Summer and Winter Student Programmes

Sidney Sussex College, China UK Development Centre (CUDC) and Maxer Education Institute (Maxer) have formed a partnership to organise summer and winter programmes in Cambridge. The programmes offer outstanding students the opportunity to broaden their horizons, enrich their knowledge and nurture their professional skills in the rich culture of Cambridge and Sidney Sussex College, one of the 31 Colleges of the University of Cambridge.

Students taking part in the programmes will benefit from lectures given by invited academics from the University of Cambridge along with industry experts. The programmes also provide students with day trips to London and Oxford as well as the opportunity to visit leading companies and research institutions. Students will be immersed in British and Cambridge culture through social events and activities such as concerts, Grantchester afternoon teas, punting, formal halls and golf practice.

China UK Development Centre has been working with Sidney Sussex College since the summer of 2012. This year, together with CUDC and Maxer, Sidney Sussex College is happily welcoming students to visit Cambridge once again in July and August.

Although these programmes take place at Sidney Sussex College they do not form any part of the College admissions and student recruitment activities.
