Taught by expert academics, practising professionals and inspirational educators from the University of Cambridge, the 2-week subject-based summer programme is stimulating, challenging and unique, exposing students to the latest innovation and research in various subjects. We provide small group supervisions after the lectures to answer the students’ questions and discuss their own ideas related to the lecture content to help them better comprehend new knowledge. They will be required to deliver a final presentation on their interested topics at the end of the programme. Students will also be living in a prestigious college at central Cambridge and enjoy what is like to study and live as a Cambridge student here.

Colleges are where Cambridge students live, eat and socialise, and where they receive small group teaching sessions called supervisions, which are regarded as one of the best teaching models in the world. Colleges are also self-governing; while they are part of the University (subject to University regulations) they select their own students and have their own internal procedures. Although students receive the same outstanding education whichever college they attend, each has its own unique history, environment and identity.
