If you're about to start post-16 education in Wales, England or Northern Ireland, or if you're going into S5 in Scotland and are state-educated then you're eligible to apply for the 2019 Cambridge University Students' Union (CUSU) Shadowing Scheme - and come to Cambridge to see what uni life is really like.
Prospective students come to Cambridge and spend time with a current undergraduate, studying a subject that they are interested in, who they 'shadow'.
Accommodation and meals within the Cambridge colleges are provided free of charge as part of the Shadowing Scheme. Travel can be reimbursed on a needs basis.
The idea is to give those who have little or no experience of university a taste of student life at Cambridge, in real time, with real people. We especially welcome applications from those who would be the first in their immediate family to attend university.
The Scheme will run on the following dates in 2019:
- Thursday 24th January - Saturday 26th January
- Thursday 31st January - Saturday 2nd February
- Thursday 7th February - Saturday 9th February
