CSP has been the greatest experience of my life. Every day was something new, unique, intriguing, and incredible. The trip to Paris has been equally if not more incredible than Cambridge. The rich history and culture is priceless and every excursion we take is worth the entire trip!

Many thanks for a memorable experience at Cambridge! They were definitely three of the best weeks of my life. The experiences I had as a member of the programme were uniformly fantastic. The courses were great. The organized activities were fun. And the trips were enriching.

There is simply no other program as complete as the Cambridge Scholars’ Programme. It’s extremely fun, but also intellectually stimulating. It has the perfect balance of classes, free time, extracurriculars, and travel. The tutors are all brilliant, and the deputy directors are so friendly and fun to be around.  I benefited from the trips by becoming more culturally enriched. I saw the Rosetta Stone, Stonehenge, the Roman Baths, toured Parliament, went to a play at the West End, and so much more.

Carlie E.
Deerfield Academy; Attended CSP 2012

Judging from my friend’s feedback who attended another programme, the classes here are a lot more enriching, and no other programme can compare with our trips because we just go to so many places, even without including Paris. I’ve learnt a tonne from the courses and trips, and been exposed to a whole new style of living. Yes I would recommend it because the courses and the trips are a lot better than what’s on offer from other summer schools. It was my first summer school, and it couldn’t have been better!

Like most people I didn’t know anyone going but this was fine - everyone was so friendly and the early activities and trips ensured we quickly bonded. I have made many fantastic friends across the world that I will definitely keep in contact with in the future.

I  truly had the best summer of my life! I changed this summer: I got a lot more confident, I have grown so much through this experience and I feel a lot more mature. I’ve gained so many great new friends that I still keep in touch with and I’ll visit them all someday. I would recommend CSP to all my friends!

How We Will Keep You Safe

  • Getting To Cambridge

    Staff will be at London Heathrow Airport to meet all students flying in on arrivals day, with complimentary transport being provided to Cambridge on our luxury private bus. Staff and students wear particular clothing and photos are provided to help each identify the other. There will be optional group flights from New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, each with a staff member on board.

  • General Rules

    Male and female students live in gender-segregated accommodation at the University of Cambridge. Students are not allowed to visit bedrooms of the opposite gender – but there are common rooms for mingling. Staff members live on site, on a staircase with students of their gender. We have a zero-tolerance policy on alcohol and drugs.  After dinner there is a curfew and students must be signed in with staff on an evening activity.

  • Staff Members On Duty 24/7

    The senior staff have a combined 31 years experience attending and running summer schools in Cambridge. The senior staff lead all trips and the Mentors. Students are expected to stay with their Mentors at all times on trips unless in a definite safe environment. Multiple phone numbers are provided in case of an emergency.

CSP is such an amazing programme  -  I am so glad I took this opportunity.  I was really scared that I wouldn’t make friends or have a good time, but as soon as I arrived I realized that I was wrong and had nothing to worry about.  I met the most wonderful group of people and made so many friends from all over the world. The staff organized everything    so well.   I could see how much effort was put into this programme and it definitely paid off. Every day in Cambridge was a blessing. I became a lot more confident, organized, and mature. The classes helped to enrich my knowledge. Enrolling in CSP was the best decision of my life.

My parents were worried about sending me alone to a foreign country, but were calmed when they learned that you would be meeting us at the airport. If anything, my parents were slightly annoyed by CSP when I returned home because that’s all I would talk about! But really, they appreciated the programme for educating me, keeping me safe, and providing me with lifelong friendships and memories. I would wholeheartedly recommend CSP to friends (in fact, I already have). Not only did I get to see tons of beautiful landmarks, works of arts, and monuments, but I also made incredible friendships.
