Emmanuel College Langevity Programme 2024

Emmanuel College's "Langevity" Programme seeks to expose aspiring linguists in Yr10, Yr11, &Y12 to a variety of disciplines via a series of 'Introduction to X Language' webinars delivered by Cambridge academics.

The introductory language sessions are set to take place on Thursdays, 5pm-6.30pm, between Thursday 18th April and Thursday 30th May.

In addition to the academic content, our Schools Liaison Officer will also offer guidance on how one might go about preparing a competitive application for related courses: Modern & Medieval Languages; History & Modern Languages; Asian & Middle Eastern Studies; Classics; Archaeology; Theology, Religion, & Philosophy of Religion. 

A small number of participants will be invited to a free in-person visit day (lunch and travel provided) at the College in June, during which they will attend further academic sessions, experience the Collegiate structure of Cambridge, and have the opportunity to develop their subject interests in the lead up to the 2025 Admissions Cycle. Participants will need to indicate their interest in the in-person visit day in their application; priority will be given to high-achieving pupils from Widening Participation backgrounds.

Any participant who is looking to make an application for 2025 entry (or 2026 entry, if deferring) to relevant courses will be invited to reconvene in early September for a final Admissions guidance session to conclude the programme.

Apply by 10am Monday, 8th April 2024.
