What Do Our Alumni Say?
Malaysia Alumni Academic Insights, Architecture
Testimonial quote icon

I learned about immerse from researching because my mother wanted me to join a summer program. Last year I went to Oxford, so my mother wanted to go somewhere different this year. So we decided to come to Cambridge. I think my experience so far is going really well because I really like all the teachers mentors and I really love my friends.

I’m doing architecture and right now we’re learning about planning a building and making a model of what we designed.My favorite part of the experience is making friends and doing the activities because I feel like it’s really fun and the mentors really work hard to make it possible. Before coming to Immerse, I was worried about making friends. I was quite introverted, so I’m scared to go up to people and talk to them. But now I feel like I’ve made many friends and I’m really happy about that.
