The course runs like a conference, with students enjoying an exciting programme of guest speakers and expert lectures.

Students can choose from three project themes that they will work on before, during and after the course.


This project looks at admissions to UK universities: what they look for from students and what to include on applications. It also includes visits to UK universities, so students can experience what life is like at a UK university and be inspired. Working in groups, students build towards a presentation at the end of the course.

Entrepreneurship and Leadership

This project encourages students to explore contemporary skills such as debating, critical thinking, and team work. Students work in groups to build a business plan for a social enterprise that will benefit their community.


World leader

Our World Leaders course was developed in 2019. The course looks at different world issues which help to get the youth of today engaged in making the world a better place for now and the future. Some examples of topics included in the course are climate change, gender equality and sustainable cities and Communities.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. The ‘World Leaders’ course has been developed around these goals that IH London is fully supporting.

This course will look at the 17 goals which show how the planet is changing and how our actions can make a difference in order to leave the planet in a better place. It also focuses on how cities and communities around the world have adapted in order to follow the sustainability goals. The course will include a workshop from the global UN SDG Action Campaigns Global Events Manager, and also from a representative from the charity ‘Water aid’.


This project focusses on acknowledging the importance of certain themes like the environment, the digital age and poverty by building a project
to benefit the community.
