Enrichment Courses

Enrichment Courses at TASIS England Summer School offer students an unparalleled opportunity to explore a subject they may be interested in but have no time to study in their normal school curriculum. In Enrichment Course classes, students come from all over the world with their individual perspectives and understandings, yet with a shared desire to learn more about the subject.
