Online STEM School

The IWE Summer STEM School offers international students courses on Science, Technology & IT and Mathematics. Through engaging methods of teaching, each lesson is filled with interactive activities to ensure students get the most out of each session. 

  • Perfect preparation for school term mathematics, science and computer science courses
  • For students aged 9-13 (students will be set up in the groups according to their levels in each subject)
  • Very small class sizes (5 – 12 students)
  • 16 lessons per week
  • Optional additional individual tuition classes available
  • Course takes place June 22 to July 30, Monday to Thursdays at 10.30 to 14.50. 
  • Each lesson lasts 50 minutes

STEM school covers following subjects:


Mathematics- 5 periods per week


Science - 5 periods per week


Computer science - 6 periods per week

Lessons cover and revise key areas of the subject, along with exam tips. The use of past exam questions help students improve their approach to exams by identifying keywords and recognizing what examiners want to see.
