We asked Will the following questions:

What do you love about SBC?
I’ve been part of SBC for over 10 years now, and to me it feels like one big family. I love being able to work with students and families from all over the World and bring them together for a truly memorable experience during the summer.

If you were a student, what SBC subject would you choose to study this Summer?

I’d choose SBC Mathematics at Eton College – I think it’s a really unique opportunity to study at one of the most famous schools in the World. The course involves a lot of project work which will really bring the subject to life!

What’s your top UK Summer travel tip?
Make sure you bring some comfortable shoes for walking and exploring! There are lots of things to see whilst you’re on excursion, or spending time in Oxford, Windsor or Bournemouth.

What’s your one piece of advice for students this year?
It’s a great opportunity to meet and learn from other students from all around the World – so make sure you spend time getting to know everyone, and not too much time on your phone!
