My subject area was chemistry and chemical engineering. I was concerned about the course being virtual as I found it difficult to learn from my online lessons prior to the course and that meant there was no face to face learning. However, once I had started the course, as the lectures for my subject were one on one, it meant that it was really personalised and that there was a lot of attention on my understanding.
I thought my tutor was very accommodating and helpful, he explained complex topics in easy to digest ways and was very patient with me when I struggled in understanding something.
The class was encouraged not to jump impulsively to conclusions, but to think logically, applying all the skills and knowledge we had learned in the previous days. I truly believe that throughout the two weeks, through court visits, mock trial, explanations of the law and debates in class, the course instilled a sense of passion for law in me, which I truly didn’t expect to happen.
An incredible 2 weeks. I loved how we had access to very experienced tutors and Oxbridge style tutorials. The models discussed for Economics were beyond the A-level syllabus and were very interesting.
It was such an incredible experience to be able to learn directly from a Cambridge University tutor. She knew so much about her subject, but was able to teach me advanced topics in a way that was really easy to understand.
From the very beginning I really did enjoy talking and listening to everything that my tutor had to say. He was able to alter the course for me and that was really beneficial for me. Throughout every zoom he would stop consistently to ask me questions and to see if there was anything I didn’t understand.
My personal tutor was unutterably incredible. I am most grateful to him for making remarks to me about certain mistakes of mine, which I had to emphasize, and directing my gaze to where to look, and how to communicate a certain message unequivocally. I learned many new ideas from him, which I only thought about, but did not study in depth. He repeatedly gave me advice on what to do next time I write such a project or apply to a university. Certainly thanks to him I am different now and much better than when I started this programme!!!
Immerse was the best two weeks of my life! I loved every minute of it, and made so many friends from all over the world. I am so grateful to my tutor, as well as to the most awesome mentor team! I really felt part of the family.
