What makes Cambridge so special?
Surrounding the river Cam in the east of England lies the world famous city of Cambridge. Students and visitors alike cannot help but be inspired by this centre of academic excellence. From the breathtaking architecture of its world-class university to the Silicon Fen, Cambridge is a place which melds a rich and far-stretching history with a bright and innovative future.
Cambridge was a joy. It was my fantasy. I loved it. I miss it.
Though the majority of Cambridge’s history is linked to the university, it actually stretches back much further. Archaeological evidence suggests that people settled in Cambridge as far back as the Bronze Age. It even became an important trading centre during the Roman times.
Cambridge is home to the second-oldest university in the english-speaking world, the University of Cambridge. The university includes King’s College Chapel, Cavendish Laboratory, and the Cambridge University Library, one of the largest legal deposit libraries in the world. The city’s skyline is dominated by several college buildings, along with the spire of the Our Lady and the English Martyrs Church, the chimney of Addenbrooke’s Hospital and St John’s College Chapel tower. Anglia Ruskin University, evolved from the Cambridge School of Art and the Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology, also has its main campus in the city.
We place a huge emphasis on creating a supportive and approachable environment at Cambridge Immerse. Our mentors are a team of friendly, specially trained graduates and undergraduates from Cambridge University or Oxford University, who help our participants quickly settle into the programme. The mentors have first hand experience with a variety of academic and non-academic issues and are therefore in the best position to offer friendly, confidential one-to-one advice. It’s an unrivalled support network that we’re incredibly proud of.
During the programme, participants are treated to lectures by a series of well-known and well-respected speakers. From politicians to philosophers, the speaker lecture series at Cambridge Immerse is an opportunity for students to gain insights into topics not often on the school syllabus.
