The Milestone method is the result of a unique development work over the past decade, combining methodological achievements in international higher education with the Institute’s own professional innovations such as student-centred, personalised education and experience-based decision-making. Our teaching promotes research and project work, and allows for immersion in high-level academic subjects as well as practical applications. We encourage our students to recognise their strengths, find the area that best suits their talents, and prepare them to become leaders in their personal and professional lives, thus providing a useful service to the society in which they live. Application for the 2023/24 academic year is closed.
At the Milestone Institute we think of being gifted as a matter of uncovering potential rather than luck in the gene pool lottery. While in public discourse moments of achievement are often conflated with raw cognitive gifts, our experience is that such moments are the result of a complex process and journey: a constellation of the right intellectual challenge, inspiration, and self reflection. Our role in this process is one of exposing students to an array of impulses, and leading them down the rabbit hole of science, humanities and arts. Finding a way out of such exciting intellectual mazes is itself the journey that leads to intellectual and emotional development. Indeed, on such a journey, being branded as ‘gifted’ is one milestone amongst many others.
The Milestone Institute’s faculty are highly qualified academic and industry experts, researchers and business leaders who understand our philosophy and the world of science and business. Our instructors are passionate about their fields and impart this passion to our students through innovative, student-centred methods. They are not only dedicated to the continuous development of our students, they also continuously take part in our developmental internal training to support and educate our students at greater levels every day. Their specialties cover a huge range from architecture, state theory and complex mathematics to genetic engineering or art history.
The Milestone method is the result of a unique development over the past ten years, combining methodological achievements in international higher education with the organisation’s internal professional innovations such as student-centred, personalised education and experience-based decision-making. The quality and continuous development of the system is guaranteed by our Teaching and Learning Team, whose main tasks are to design new modules tailored to students’ preferences and development paths, and to carry out quantitative and qualitative analysis of the entire education system. The methodology we have developed has been validated by the education market, not only through our recruitment results but also through our wide academic network. These international results have enabled Milestone to enter the educational consultancy market and to help other players in the sector to develop.
