Selwyn College Year 12 Summer School

The Summer School has been designed to challenge students academically and participants will have the opportunity to choose from a range of different subjects on offer. All lectures will be delivered by academic staff at Cambridge and will be designed to give participants an insight into what it is like to study at Cambridge and other top universities. Many of the courses/degree subjects that the University of Cambridge offers will be represented and a full programme of events will be circulated nearer the time.

As well as academic content, museum workshops and other subject-based sessions, participants will also experience life as a Cambridge student through a variety of social activities and by meeting current undergraduates who will act as mentors. The Summer School serves as an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into studying at top universities, receive help and support on applying to competitive universities, and meet peers from all over the UK.

Currently in Year 12 (or equivalent e.g. S5) Achieved at least 7s or As in at least 5 subjects at GCSEs (or equivalent e.g. National 5) Considering applying to the University of Cambridge or other top universities (e.g. Oxford and other Russell Group universities)
