Academic Content & Learning Objectives
Chemistry is a diverse science that concerns itself with the properties, structures, transformations and dynamics of all types of materials. The Cambridge Immerse Chemistry course not only provides a solid theoretical understanding of Chemistry, but also teaches students the ways in which the discipline is vital to improving our understanding of the natural world and enhancing human quality of life and the environment. Advances in chemistry are responsible for much of the understanding that underpins much of modern science, contributing directly to our everyday lives, from the food we consume and the medicines we take, to the environment in which we live. Our course gives both a strong grounding in chemical theory and explores some of the discipline’s most fascinating topics, including the uses of chemistry in biochemistry and molecular medicine
The Cambridge Immerse Chemistry course is both challenging and exciting, with students learning in small groups to ensure that each student’s needs are addressed. In addition to covering material that is studied at the A-level and IB-level, students are also taught advanced university- level topics in a way that is approachable and easy to understand.
The curriculum will also enable students to delve into specific fields of interest through a group project that culminates in a presentation to the rest of the class.
Within the interview skills workshops, students will gain an insight into the core skills required to successfully articulate their viewpoints in a pressured environment. These workshops focus upon developing the confidence and intellectual tenacity required to tackle some of the key questions that might be asked during interview, in addition to addressing debates surrounding some of the most pertinent issues within the discipline at the moment. The Interview Skills workshops are included within the fee for Cambridge Immerse, though attendance is optional.
Personal Statements (Optional)
Over the duration of the Cambridge Immerse course, students will have the opportunity to develop drafts of their personal statements required for access to universities across the world with the expertise and assistance of highly regarded tutors. Students learn techniques to concisely demonstrate their interest in a particular discipline. The Personal Statement workshops are included within the fee for Cambridge Immerse, though attendance is optional.
