Experience Cambridge is a shadowing scheme for high school students from Czechia and Slovakia. Get to experience am all-expenses-paid visit to Cambridge to explore your subject, meet like-minded people, and learn about the university admissions and life at UK universities.
As the saying goes, it is better to experience something once than to hear about it a thousand times. And so we would like to offer you the opportunity to visit Cambridge this February and get a taste of student life at one of the world’s top universities. Following a selection process intended to mimic the application process of the university itself (see below), successful applicants will be invited to Cambridge, where they will be mentored and guided by current Czech and Slovak students studying at the university. If successful, you will be given the unique chance to experience lectures and academic supervisions, to tour the city, visit different historical colleges, attend a formal dinner and much more!
Our selection process consists of two parts and takes place throughout November and December. It is made with the intention of mimicking the University’s admissions process.
Part 1: The electronic application form
If you match the criteria above, begin by filling in the form on this website. The deadline for submitting your answers is the 30th of November.
For the second part of the selection process, we will pick the most enthusiastic, hard-working students whose answers in the application form clearly demonstrate a passion for the subject they are most interested in pursuing in the future.
Part 2: The interview
The interviews will take place in mid-December via a video call. They will be carried out in English. The main purpose of these interviews is to get to know you, to learn more about your academic and non-academic achievements and your motivation, so you have nothing to worry about, just persuade us that you are truly passionate about the area of your interest. No preparation is necessary, but you should come expecting some academically challenging questions.
