Introduction to Architecture

There is no place better to be introduced to architecture than in the grand, historic surroundings of Cambridge and its 800 year old university. Everything in the built environment contains architectural ideas and design: from doorways to skyscrapers. This course will provide a fascinating introduction to the way that architects think and design, as well as providing students with greater insight into what makes Cambridge’s most iconic buildings such stunning examples of fine architecture. This short course touches upon both the creative, expressive side, and precise, technical side of architecture. It will also get students thinking about the profound influence that space plays in shaping human thought, emotion and action. Students will get the chance to create their own basic designs and will find out more about the different career opportunities in architecture. This Add-On will take place outside of normal class time, and will combine lectures with hands-on activities.

University Advance

One reason why you might join us in Cambridge is an interest in applying to university in one of the cities we visit. The University Advance Add-On will involve one day trip, either to the colleges of Oxford or to London universities (for example University College London, Imperial College, and the London School of Economics). Reach Cambridge will organise an accompanied tour of the university buildings and facilities, giving you the opportunity to explore your prospective campuses! Please note that this Add-On will require you to miss one full day of classes. Read more here.

We even do occasional visits to the Other Place…

Young Leaders

The Young Leaders Add-On covers all of the life skills that are essential at university and beyond. In 6 hours spread over several afternoons, the Young Leaders Add-On covers topics such as leadership skills, presentation skills, academic writing skills and university learning strategies. Taught by specialists in the field, the young leaders add-on is for many students a highlight of their Reach Cambridge experience.
