The Cambridge Advanced Studies Program (CASP) is a small-group, tutorial based course for high-level international students and American students in Cambridge. CASP is a fantastic Cambridge summer school for older students looking for a challenging vacation programme. All our students experience an academic and activity programme similar to Cambridge University undergraduates. The tutorial and academic content is closely modeled on the Cambridge University teaching system.
CASP students choose 2 subjects to study with expert tutors. The full list for 2015 includes:
|Politics & International Relations||Macro & Micro Economics||International Business Management|
|Great British Poetry||Spies & Espionage||Introduction to International Law|
||Medical Biology||The Physical World|
||Algebra & Calculus||Probability & Statistics|
|Applications of Engineering||Languages||Cambridge Authors & Thinkers|
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.
The Cambridge Advanced Studies Program 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 for a four-week course only. We are able to liaise with a student’s school / college to ensure course material complements the year-round syllabus. It is a unique opportunity to experience student life through a Cambridge summer school.
