Tutors


We are proud to have involved highly qualified and passionate people at our summer programs in the past 9 years. The lecturers and tutors who have taught various courses or delivered lectures at our summer programme are as follows.


The programme also includes lectures by guest speakers that normally include prominent people in their respective fields. These include both professionals as well as leading academics in their subject areas. Interaction with guest speakers allows the students to familiarise themselves with the practical aspects of their subject areas and interact with those academics who have many years’ experience of working and/or researching in their field.
