Applications for PKP 2013 will open on 5 November 2012!
The Pembroke-King’s Programme (PKP) offers an
exceptional opportunity for outstanding undergraduates to experience
Cambridge student life over eight weeks, the length of a regular
University term. Many of the students on this programme have
traditionally come from leading US universities, but since 2010 Pembroke
has welcomed applications from students at universities world-wide.
Living in Pembroke or King’s Colleges, students choose three courses
from the forty-five on offer, including courses in the arts, social
sciences, business and management, humanities and sciences. All courses
are ‘Cambridge’ in style, content and standard. Students can also apply
to take a supervision, in which an individual student meets with a
professor weekly to work on a series of research-based papers, or a
longer dissertation, in the student’s major subject area.
Outside class, a diverse and fun range of social, cultural and
sporting activities is on offer, together with exciting travel options
around the UK and Europe. Included in the programme costs
are tuition fees for three courses, usually worth 9-12 credits,
housing, a partial meal plan and Formal Halls, a four-day visit
to Scotland and a daytrip to London. Four scholarships covering the full
tuition fee are also available.
Applications are welcomed from students who can demonstrate academic
ambition and proficiency in English. Competition for places is intense,
so early application is advised.
