Academic Programmes

Our Academic Programme is a unique online Winter School Programme organised by Fitzwilliam College. 

The Short Courses that we offer are exclusively taught by academics from across the University and its constituent Colleges, including Fitzwilliam College. The programme aims to give secondary school students the opportunity to experience the type of advanced teaching offered at our institution. The same academics who teach our Undergraduate students will help the participating students to develop their academic skills. The challenging problem-solving and discussion sessions will reflect the style of Undergraduate supervisions, which are the core of the excellent teaching offered at our University. 

In the winter of 2024, we are offering short courses in Mathematics, Mathematical Economics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Psychology and Neuroscience, Computer Science, Engineering and Archeology and History. For a detailed description of the short courses on offer see the file below. This winter, the short courses are open exclusively for applications from international Chinese students, who can sign up for our courses through SEED ASDAN.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Online Winter School Programme.
