Course directors from eton college create etonx courses

How are the courses developed?

Course Directors from Eton College have created a series of short skills development courses which reflect Eton’s teaching ethos and include activities implemented at Eton College in tutorials, lessons and extra-curricular activities.

Each interactive self-directed course can be implemented alongside your son or daughter’s studies before attending an SBC summer school as great preparation or after attending an SBC summer school as a continuation of their summer education.

How long will it take to complete?

There are 7 units that students can work through at their own pace but we recommend little and often. They will have access to around 7 – 10 hours of highly engaging and interactive learning materials.

When do the EtonX courses have to be completed by?

All courses must be completed by December 2020.

EtonX courses are also available from Summer Boarding Courses as an individual purchase, without needing to enrol on a summer school course. Contact us to enquire about a special package.
