[/two_fifth][three_fifth_last]We offer participants a choice of a range of subjects, from the arts to the sciences. All the subjects taught at Cambridge Immerse are taught by highly regarded tutors, all of whom are either current or past tutors or postgraduate members of Cambridge University or Oxford University. Our rigorous vetting process ensures that all students are taught not only by the most competent and knowledgeable tutors in their discipline, but also that the tutors are engaging and supportive.
Participants are encouraged to delve into and explore the current debates and issues within their chosen discipline in carefully planned tutorials that emulate the unique Oxbridge system of tutor-student engagement and debate; an approach that goes beyond the superficial and provides unique insights that are both refreshing and intellectually stimulating.

[three_fifth_last]The Cambridge Immerse schedule is packed with a wide range of unique academic and extracurricular activities.
Participants start off the day with breakfast in the main college dining hall, with a wide spread of continental and hot breakfast choices available. This is followed by the first academic session of the day, which takes place in a seminar format. Participants are then guided to lunch at some of Cambridge’s delicious sandwich bars and cafés, and are welcome to explore the city in small groups. After lunch, academic sessions continue in the format of small tutorial groups or workshops. After all the core academic sessions are finished, students are treated to one of a wide range of excursions and cultural activities, including punting, museum visits and sports activities. A three course dinner in the college dining hall is then followed by an evening social event to help participants wind down and socialise after a packed day.
The timetable shown to the side offers an insight into the typical daily schedule, although this may vary depending on the events planned on the given day.
