by great guests
At Immerse Education’s Cambridge academic summer programmes, participants have the unique opportunity to study the subject they are passionate about in university-level programmes that are designed and taught by expert tutors. Participants are encouraged to stretch themselves beyond the boundaries of a school curriculum and to delve into completely new and challenging content. The Immerse Education academic syllabuses and our expert faculty are what set our academic programmes apart.
Every summer, we are delighted to welcome motivational guest speakers from a variety of inspiring backgrounds, and students will hear from a different guest speaker each week.

I had a great experience with learning about a new subject that I had no idea about before the programme and gaining an understanding of it in depth. My tutor has taught me using real-life examples which have really helped my understanding of business management as a subject.
The best part of the programme is… the whole experience! For example, waking up in the morning ready for class, having breakfast in the dining hall, then having afternoon sessions and working on projects and then enjoying the social and cultural aspects of the programme, like the visiting speakers – they’ve been really inspiring.
I feel I’ve learned a lot at a really high level because the tutors actually teach at Oxford and Cambridge, so they really know what it’s like to be a student here and they understand what we should know in order to attend university here.
