common questions

What is a Catalyst Transcript?

A Catalyst Transcript (CT) is a comprehensive narrative document created by the Catalyst Team detailing students performance on the course. It provides personalised feedback and assessment against Catalyst key competency areas.

CTs are intended to be informative and guiding, surfacing strengths and areas for growth.

What are the 2023 course dates, and what is the time commitment?

Please see our Programmes page for details about upcoming programmes in 2023.

Catalyst works with cohorts to ensure an immersive, interactive experience for all students. Programmes are full time; on average, students will spend 35 hours per week involved in course programming. Some students may choose to dedicate more of their time to the course, specifically with a view to working on their personal projects.

Importantly, though it is a full-time course, we fundamentally oppose ‘ZOOM-school’ and are extremely wary of screen fatigue. Students will not be ‘stuck behind the screen’ all day. Catalyst challenges students to participate in both remote and in-person activities in the student’s local community.

How much does it cost and is there financial aid?

Programme fees vary by programme and application date. In short, the earlier you apply and accept an offer, the lower the programme fee. Please see our Pricing page for a summary of application deadlines and programme fees.

Financial aid is available, and is offered on a case by case basis. Students who are invited to interview will have the chance to indicate whether or not they require financial aid.

Who is eligible for Catalyst?

Most Catalyst students are between 13-18 years old; entering Years 9 - 13.

If you are currently in your final year of secondary school, you may also be eligible to apply depending on the term dates of your academic year.

If you’re not sure of your eligibility please get in touch with us at: catalyst@wincoll.ac.uk

Is Catalyst accredited?

Catalyst is offered by Winchester College, one of the world’s most distinguished secondary schools. Winchester College is accredited.

Will students receive a certificate or diploma?

Yes, students who successfully complete the course will receive, among other things, both a completion certificate and a Catalyst Transcript. They will also be invited to a Catalyst alumni network, a growing community of Catalyst and Winchester College alumni.

Students who excel may also graduate with distinction.
