SOAS invites students to attend the Turkish Immersion Academy. Students will work on the four key language skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening, there will be a focus on the writing aspect. The Academy uses both academic-led sessions and group work to prepare the students for the Turkish GCSE.

We want the students to use the time at university to learn more about what Higher Education can offer them. Additionally, we want students to understand the benefits of knowing foreign languages.

Target Year: Years 9, 10 and 11

Eligibility criteria: Students should be Turkish speakers, who have been entered for the Turkish GCSE. Priority will be given to those who are first generation in their family to attend university and are taking exams this year.

There are two application forms:

Please complete this form if members of staff will be accompanying students.

Please ask students to complete this form if students will be attending unaccompanied.

Application deadline: Friday 7th February 2020

We will let students and teachers know on Wednesday 12th February 2020 whether they have been successful in gaining a place.
