My Mentor is really a genius not only in science, but also in music. He has really great talent and I find him a fantastic person to learn from

Yanmin

Science Programme

During the time here, I have learnt many things. Not only on the science aspects, but on how we can lead a meaningful life. The learning atmosphere here is very strong; the teachers are brilliant and kind. Many things taught in the Programme are totally new for me. They are challenging and I feel really excited.

Kegan

Science Programme

Here in Cambridge we are encouraged to think critically instead of memorising things without absorbing the knowledge. Despite the fact that when we arrived we were shy, we have become more open-minded and gained a lot of confidence in our abilities. We have even set our sights on applying to Oxbridge as we have been inspired to aim high

Antoinette

Law Programme

I think it was really English and traditional to read Pride & Prejudice in the garden. The scent of the grass and the sunshine refreshed my mind, and I felt like I tend to learn a lot more in this way.
