Students choose 2 subjects from a list of 15-20 to study with expert tutors. The full list can be found on our CASP website (coming soon) but will include some or all of the following:
|English Drama||Medical Biology||International Business Management|
|British Poetry||The Physical World||Introduction to Law|
|Europe & The World Wars||Chemistry Matters||Macro & Micro Economics|
|Philosophy & Philosophers||Calculus||Politics & International Relations|
|Classical Civilisations||Algebra||Probability & Statistics|
As well as these tutorials, students will participate in optional workshops and Master Classes. Students can also choose optional SAT and IELTs preparation modules.
Fortnightly one-to-one supervisions are held to review the work done in tutorials and to discuss how students can build on what they have learned.
CASP is available to international students with an advanced or proficiency level of English as well as American students wanting to spend a summer in Cambridge. At the end of the course, detailed reports are prepared for students’ progress in each subject and this transcript can be forwarded to high schools for credit when requested. We are able to liaise with a student’s school / college to ensure course material complements the year-round syllabus.
