Industry Experience

The purpose of the industry experience programme at Summer Boarding Courses is to provide our students a greater understanding of what it’s really like to work in and learn about their subject of study.

Visit a leading start-up company, with a guided tour of the premise. Meet the CEO and management board, and hear how they transformed their business from an idea to money-making reality. The visit includes a Q&A session with the CEO, so that students can ask questions about their own business ideas.

Guest Speaker

One of the highlights of higher education is the experience of listening to a lecturer impart meaningful knowledge and insight. In being exposed to groundbreaking theories and more academic language students are able to hear sophisticated learning in context and are able to go on and acquire it through their own note taking.

At SBC, we are privileged to have guest lecturers across all of our subjects at Cambridge to give a taster of what learning at university is really like.
