Please note: This article was written by two Reach Cambridge students (Sieneen Ghani and Eline Yara Jeanne) in July 2011. Here is your chance to hear about the Reach Cambridge experience from students themselves:
While there is vast amount of information about Reach Cambridge on the website, we would like to outline an average day of a Reach Cambridge student in order to paint a clear picture of the program.
The day starts off with breakfast at 8 which offers a wide variety of scrumptious items. This is followed by class, in accordance with your picked course, which begins at 9 and ends at 1pm. Then there is a free one and a half hour for lunch. This is to give students an opportunity to explore Cambridge independently.
After this, you have the choice to either indulge in Reach Cambridge activities, which include sports, punting, music, or drama, or spend this time in whatever way you please. Dinner is served at 5.30 and consists of a selection of food items ranging from Indian green curry to the traditional British fish n chips, thus incorporating the diversity in cultures present here at Reach Cambridge.
At 7 a lecture is held at Trinity Hall. The lectures differ in topics such as interviewing skills, the history of music or the art of flying, exposing us to new ideas brought about from these. From 8-10.30, you have a choice between the planned evening activities such as a Scottish dance, talent show, casino night etc. Students also have the freedom to consume this time differently. However students have to sign in by 10.30pm latest into their assigned colleges and report to their respected supervisors at 11pm.
Not only does Reach Cambridge provide its students with quality education, but also enables them to experience a typical Cambridge university lifestyle along with an entertaining and memorable experience that will stay with them for a lifetime.
