Academic Support

While the BISC program is designed to challenge students, we offer students plenty of support to be successful. One-to-one mentoring by faculty is reinforced with academic skills sessions, and bespoke support by our Student Success Coordinator.

We believe that our students should have access to expert faculty who enjoy motivating and challenging undergraduates to reach their full potentials. Our small class sizes and friendly learning community give all students the chance to work closely with our instructors to be successful.

Your Musicians-in-Residence are Dr. Shelley Katz and Diana Gilchrist, Canadian musicians who have been based in Europe for over twenty years. Diana has a regular weekly presence at the BISC in addition to her teaching duties and Shelley visits during each term to give occasional concerts, lectures, lecture-recitals, workshops, or master-classes.

The BISC has an ongoing Scholar-in-Residence program. We invite both established scholars and exciting new researchers to join the castle community to share their work in formal talks and drop-in sessions, to mentor undergraduates’ own research, and to advise on postgraduate study possibilities.
