Calling All Creative Minds: Writing To Reflect
Enter now for your chance to win a programme place and tablet!
At InvestIN, we want to finish the school year on a high by taking a moment to reflect on what we have gained this year, rather than what we have lost.

To celebrate National Writing Day, we’re calling on students aged 12-18 to enter our ‘Writing to Reflect’ competition.  We’re looking for positive, thoughtful submissions detailing a skill or life lesson students have learnt outside the classroom and how they think it will benefit their future.

Shortlisted entries will be judged by a professional writer and the winner will receive an Amazon Fire Tablet and a place on one of our ‘Live Online’ weekend programmes! For every entry, we’ll make a donation to UNICEF, whose life-changing work helps children across the world access education.

The deadline for entries is Friday 6th August and must be no more than 250 words. We kindly request you forward this email to students and parents so they can enter now.

The programme is virtual and free of charge and is open to all students who are academically able to study at Bath in their chosen subject.

Georgetown Pre-College Online Program

Posted by heo

Georgetown University

Georgetown University is a strong believer the value of mentorship

Mentors are an essential part of Georgetown University’s new Pre-College Online Program.

At Georgetown, we believe high school students should be supported as they explore their interests. When they enroll in one of our new online, pre-college courses, each student is assigned a mentor who helps guide the learning experience. Mentors are Georgetown students and alumni who are well-versed in the subject area of the course.

Mentors also answer questions about majors and careers in the field. They help with brainstorming and assignments.

This commitment to providing support for students is at the heart of the Georgetown approach. We follow the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis—care for the whole person—and our goal with this new program is to provide a holistic experience. Students deserve the opportunity to develop their own talents and dreams, and this program will help them do that.

Please share this link with your students.

Current courses offered:

Law: How to Think Like an Attorney

High school students are given an inside look at the profession. They practice creating evidence-based arguments, analyzing information, and discerning fact from opinion. Topics covered offer a good background for potential college majors and career paths related to law.

Medical Research: Clinical Trials Resulting in Medical Discoveries

High school students learn the processes researchers use to formulate and conduct studies, as well as evaluate the evidence gathered. Topics covered offer a good background for potential college majors and career paths related to STEM, medical research, pharmacology, and biostatistics.


Two Key Advantages for Students
  • Flexible learning: Course lessons are delivered by renowned professors through dynamic videos, allowing students to study anytime that fits their schedule.
  • Certificate of Completion from Georgetown University: High school students earn this recognition when they finish the course successfully.

Please share this email with your students today.
