Insight Explore

Insight Explore is an academic programme for students from selected schools in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk. The programme aims to develop students’ interests and tackle the barriers that they may face when applying to university.

During the programme, students will be able to explore academic subjects that may not be taught in school and talk to current academic staff and student ambassadors about their subject choices. The programme also aims to alleviate worries regarding topics such as the admissions process and student finance. Whilst on the programme, participants will complete academic work and receive feedback from current university staff and students.

As part of the programme, participants will come to Cambridge several times each year to attend a combination of compulsory and optional events which are designed to help students to develop skills and their understanding of university life and the future options that are available to them. These events will take place either at the weekend or during the school holidays. The programme will not interfere with school work.

In order to apply to the Insight Explore programme, students should be on track to achieve five 9-5 grades at GCSE and attend a selected school. Applications will be verified by a teacher once they have been submitted.
