STEM enrichment students in the Reach Out Lab

Applications are now open for the STEM Potential programme, which aims to support up to 90 students in their KS4 and KS5 studies via lectures, subject-specific workshops and a non-residential summer school (in Y10).

What does STEM Potential involve?

STEM Potential students attend around five events each academic year at our South Kensington Campus, including:

  • masterclasses in science, engineering and maths subjects
  • lectures
  • university experience taster days

At Y10 and Y11 students experience different fields of science, technology, engineering and maths to gain a better understanding of subjects they may wish to study at A-level.

During the on-campus events happening through the year students gain a feel for university life, working closely with Imperial academics and students. Additionally, Y10 students take part in a non-residential summer school during August.

At Y12 and Y13 students take part in subject specific workshops relevant for the STEM subjects they are undertaking at A-level. They are paired with a current Imperial undergraduate e-mentor to provide them with online support and information.

STEM Potential students also receive support with their university applications through general application information and workshops on personal statements and university interviews. 

How do I apply?

To apply you must submit an online application form:

This application will take approximately 15 minutes to fill in. You must provide a personal statement of up to 500 words as part of the application. You must also provide details of a teacher who we will ask to verify your details and suitability for this course.

If you choose to exit the application form and complete it at a later stage, your responses will be saved for a week. After this time, your responses will be deleted and you must re-start the application from scratch.

Please be aware that for your application to be recorded you must click through to the final question and press the final 'Next' button to submit your responses.
