Cambridge Immerse University Preparation Series
During all of the Cambridge Immerse programmes our participants can benefit from a University Preparation Series designed to help students in their applications to the world’s top universities.
Within our carefully designed 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 programme fee, though attendance is 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 the trained mentor team. Students learn techniques to concisely express their interest in a particular discipline, crafting a compelling personal statement that showcases achievements and interest in a subject. The Personal Statement consultations are included within the programme fee, though attendance is optional.
Participants will have the opportunity to develop drafts of their personal statements, crafting a polished written document that provides an accurate reflection of their academic and extracurricular achievements to date.
Certain subjects, such as Medicine and Law, require that prospective applicants to UK universities complete an aptitude test such as the LNAT (National Admissions Test for Law) or UKCAT (UK Clinical Aptitude Test). Optional sessions provide participants of Cambridge Immerse with guidance and insights into the best practices for preparing for these tests.
