WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY...

“The event has definitely boosted my confidence in general whether this be through talking to people and interacting with others or just knowing much more about university and Cambridge as a whole; this confidence has lead to me being more excited rather than apprehensive about sixth form and further education.”

Covid-19 and the Language Residential

UPDATED: March 2021 

The residential will be online for summer 2021. The application form asks students to indicate the feasibility of attending an online version of the programme, as well as their access to suitable internet connections and devices. Students who are unsure whether their internet connection and/or devices will be suitable are still encouraged to apply, and we can look into alternatives on a case-by-case basis for the selected students in these circumstances.

The residential is designed to encourage academically able students from areas of the country where students are less likely to enter higher education to consider making applications to top universities, including the University of Cambridge.

You can complete the application form here. The deadline to apply for the Languages Residential is midday on Friday, 30th April 2021. Late applications will not be accepted.
