Are you a Year 12 student who is fascinated by people and how we interact with the world and each other?

Would you like an opportunity to work with Cambridge University academics and students to create a piece of university-style work, incorporating elements of the arts, humanities and social sciences – from Classics to Languages, Archaeology to Politics?

The Churchill and Trinity Colleges AHSS Residential will bring to Cambridge budding Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences students, like you, from August 1 to 4. Attendees will experience university life: from staying in student accommodation, to experiencing taster supervisions, lectures and seminars, to researching, writing and submitting an essay. Participants will select an interdisciplinary topic to focus on throughout the residential, which will enable exploration of multiple possible degree subjects – and introduce subjects you may have never even heard of! There will be opportunities to speak to and work with current undergraduates, have all of your questions answered, and truly immerse yourself in every aspect of student life.

The residential is free of charge and open to applications from UK state-educated students in Year 12 or equivalent.

Trinity’s Director of Admissions, Dr Glen Rangwala, is excited to be leading one of the interdisciplinary topics on the residential: “The University of Cambridge is a world-leading centre for the study of Humanities, and we want to show prospective students everything Trinity and Churchill have to offer to undergraduates studying them. We’re looking forward to welcoming participants to Cambridge for a week that is sure to be intellectually stimulating. We’ll be collaborating as a mix of academics and students who share an enthusiasm for thinking about and applying new perspectives to big ideas.”
