last modified Sep 02, 2016 10:22 AM

Dr Matthew Shores, University Lecturer in Japanese, and Dr Aaron Hornkohl, Language Teaching Officer in Modern Hebrew, coordinated the Sutton Trust Summer School in the AMES Faculty, 22nd - 26th August, 2016.

Ten year-12 students selected from across the country experienced for one week what it is like to live and socialize at a Cambridge college and study at the AMES Faculty. Participants attended lectures, took part in four different language taster sessions, practice Japanese calligraphy, worked on research projects, gave final presentations, and much more. This is an important outreach program that hopes to see participants applying for formal enrollment in the upcoming year.
