Ebony - 2018

It was amazing. I went to Stratford to see Macbeth and the went to the sites where several nobel prize laureates made space discoveries. I also got to stay in one of the old colleges of Cambridge university, it was like Hogwarts!

Benedict - 2018

The reason I chose the Cambridge Summer Sciences Programme was not only the fact that is was run by Cambridge, but you get to choose a broad variety of topics, all taught by some of the leading researchers in their fields. 

The best part was that the programme is not open just to undergrads but also people who have already graduated, some of whom are experts in their own fields.

Nicole - 2017

I was motivated to participate in this program because of the excellent academic reputation of Cambridge University and my keen interest in all things science. The program itself provided me with numerous opportunities to interact with world-renowned academics, learn about different areas of science and explore the many museums and labs within the University.

In addition, living in the picturesque Newnham College allowed me to build lifelong friendships with other students from all around the world.
