Cambridge University Residential

Cambridge University Residential

A group of our year 12 SJR Honours Academy students were fortunate to be selected for a wonderful residential visit to Cambridge University as part of the HE+ programme.

Students had a real taste of university life staying at Murray Edwards College, attending academic sessions, meeting students and exploring the city.

Students enjoyed lectures on a wide range of academia, ranging from Witchcraft to neuroblastoma.

They sampled the facilities and met like-minded students from other Northwest Colleges.

For many, it offered an insight into the application process.

They also gained invaluable advice from admission tutors and students at Cambridge.
