A unique residential experience in a Cambridge University college.
The ‘Cambridge Immerse’ programme takes place in two of Cambridge University’s most beautiful, centrally located colleges, Queens’ College and Christ’s College. You’ll reside in these sanctuaries of peace in the middle of the historic university city of Cambridge, renown for hosting many eminent academics over its centuries of existence.
All participants will be accommodated in their own individual bedrooms on the central college site. All rooms are clean and comfortable rooms with high speed internet access. Corridors or staircases separate male and female students, and bathrooms are either en-suite or shared between just a few participants of the same gender.
Supervision and safety
Students are supervised by an experienced on-site Programme Director and a team of ‘Mentors’ who are a team of trained undergraduates from Cambridge University. The college is monitored 24 hours per day, both by the college porters and security cameras. Cambridge Immerse has a rigorous Safeguarding Policy.
Queens’ College is one of the oldest and largest colleges of the university, founded in 1448 by Margaret of Anjou (the Queen of Henry VI, who founded King’s College), and has some of the most recognisable buildings in Cambridge. The college spans both sides of the river Cam, with the world famous Mathematical Bridge connecting the two sides.
The college is noted for producing a plethora of notable personalities, including heads of government and politicians from various countries, religious leaders, astronauts and Oscar nominees. Among its distinguished alumni include Erasmus, Stephen Fry, Abba Eban and T.H.White.
Christ’s College was first established as God’s House in 1437 by William Byngham, and was refounded as Christ’s College in 1505 by order of a Royal Charter from the King. The College is often described as an oasis of calm in the heart of the city, including beautiful herbaceous borders and tranquil gardens laid out over four courts.
The college is noted for producing two of Cambridge’s most famous alumni; in 1625, the College admitted John Milton, one of the greats of ‘English’ literature; in 1828, the college admitted Charles Darwin, the renowned scientist who published ‘On the Origin of Species’ some thirty years later.
