Immerse in Cambridge 2019: Academic summer programmes held in Cambridge University colleges

Immerse academic programmes take place at inspiring locations across the UK, including colleges of Cambridge University, and are designed and taught by tutors from world leading universities. Participants attend from around the world, and our carefully designed curricula not only stimulate students’ intellectual curiosity and challenge their expectations in their own ability, but will also motivate and support them as they embark on decisions about their university studies, and future goals. Immerse alumni have proceeded to enrol at world leading universities, to found innovative organisations, and to become leaders in their respective fields.

Our 16-18 year old programmes are intellectually stimulating and intensive, and are designed to provide a unique taster of what it’s like to study a subject at an advanced level, building on the knowledge acquired at secondary school. Our 13-15 year old programmes are designed to ignite students’ interest and help them better understand what subjects they should be pursuing at a higher level. Choose from over thirty subject options, including Computer Science, Economics, Medicine, Law and Engineering.

Immerse is accredited by the British Accreditation Council, and was awarded a Queen’s Award in 2018.
