Cambridge College Summer School enables students to live and study in the world famous university city of Cambridge. Our Cambridge College campus is ideally located to give students access to the city centre and university colleges. The summer programme is designed to give students an idea of what it is like to study at university, meet other students from around the world, and explore the famous city of Cambridge.
Each week, Cambridge College Summer School students will receive 20 hours of tuition in their chosen course. All courses employ a creative and communicative methodology, to enable students to develop their 21st skills. At the end of each week, students collaborate to give small group presentations to demonstrate their learning. All courses feature a micro-internship, through which they will have hands-on experience of working in their chosen subject.
At Cambridge College, our students participate in a micro-internship in their chosen subject. This means they take part in a practical excursion that explores working in their field of study. For example, if you study Medicine you may visit a medical centre to meet its staff and examine its facilities; if you study Business you may visit a prominent Cambridge-based business and discuss with professionals how it operates.
- Get real practical experience in your chosen subject
- Visit real professional locations
- Meet real professionals
- Find out what it’s like to work in your chosen subject
- Build your university application by having real-life practice in your subject
On these micro-internship placements, our students visit real places of work, and meet real professionals. In these visits, students will gain practical experience in working in their chosen subject. The objective of the micro-internship programme is that students not only develop their understanding of their subject, but also gain an insight into what their field of study involves at a professional level.
In building your university application profile, it is important to demonstrate that you have a broad range of interests both inside and outside of school. In particular, it is useful to show that you have taken steps to explore your chosen university subject, and that you have developed an understanding of what that field of study entails in both academic and professional dimensions.
All students will be given access to a cutting-edge online learning platform called ‘The Future Skills Programme’, developed by Eton College. This is a series of short online courses focused on better communication, leadership and university preparation which develop soft skills, practical skills and an entrepreneurial mindset to help students succeed in life. This is called "Eton X Self-Study Module".
The social programme at Cambridge College enables students to explore the city of Cambridge and spend time with their new friends from around the world.
There are pre-arranged activities including sport, museum visits, and punting; as well as opportunities for students to have leisure time in the city centre.
A wide range of evening events is also arranged for the students to maximise their experience. These events include Formal College Dining, theatre trips, and a Formal Graduation at the conclusion of the course.
The excursion programme provides students with a break at the weekend and a chance to explore some of the UK’s top tourist destinations. During a two-week course, students will go on two full day excursions. These offer a mix of cultural and social experiences. Previous destinations have included London, Cambridge and Bath.
All students live in our purpose built student accommodation, a short walk from the centre of Cambridge and our Cambridge College campuses (St. Andrew’s and Sancton Wood) where lessons and meals take place.
The rooms are modern, single, en-suite study rooms. Male and females students are accommodated in separate areas, with shared communal spaces.
All accommodation and facilities are regularly cleaned throughout the stay to ensure the highest standard of hygiene is maintained. A laundry service is available once per week to all students.
The safety and wellbeing of all students is our number one priority. Students are accommodated on-site in secure and comfortable boarding houses during their stay. The friendly and caring staff team is available 24 hours per day to support students, which includes dedicated and experienced welfare staff, such as House Parents and Welfare Managers. There is a comprehensive Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and procedures in place to which all employees, volunteers, and contractors are expected to adhere.
The Company running these courses pride themselves on offering the best possible support to students, confirmed by an official Area of Strength in Safeguarding Under 18s, Premises and Facilities, and Care of Students by the British Council accreditation scheme.

NATURAL SCIENCES COURSE
Natural Sciences gives students a better understanding of the natural world, from a variety of scientific perspectives. Students will explore new areas of science, building their existing scientific knowledge.
Natural Sciences is the perfect course for students with a passion for understanding how the universe works. During the course, students will focus on three core science subjects: chemistry, physics and biology. These subjects are studied with the objective of better understanding the laws of the physical world around us, as well as developing the English language skills necessary to describe them.
- Key Skills Developed: Communication Skills, Analytical Skills, Research Skills, Analysis, Critical Thinking
- EtonX: Exclusive EtonX Future Skills Online Course Included
- Suitable for Further Study or Career: Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Life Science
Through its interdisciplinary approach, Natural Sciences at Oxford College is a perfect first step towards future study within the sciences. Not only will students leave the course with a deeper understanding of the three core science subjects, but they will develop a range of skills transferable to a vast number of further study and career opportunities, including analytical problem solving, teamwork, and effective communication skills in written, verbal and presentational forms.
Natural Sciences enables students to develop a better understanding of the natural world, by giving equal attention to chemistry, biology and physics throughout the course. Through this approach, students can explore new areas of science and build on their existing scientific knowledge further. We also want students to develop a newfound confidence in articulating their thoughts and findings so as part of our Time to Shine programme, students will also learn how to present scientific findings to an audience.
It is required at least an intermediate (B1) English level.
Dates are: from Sunday 10th July to Saturday 6th August
