This fantastic camp in Cambridge University is the perfect gateway to psychology for 13, 14, 15 years olds.

Advanced pre-university course in Psychology in Cambridge colleges

The Immerse psychology summer programme allows you to explore some of the most fascinating topics in this complex and multidisciplinary field, from behavioural genetics to social psychology. Psychologists explore intriguing questions such as: what makes you unique? What makes you different from others? What are the motivations of human behaviour? The Psychology Summer School Programme provides you with a forum to study, discuss, and debate these questions alongside a wide range of issues, through a curriculum designed and taught by expert tutors from world-leading universities.

Learn directly from expert academics from world-class universities

You will explore novel concepts and share ideas in small groups of like-minded and ambitious peers from around the world. In small class sizes averaging 7 students, you will be guided by expert tutors who have honed their expertise through teaching undergraduate students at world-class universities, including the universities of Cambridge, Oxford, and Harvard. Our rigorous vetting process guarantees that all participants are taught by engaging and supportive educators who are, most of all, enthusiastic about sharing their expertise to ensure our summer school teaching is of the highest quality. Immerse™ is an unrivalled academic experience.

Boost your confidence and develop key attributes in academic skills workshops

Our workshops are geared towards unlocking participants’ potential, giving them the tools to prepare for the next steps of their education and future goals. Build upon existing study skills to support future university-level learning. These workshops explore a diverse and enriching range of topics – past examples have ranged from ‘Productivity tips’ to ’21st Century Technology Skills’. We’re sure that you’ll learn something completely new. Unlike traditional schools, Immerse allows you to learn beyond the traditional curriculum. This programme is designed for students with at least an upper-intermediate level of English (B2).

Example Modules

An Introduction to Psychology: Psychology is surprisingly hard to define. Broadly speaking, it is the study of the mind and behaviour, yet this definition raises more questions than it answers. Psychologists study how we think, feel, and make decisions, as well as the unconscious processes and the neural mechanisms that underpin them.

Foundation of Psychology: In this module you will gain a strong understanding of the foundations that underpin psychology. Exploration will include a deep dive into the four pillars of psychology that include the basic psychological processes of living beings and their applications in day-to-day life. You will also take a look at how those in the field of psychoanalysis evaluate cognitive processes, learning, memory, motivation and emotion, as well as personality and intelligence of individuals.

Child Psychology: Childhood is a time of rapid growth and development, and studying these changes is endlessly stimulating. In this module, you will explore key questions that underpin the study of child psychology such as what influences child development, and how psychologists study the physical and cognitive changes that occur during childhood.

Experimental Psychology: In this module, students will explore the key areas of experimental psychology including philosophy, linguistics, neurophysiology, probability theory and statistics.

Clinical Psychology: In this module, you’ll gain an understanding of what clinical psychology entails, including the use of direct observation, interviews and techniques such as psychometric testing, as well as how psychological intervention in the clinical setting requires shared decision-making with the individual, and often their carers and family members.

**Development Psychology: **Developmental psychology is the study of how and why humans grow, change and adapt across the course of our lives.

History of Psychology Studies: While psychology is still a relatively new discipline, approximately 150 years old, its roots can be traced back to Ancient Greece when renowned philosophers such as Plato and Socrates, discussed topics often still explored in psychology today such as memory, free will versus determinism and nature versus nurture.

Action-packed social programme

Outside of lessons, we are proud to offer a busy and diverse social programme to help you get the most out of your time in Cambridge. This includes activities such as punting on the River Cam, zorb football and a murder mystery night in the college. There are also two excursions during the programme, one day trip to visit Oxford and its constituent colleges, as well as an optional day out in London, seeing the city’s most famous landmarks as well as some free time for shopping. Those who choose not to travel to London are invited to afternoon tea in Cambridge. Activities and excursions are run by our team of friendly mentors – whose main job is to maximise your enjoyment.

Experience traditional 'Formal Hall'

Formal Hall is a traditional weekly meal that takes place in every college. This is an opportunity for students to dress up, dine by candlelight in the magical surroundings of a Cambridge college’s dining hall. As an Immerse student, you will experience formal dinner three times during your stay – once per week in Cambridge, as well as in an Oxford University college on the excursion day. Formal hall is truly a memorable occasion, so remember to bring some smart clothes!

Accommodation

Experience life as a Cambridge University undergraduate

All participants will be allocated to a college a few weeks before arriving, based on their dates and subject choice. If you would like to stay in the same location as a friend/sibling – please let us know and we will do our best to arrange this, where possible.
