By the river Cam in summer
Applications for the University of Cambridge’s summer schools – run in conjunction with the Sutton Trust – are now open. Offering twenty five different subject streams across four weeks of July and August, these week-long residentials give students a real insight into what life at the University is like. The residentials are specifically designed to increase the educational opportunities of gifted students from disadvantaged backgrounds - please check the eligibility criteria. All costs for the week (and travel to and from Cambridge) are covered, so there is a zero cost to participants.
More information about the application process can be found on the website. As well as covering traditional subjects, the summer schools also include a number of new topics that students may enjoy. Details of these subjects can be found via the links below:
- Anglo Saxon, Norse, and Celtic
- Archaeology and Biological Anthropology
- Asian and Middle Eastern Studies
- History of Art
- HSPS: Sociology and Social Anthropology
- Theology, Religious Studies, and Philosophy
Applications are open until the 11 March 2016 and should be completed online through the Sutton Trust's website.
