Key Stage 3

This is a brand-new series of study at home online courses on exciting topics for Year 8 or Year 9 students to explore at leisure.

With materials selected and written by UWTSD lecturers each one of these short courses take about six weeks to complete with one hour of study per week.  Students follow the course contents online, with safe links to further research materials, short video talks and interesting mini tasks.  There is a final assignment for students to complete at the end of six weeks.

The courses are designed to provide an enjoyable, stress-free learning experience that gives a taste of university level work.  We recommend students chose one course to follow and take the full six weeks to develop their knowledge and ideas.
