Advanced Studies in England (ASE) is a training center located in the English city of Bath. The educational institution has an unusual history: ASE was founded by New Yorker Dr. Don Nunes and was conceived as a place to study, combining the best of British and American systems. Dr. colleagues in Bath, Oxford, and America were involved in developing the program.

The first students (11 people) at ASE appeared in the spring of 1989. In 2000, ASE was presented at the NAFSA International Education Conference, and since 2004 the center has become a non-profit unit of Franklin and Marshall College. The latter has a reputation as a reputable college and a number of accreditations confirming its respectability: from the Commission for Higher Education of the Middle States, the regional accreditation agency to official recognition by the US Department of Education.

Over the years, ASE College has done a great job, so it can rightfully be proud of its reputation for academic excellence. In addition to a well-thought-out curriculum, which is implemented in groups of 13 people, the college is distinguished by a qualified teaching staff - it includes many teachers from Oxford.

A few quick facts about ASE:

  • Training is offered for a semester, school year or during the summer months
  • Sophisticated Humanities Academic Program
  • Organization of study tours as part of the educational program
  • Residences not only in Bath, but also in Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon
  • A diverse social program.

ASE Summer School

  • Age: from 16 years old
  • Dates: June 6 - July 11
  • Duration: 5 weeks.

The summer educational program offers students 5 weeks in the British city of Bath, which is included in the list of World Heritage Sites. The entire program of the summer school is divided into three types: basic, educational and theatrical.

The main Summer School consists of two courses: the first is a seminar that is conducted by one of the professors of the American branch of ASE, and the second is the main course from the British faculty. The seminars may vary depending on the year, however there are several main ones:

  • “Bath, Britain and the Black Atlantic” (Britain's participation in transatlantic trade)
  • “Jane Austen at Bath” (a study of Jane Austen’s novels in a city context)
  • "The Romans in Britain" (a lesson in history and archeology).

ASE Education Summer School offers a curriculum combining coursework and hands-on training at a local elementary school as future teachers - students will seek an innovative approach to teaching. The education school operates near the main summer school, so all students will live together and make excursion trips to the cities.

The program of the theater summer school differs only in that the emphasis here is on the performances and rehearsals of students who are passionate about theater skills.

Regardless of the type of summer school, class sizes are 15 people each, so enrollment closes very quickly. Application deadline is February 15th. Classes are held daily from Monday to Thursday, and study tours are planned on Fridays.

Participants of summer programs live in apartments or historical houses in the territory of Bath, as students of the main programs.

Events Advanced Studies Language Center in England

ASE students will find a carefully structured social and cultural program that motivates them to immerse themselves in urban life: the cultural heritage of Bath, combined with the compactness of the territory, make it an excellent place for foreign students to live and communicate with native speakers.

ASE executives strive to give students a glimpse of Britain from the inside out, so young people will not only live in Bath during their studies: each semester includes staying at University College Oxford for a week + three days in Stratford-upon-Avon. The latter is scheduled to attend a performance by the world famous Royal Shakespeare Company. From here, day trips are organized behind the rural "treasures" hidden from the general public in the outback of England or Wales.

ASE students are granted membership in the Bath Spa University Student Union, which entitles them to use the free shuttle bus that goes to the university. On campus, they can visit Sports Village, STA Travel, student bars or cafes.

To familiarize students with various communities of the city, a number of informational meetings and study tours are provided. Each student will have a full-time mentor who will help in all the nuances of extracurricular life.

Some of the available communities are:

  • Next Stage Theater Company
  • FoodCycle Charity Community
  • Organic Gardening Group
  • Running community Good Gym and others.

Groups and organizations within the educational institution are also available for ASE students: the list is quite extensive - from yoga to knitting, dances (from Scottish dances to salsa) and other types of arts (writing, painting, theater and more). There are even contemporary art courses in ceramics, cinema, musical theater and visual art.

Scholarships Advanced Studies Language Center in England

ASE offers its students a series of scholarships that will help them significantly reduce the cost of studying for programs. Applying for a scholarship includes 2 stages:

  • Application letter (filed with the main application) indicating the type of financial support for which you are applying, and the reasons for applying
  • A financial aid application detailing current awards.

Types of financial support:

  • ASE scholarship based on needs - up to £ 1,000 / semester.
  • Educational scholarship. The Ann Nunes Fellowship is named after the Director of ASE from 1997 to 2004. This is a scholarship of £ 500 per semester, which is provided to all students as part of the curriculum.
  • Memorial Fellowship. This kind of financial support came up with Don Nunez, who was the director of ASE until his death in November 1997. He believed that the training center should be accessible for ethnic diversity, so the Don Nunez Memorial Scholarship is granted to representatives of ethnic groups depending on their financial needs. Size - 1000 £ / semester.
  • ASE Alumni Association Scholarship. Graduates of the training center generously support ASE, so they can fund at least one student per semester that has such a need.
