Read more to learn about some of the summer school activities organised for our participants.

GUIDED PUNTING IN CAMBRIDGE

Guided Punting

Punting is a truly timeless, slightly eccentric, quintessentially Cambridge, idyllic pleasure. Participants will spend the afternoon drifting down the River Cam, passing along the world famous Cambridge College Backs from the comfort of a traditional Cambridge Punt. King’s College Chapel, The Wren Library at Trinity College, and the Bridge of Sighs, are just some of the famous Cambridge landmarks you can expect to see during this chauffeured punt tour.

Fireside Chat with Mentors

Fireside Chat with Mentors

Participants are each allocated a Summer Mentor. Friendly and approachable, all of the mentors are here to ensure that you’re having an enjoyable, safe and rewarding time. In a casual fireside chat, students will be able to ask mentors to provide valuable insight into university-life. Since mentors are actually in the process of studying the degree themselves, it’s a really valuable experience for you to get your questions answered. Come prepared!

Excursion to Oxford

Explore Oxford – Cambridge’s rival!

Experience the other side! A day trip to Cambridge’s ‘rival’ university will take you across some of Oxford’s most well known colleges and landmarks such as the famous circular Radcliffe Camera Library, and Bodleian Library (one of the oldest libraries in Europe). You’ll have free time to explore the university city in small groups.

MEET LEADING PERSONALITIES

Guest Speakers

Each year we are delighted to welcome a diverse range of eminent speakers as part of our guest speaker series. Academics, politicians, sports personalities, industry experts, are each able to provide a fascinating insight into each of their respective careers – providing you with ample inspiration.
