’s profile, and allows us to see their preferred learning styles. Overall, this part of the recruiting process helps to uncover a student’s skills and potential.
