Cambridge Immerse is a residential academic programme with a diverse and enriching curriculum. Our 16-18 year old programmes are designed to provide a taster of what it’s like to study a subject at university level. Our 13-15 year old programmes are designed to ignite students’ interest and help them better understand what subjects they should be pursuing at a higher level.
All academic sessions are carefully designed and taught by expert tutors in an optimal learning environment that stimulates academic enquiry. And our carefully planned schedule ensures that the programme not only meets the academic needs of the participants, but also provides a unique experience of the university city through an abundance of extracurricular activities.
Students reside in one of central Cambridge’s largest and most beautiful university colleges. Within the college’s historic walls, we pride ourselves on providing unique experiences of leadership and academic excellence through an inspirational programme for participants. With its diverse and enriching curriculum, the programme allows students to explore and further their knowledge of a chosen subject in an unrivalled academic environment. Students emerge more confident and ready to articulate what they have learnt, with knowledge of their chosen fields that provides fascinating academic insights – and, of course, many unforgettable memories along the way.
Scholarship applicants must be:
– Aged between 13-18 at the commencement of the selected programme session- Available to attend the academic sessions in Cambridge for the duration of the programme- Eligible to live and study in the UK for the duration of the programme- Attending a non-fee paying school (or attending a fee-paying school whilst receiving a scholarship/grant/bursary/financial assistance)
Our philosophy is that each of our participants should feel challenged with interesting academic concepts, whilst our tutors create a welcoming and supportive environment in which our participants thrive.
During the academic sessions at Cambridge Immerse, participants will be encouraged to explore and discuss advanced (and interesting!) topics in carefully planned classes that are designed to emulate the unique Oxbridge system of tutor-student engagement and debate. The aim of this approach is to allow students to develop skills that go beyond simply the learning of facts, but rather to interact with the material in a way that will stimulate academic thought and curiosity. These skills are vital for success in higher education. Participants in our Cambridge summer programmes tackle challenging and interesting academic topics that not only further academic passions but also develops themselves as a student and as an individual.
Applicants should complete an online form as accurately as possible. The deadline for completing the application form is 23:59pm on 7th December 2018.
