Our Alumni Says

Being at Cambridge was an experience like no other. I chose to attend this programme because I wanted to develop my abilities in coding and see whether I could handle the challenges of computer science. My favourite part of the lessons was being able to discuss different ways to solve problems in code and be able to look at a way to fix an error from a different perspective. I really enjoyed being able to work on mini coding projects along the way too. Learning in-depth about a subject and then having to apply that knowledge was the most beneficial aspect of the programme. I had the responsibility of producing a piece of work and that really helped me to collate all the notes I had made and really consolidate everything I had learnt.

Sample Natural Science Modules

To see how the Online Insights programme is structured, please view the timetable.
  • Module 1 - Exploring the Diversity of Life: Evolution and Biodiversity

    From the process of natural selection to the classification of species, participants will explore how life has diversified and adapted to various environments over millions of years. By examining real-world examples and engaging in the most topical debates on the topic, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the mechanisms driving the evolution of life on Earth.
  • Module 2 - Microbiology and Cell Biology

    Participants will journey into the realm of microscopic life and cellular structures. Through the study of microbiology and cell biology, participants will uncover the fascinating world of microorganisms, their role in ecosystems, and their impact on human health. By observing microscope slides, participants will gain practical insights into the building blocks of life and the hidden intricacies of the microbial world.
  • Module 3 - Geology and Earth Science

    From plate tectonics and rock formations to geological hazards, participants will gain insights into the processes that have sculpted our planet’s landscape. Through interactive simulations and using data from sophisticated analytical techniques such as mass spectrometry, participants will unravel the geological history of Earth and its influence on the natural world.
  • Module 4 - Personal Project

    Throughout the programme, participants will engage in a personal research project designed to consolidate their learning and showcase their scientific research skills. Guided by a provided brief, participants will conduct independent research, gather data, analyze their findings, and prepare a presentation demonstrating their understanding of key concepts in natural sciences.
