The core elements of the course will be delivered on the college campus, including the extracurricular activities; however, the programme also includes several trips around Cambridge and further afield.

The course is designed to help them gain an overview of the higher education system in the UK, enable them to make intelligent decisions about universities and courses in the UK, understand the admissions process, and explore the core differences between their own education system and that of the UK.In addition, the course is designed to develop core skills that are sought by universities and employers, such as critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, adaptability, and presentation skills – all within an international context, but with a focus on the UK education system. The course is designed as an international conference for students to develop their intercultural communication skills. During the two weeks of the course students, in small groups, will work on developing projects and thematic ideas, as well as attending a series of workshops and talks, given by inspiring experts in their field.
