Overall Experience
I learned about different teaching styles and I learned about which learning styles work for me which I will use in my studies at Wellesley. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Life Changing
I gained independence, and got to experience a different teaching style. I also got to study at one of the best Universities in the world. And I got 8 credits that will transfer to my home school. It was worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

About

Three hundred students from all over the world gather for this exclusive opportunity over six weeks in Cambridge each summer, enjoying the academic rigor of this world-renowned institution and its unique learning format. 

The Pembroke-King’s Summer Program (PKP) allows you to choose from a wide array of courses taught in one-on-one Cambridge Supervision style. 

Supervisions, offered weekly or bi-weekly,  are a chance for your tutor to discuss points from lectures, comment on your written work, and direct you toward further research. PKP courses in world literature, history, science, philosophy, economics, film, art history, behavioral ecology, and more are on offer. You can even design your own supervision on an independently selected, approved  topic.

Over the six weeks, you’ll take three courses for a total of nine credits. This is an unforgettable opportunity to study in one of the world’s oldest and most elite institutions, located in a picturesque medieval town with a long history and rich traditions. London is just an hour away by train. 

 You’ll experience classic Cambridge traditions and events, with the opportunity to attend weekly Formal Halls, formal dinners in medieval halls by candlelight. You’ll make friends at the events organized daily and weekly by the program, including an excursion to London.
