Throughout the Immerse Education Maths summer school programme for 16-18 year olds, you will be introduced to university level mathematics, reside at a Cambridge University College, and develop new skills as you work through a carefully constructed syllabus. You will be provided with stimulating insights to help decide whether you should pursue studying maths at university level. You’ll also engage in constructive mathematics as well as practical maths, and come away from the course knowing how the theories you learn apply in the context of the real world.read more
Learn about the practical applications of mathematics within the context of constructive maths
Participate in careful, rigorous and rewarding mathematical analysis through iterative methods
Understand complex conditional probabilities using theories such as the “Monty Hall problem”
Experience authentic student life in University of Cambridge colleges
Interactive learning in small groups (av: 1:7) from expert university tutors
Meet other motivated high school students from all over the world
Dive into the ubiquitous nature of matrices as they are represented in equations, geometric transformations, complex numbers, and even particles used in Physics! An advantageous skill when undertaking any scientific discipline, you will start from linear systems, develop the formalism of matrices and transform them using the Gauss-Jordan method.
Explore the concept and definitions of numbers like Integers, Rationals and Reals. You will engage with key definitions such as sequences, series, limits of functions, and infinite series. By tying in real-world applications, such as how infinite series allow computers to calculate any kind of function, you’ll learn to not only ‘write mathematics’, but also start to understand how maths affects today’s world.
Vector spaces are the way to see the underlying geometry that spontaneously arises from algebra! You’ll learn to deal with higher-dimensional spaces, where your eyes cannot see, but your mind can, through algebra. This generality is needed for instance in physics, where the theory of relativity requires a four-dimensional vector space.
This will be the most diverse and exciting day of the programme. A session devoted to enabling both you and your peers to share your own mathematical interests, develop useful presentation skills including ‘writing’ mathematics, and receive insightful feedback.

During the Immerse maths summer school, you will:
All projects are supported by your expert academic tutors, and can take the form of an essay, presentation or practical project. The project reaches its pinnacle when you present it to your academic peers and tutors at the end of the programme.
It’s an incredible opportunity to develop your independent research skills and specialist subject knowledge.
A tangible and highly valued takeaway from the Immerse academic programmes is the written participant feedback that our expert tutors write for each of their students.
This an incredibly useful insight into your performance during the programme and provides recommendations as to how you can develop your understanding of your chosen subject beyond the summer school.
Cambridge is internationally renowned for its beautiful college architecture and its prestigious and rich history. You will live and study in your own individual room in one of the following Cambridge University colleges.
