The Pembroke-King’s Programme (PKP) offers an exceptional opportunity for outstanding undergraduates at universities around to the world to experience Cambridge student life over eight weeks, the length of a regular University term.
Living in Pembroke or King’s Colleges, students choose three courses from the fifty on offer, including courses in the arts, social sciences, business and management, humanities and sciences. All courses are ‘Cambridge’ in style, content and standard. Students can also apply to take a supervision, in which an individual student meets with a professor weekly to work on a series of research-based papers, or a longer dissertation, in the student’s major subject area.
Outside class, a diverse and fun range of social, cultural and sporting activities is on offer, together with exciting travel options around the UK and Europe. Included in the programme costs are tuition fees for three courses, usually worth 9-12 credits, housing, a partial meal plan and Formal Halls, a four-day visit to Scotland and a daytrip to London. Four scholarships covering the full tuition fee are also available.
Applications are welcomed from students who can demonstrate academic ambition and proficiency in English. Competition for places is intense, so early application is advised.
