Cambridge SU Shadowing Scheme 2021 (Year 12, application deadline 15th Nov 2020)

Do you have little or no history of university in your family?

Maybe you have reservations or worries about applying to Cambridge?

Every year hundreds of students in Year 12 or equivalent come to Cambridge University to 'shadow' a current undergraduate and experience life in Cambridge.

This will be the twenty-first year of the Cambridge SU Shadowing Scheme!

Cambridge University are looking for students with little or no history of University in their family to take part in the 2021 scheme, a four-week online programme that will encompass everything from studying, societies and applying to Cambridge.

The Scheme is designed to give you the information, support and confidence you need to make the best decision for you.
