Extra-curricular Concierge

Exploring opportunities outside the curriculum, whether academic, intellectual or merely for leisure, is fundamental to u2's ethos. Confidence building is one of the most valuable tools u2 can give to a student.

Our understanding of the term 'tuition' encompasses both academic and cultural tuition - u2 mentors can accompany students on visits to museums, lectures in London, Oxford or Cambridge, and book workshops. We have mentors in place to teach language masterclasses in over 8 languages including Arabic and Mandarin, coding geniuses able to guide a student through the digital world, fine artists, drama tutors and sports coaches who have performed at both National and International levels.

One of u2's mentors invented an app called Summly, an automatic summarisation algorithm, aged just 17, which was sold to Yahoo for US$30 million, making him one of the youngest self-made millionaires. He studied Computer Science and Philosophy at Oxford and has published three papers in Philosophy thus far. Get an insight into the world of coding and algorithms with one of u2’s Computer Science mentors with similar expertise.
