The CUSU Shadowing Scheme brings UK students from schools without a tradition of top university entry to Cambridge for three days. Prospective students come to Cambridge and spend time with a current undergraduate, studying a subject that you are interested in, who you 'shadow'. The idea is to give those who have little or no experience of university a taste of student life at Cambridge, in real time, with real people. We especially welcome applications from those who would be the first in their immediate family to attend university.

The Scheme will run on the following dates in 2018:

  • January 18 - 20
  • January 25 - 27
  • February 1 - 3

The application system is not yet open. Please check back later.
