Cambridge Earth Sciences Summer School (Ages 13-15)

The Earth sciences examine the planet at all levels, from the molecular to the continental. By combining physics, chemistry, biology, geology, geography, and palaeontology, we gain insights into the Earth's origin, development, and future.

Testimonials from our students

The best lesson I have had so far was at the beginning of the course when we studied Game Theory, and when we did presentations in class about shops or platforms that we had to imagine ourselves.

Portrait of a client

The best thing about the Medicine course was the interactivity of the lectures. My tutor was really interested in the subject, so I always felt like I could go up to her and ask her questions, whether they were about what we were learning or about other areas of biotechnology.

The course gave me an insight into how to make arguments in support of or against certain positions which is useful in law and the tutor assisted me in how to structure these arguments. I've enjoyed the company of having a roommate and that you make so many new friends.
