Year 13 Northern Ireland Shadowing Scheme
Please note that applications have now closed for the 2019 event.
Are you a Year 13 state school student in Northern Ireland, and considering Cambridge? If so, then apply for our Shadowing Scheme for a chance to find out what it’s really like to study here!
Pembroke College and Corpus Christi College are delighted to be running a three night Shadowing Scheme for students living in Northern Ireland, giving successful applicants the opportunity to:
- Stay in College
- Meet current students
- Attend some lectures
- Find out more about Cambridge – both as a city, and a university
Students who gain a place on this residential will be partnered with a current student whilst they are here with us, to get a real insight in to what life is like at Pembroke and Cambridge.
- Sunday 3rd – Wednesday 6th February 2019
Applications have now closed for 2019.
