The academic programme
Plenary lecture course P01: Survival
One special subject course per week
A choice of workshops and visits
The University of Cambridge receives global recognition for the quality of its scientific research and education. Science at Cambridge combines the breadth and flexibility with the opportunity to study in depth at the frontiers of knowledge. The Science Summer School draws on the expertise of a range of senior academic advisors across a variety of scientific fields.
The programme acknowledges that there is now no hard boundary between the different sciences: exciting advances are being made by interdisciplinary approaches. We draw on the expertise of a range of senior academic advisors across a variety of scientific fields in assembling this unique and exciting programme.
The Science Summer School is aimed at a broad audience. Undergraduates and graduates in sciences as well as teachers and other professionals are welcomed. For those of you with a strong interest in science but little formal science training, we advise that you carefully read the books and articles suggested by the course directors.
Participants choose one course for each week they attend. Courses P02-P05 are during Term I, week 1, P06-P09 are during Term I, week 2, P10-P13 are during Term II week 1 and P14-P17 are during Term II week 2.
Plenary lecture course
All participants will be registered for a course of plenary lectures collectively entitled Survival. These lectures constitute a wonderful opportunity to learn from acknowledged experts in their field.
Workshops and visits
We plan a number of workshops and visits to the Botanic Gardens, to museums, and to institutes and laboratories in Cambridge. Workshops and visits may offer an insight into ‘cutting edge’ research, or a chance to reassess subjects and scientists you know a little about. Details will be sent to students.
A series of evening lectures extends the plenary series, providing introductions to additional aspects of science at Cambridge and beyond.
