The residential is for high-achieving Year 12 students who would like to find out more about studying at university, and particularly those who have little family tradition of university entry.
The residential is free to attend and participants will be provided with accommodation and food for the duration of the residential alongside all academic sessions.
Participants will spend three days living in Magdalene College and learning like a Cambridge student. Attendees will participate in lectures, seminars, workshops and practical sessions led by Cambridge academics, as well as spending time with current students.
The residential will run from Monday 30 March to Wednesday 1 April 2020.
Applicants should be interested in subjects related to Cambridge courses. The residential aims to give an overview of the subject range available to study at Cambridge and is a great opportunity to investigate a new subject that attendees may not have considered before and see how subjects crossover and are interrelated.
Apply for the 2020 ResidentialApply Now!
The closing date for applications is 11.59pm on Monday 17 February 2020, after which no further applications will be considered.
Applications need to be supported by a current teacher and require the permission of a parent/guardian to attend, as well as your school's permission if the residential falls in term-time.
Successful applicants will be notified via email by the end of February 2020.
In previous years this event has been heavily oversubscribed, unfortunately not all applications will be successful.
If you already know you want to apply to Cambridge, we recommend you come and visit the University on an Open Day rather than applying to attend the residential.
Applications for the residential (whether successful or not) will have no influence on the outcome of a future application to the University of Cambridge.
