Thoughts on PKP
My experience of PKP was absolutely incredible. The eight-week programme was far more than a series of intellectually challenging lectures in Cambridge. PKP proved to be the ideal combination of rigorous academic courses and fun social activities, all within a beautiful and historic city.
I thoroughly enjoyed the courses that I took during PKP. The knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructors, as well as the opportunity to work with students from all over the world, made for an enriching academic experience.
I was also glad to be able to indulge in a range of fun cultural and social activities. I enjoyed punting down the River Cam, watching Shakespeare’s plays, trying traditional English tea and dressing up for Formal Halls. On the weekends, I took trips to different parts of the UK, some of which were organized by the capable and friendly Programme Assistants. But the highlight of my PKP experience was definitely my piano recital “One Night of Chopin” at Pembroke College, which was organized and supported by PKP. Please feel free to check out the news item of the event on the Pembroke College website!
Cambridge certainly lived up to its reputation as an amazing place to study. The memories I made there and the friendships I forged will not be forgotten for a long time to come.
