The Personal Development Scheme is a programme aimed to provide students with extracurricular experiences that will support building life skills, developing soft skills, reinforcing self-reflection, and enriching university applications.
The scheme also aims to help students discover potential careers and university degrees. The scheme is mandatory both for Fifth and Sixth Form students.
For Fifth Form students the programme includes activities such as:
- workshops on various topics (i.e. wellbeing and developing resilience, public
speaking and academic skills)
- lectures on project management with experts
- graded group projects chosen by students
Sixth Form students have to complete two individual projects from 3 types of extracurricular activities:
- academic (i.e. academic summer schools, internships in scientific institutions,
- professional (i.e. internships in companies, summer work experiences)
- charity (i.e. voluntary work, organising charity events)
The Personal Development Scheme is coordinated by:
