Bucksmore Young Leaders has been carefully designed to provide the key skills that students need to become future leaders of their generation.

This Corpus Christi summer school combines workshops, seminars and interactive lessons to educate students in the important leadership skills of team-building, public speaking, formal presentations, the art of negotiation, Business English, independent research and debating.

This is a course designed for ambitious, highly motivated students who are looking for something more than the ‘standard’ English summer school. This course is an investment in the students’ future and also provides them with the opportunity to network with similar-minded young people from all over the world.
