This short course will begin by exploring the changing conceptions of body and soul from the Platonic to the Aristotelian models of Greek antiquity. We will also explore how Christianity engaged with Pagan philosophies, comparing and contrasting Old Testament ideas of the soul as the blood or the whole self with New Testament ideas of spirit, flesh and the eternal struggle between them. The final stage of the course will examine how the Scientific Revolution in medicine sparked a cluster of new theories about the animate body and will finish with an examination of how technology has reordered our sense of self in the internet age.

When you first arrive in the UK it can be difficult to adapt to a new culture and to learn English. This course is designed for international students aged 15-19 who need to improve their English language skills and also want to learn more about English culture. The course will also help you to decide what future area of study you are interested in.
You will attend at least two ESOL classes every week and work towards achieving an ESOL Skills for Life Certificate. You will also attend classes in ICT & Employability, Maths, Health & Wellbeing, Study Skills, and Living in Britain. These classes will help you to integrate into British life and culture. The Living in Britain sessions may include visits to local attractions and places of interest.
During the course you will meet course directors and tutors from other vocational areas of the college. You may be offered the chance to take part in some practical sessions in the areas you are interested in. This will give you more information about courses to help you decide what you want to do when your English has reached Entry Level 3.
This range of courses is designed for all ages and levels of ability. Each individual will be fully assessed by our professional tutors and advised which qualification would best suit his/her needs.
If English is not your first language, we will ask you to do an initial ESOL assessment. We offer a range of ESOL classes which may suit your needs better than a Functional skills qualification.
