Y12 student secures work experience placement at Cambridge University
Catherine Elmslie Year 12 has been offered a place on a summer school for Broad-based Engineering at Cambridge University, through the Engineering Development Trust.
Catherine is delighted and says:
‘I will get the chance to spend a week experiencing university life and learning more about Engineering.
Throughout the week I will attend lectures and labs, and work on projects, for example designing, constructing and testing a robotic vehicle within the University's Engineering Department. I like a challenge and this course will certainly stretch my abilities!
Summer schools are an excellent way of experiencing your subject before you get to university and I would recommend applying for one as not only will it strengthen your university application but it will also allow you to get a feel for the subject which you hope to study after A-levels."
