Join us for a fully immersive experience – every day offers an engaging, inspiring and action-packed schedule on a Reach Cambridge summer program. Here are the top 5 reasons our students recommend the Reach Experience:
Academic excellence is at the heart of our programs. Students are able to choose from a wide range of subjects to prepare for their future. Our courses, certified by the British Accreditation Council, provide students with an opportunity to gain valuable experience ahead of applying to university. Taught by expert academics, practising professionals and inspirational teachers, our courses are stimulating, challenging and unique, exposing students to the latest innovation and research. At the end of their course, students receive a certificate of completion.
As one of the oldest university cities in the world, Cambridge has been home to some of the most incredible minds of Western history and serves as the perfect backdrop for students hoping to join their ranks. Set against the beautiful river Cam, plenty of green spaces, and some of the most incredible architecture from the 13th century to the present, there’s something here to inspire every personality and every passion.
Excursions & Activities
Just as we at Reach believe in academic excellence, we believe in the power of weekends and cultural enrichment too. Throughout the summer students have the opportunity to discover parts of the UK outside Cambridge through fully guided trips to London, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Ely, and more. Each trip is organised around inspiring cultural activities – like walking tours of some of London’s most historic districts, taking in a play, or visiting one of the UK’s most impressive medieval castles.
Welcoming students from upwards of 50 different countries and every continent except Antarctica each summer, we at Reach pride ourselves on bringing a bit of the world together to learn and grow each summer. Through classes, workshops, and plenty of outside classroom activities, students have the opportunity to meet new people, learn about new languages and places, make friends, share their passions, and sometimes even put together an international act for our talent show!
The Perfect Balance
Part of the Reach experience is growing in independence and preparing for some of the non-academic milestones of university life—like making new friends, learning to manage your own time, and discovering what kind of adult you want to be. After more than fifteen years, we pride ourselves on providing that perfect balance between independence and support and in facilitating an experience in which students learn to trust one another and also themselves.
Enhance your experience with Taster Courses
Our Taster courses give a ‘taste’ of another academic subject to sit alongside our main courses. We also have tasters that can broaden and hone leadership or project management skills. Whatever you’re craving, our Taster courses can offer an enriching addition to your Reach experience! Choose from this exciting list of tasters and add to your program when you apply. Taster courses take place in the afternoons and students can choose up to 2 Taster courses for every 2-week program.

Extend your stay
4 week programs
We offer the opportunity to extend your experience to four or six weeks. This is a great option for students looking for more time to immerse themselves in their studies, to try out a second or third subject and to explore more of the UK. View our student testimonial videos to hear directly from those who joined us for four weeks about why they made their choice and why they’d make the same choice again. If you are looking to get the most out of your study-abroad summer, the four or six week option could be for you!
