Join us in Boston in summer 2020 and experience student life in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a world-leading hub of academia that hosts some of the finest universities in the world. Participants will live and study in the comfortable surrounds of a beautiful and tranquil campus a stone's throw away from Cambridge's buzzing student heart. Choose from a wide range of courses - including the popular Ivy League Experience - and boost your knowledge to prepare for College life and your career beyond.

With a staggering array of museums, theatres, places to eat and historic buildings within easy reach of the campus, time outside of class will be well spent exploring Cambridge's many attractions, from its biotech startups to its quirky bookshops and cafés. Students will gain a unique flavour of what life is like at some of the prestigious higher education institutions on their doorstep - including Harvard, MIT, Tufts, Hult Business School and more - walking in the footsteps of former US presidents, Attorneys General, Supreme Court Justices and eminent business leaders. And with downtown Boston just across the iconic Charles River, students will be able to explore Boston's key cultural and historic sites, as well as its many great cafés and shops.
