Where will Cambridge Immerse take you?
Cambridge Immerse is an inspiring and transformative experience that can have a profound effect on the participants that join the programme. Many students tell us that Cambridge Immerse helped them gain a clearer understanding of what they wanted to study and where they hoped to be. With many of our students going on to achieve wonderful feats all around the world, we wanted to highlight some fantastic stories about past participants.
Not only did Cambridge Immerse convince me to study International Relations, it made me fall in love with Cambridge.
I attended Cambridge Immerse in 2014 to do the International Relations course, and I absolutely loved it. I found that Cambridge Immerse was the perfect balance between academics and fun. First and foremost, we were able to delve into subjects we may not have had the opportunity to study at school. The fact that I was able to take International Relations for two weeks solidified my decision to apply for such a course at university as well. This was the first time I was introduced to Oxbridge-style supervisions, whereby teaching happens in small groups based on your presentation of your work to further challenge yourself. So not only did Cambridge Immerse convince me to study International Relations, but it also made me fall in love with Cambridge.
The mentors, who were Cambridge undergraduates themselves, were incredibly helpful and I am so grateful for the advice and guidance they gave me.
I made many new friends during my two weeks, most of whom I still stay in touch with to this day! In fact, three of us who attended in 2014 returned to Cambridge Immerse in the summer of 2017 to work as mentors ourselves.
The two weeks that I attended Cambridge Immerse turned out to be the best weeks of my entire summer that year. The friends I made, the ability to explore a subject that I enjoyed so freely, and the opportunity to live in a fantastic city like Cambridge – well, I don’t know what else to say except that this is not an experience you’ll want to miss out on.
