What's the difference between the 5 and 6-term programme?


Similar academic content is taught on both programmes, however the pace of the six-term programme is slightly gentler than that of the five-term programme. Students on the six-term programme have more time to settle into ‘Newton life’ and will also receive additional teaching time in all subjects during their first year of study, with an emphasis on study skills and laboratory skills.
