Pembroke-King’s Programme – Summer School
Programme dates: Saturday 7 July – Sunday 19 August 2018
Applications open in October!
Experience this summer the unique ‘Cambridge’ style teaching in small groups with a focus on intense classroom interaction, discussion and individual feedback and support.
The Pembroke-King’s Programme (PKP) offers an exceptional opportunity for undergraduates and graduates at universities around the world to experience Cambridge student life over six weeks.
Living in Pembroke or King’s Colleges in the town centre, you select three courses from subjects in the Economics, Business, Finance, Management, Social Sciences, Sciences, Maths and Arts and Humanities: some examples are listed at the bottom of this page.
To develop your research and project management skills, you can choose the Independent Supervision option based on your academic interest: you meet with a Cambridge expert weekly to work on a series of research-based papers, or a longer dissertation. This option is especially recommended for students intending to pursue research or graduate studies.
Included in the programme costs are tuition fees for three courses, usually worth 9-12 credits, accommodation, a partial meal plan and three Formal Halls. Outside of class, a diverse and fun range of social, cultural and sporting activities are on offer.
After the summer, you can maintain your Cambridge connection through lifelong membership of the Pembroke College Circle.
