Studying in partnership with LMU Munich this summer

The University of Cambridge International Summer Programmes is launching
a four-week programme building on the close relationship between
Cambridge and LMU Munich.

This new programme will be running from 02 to 29 August 2020 and was
designed primarily for students from both universities as an opportunity
to focus on European Studies. Established researchers and experts in
each University will deliver talks, which set European issues in their
historical context and go on to address the current turbulent political
situation. As we enter an extraordinary phase in the history of Europe,
fundamental to this programme is the opportunity for discussion and
debate between lecturers and students from two leading institutions
directly affected by these changes.

For more information, please see our website at
www.ice.ca.ac.uk/intsummer [1] or contact the International Summer
Programmes at intenq@ice.cam.ac.uk .

University Education Summer Volunteering Opportunity

Universify Education seeks enthusiastic students who are passionate
about university and outreach to act as Volunteer Coaches on our 2020
program. This involves helping run a summer residential and 3-day Easter
weekend at either Oxford or Cambridge University, and delivering monthly
coaching sessions throughout the year. We inspire Year 10/11 students
from non-selective state schools to strive for, apply to, and be
accepted at highly-selective universities. Our intervention starts
earlier than most outreach programmes, giving students the time to
develop their goals and achieve the GCSE grades required to make a
strong application to university. Students attend academic sessions,
delivered by academics, and undergraduate volunteers provide student
welfare support and ongoing coaching throughout the programme.   _

_ _

Help run our summer programme in Oxford or Cambridge between 8th-15th
August, 15th-22nd August, 22rd-29th August 2020 – you receive free meals
and accommodation and get the opportunity to join our extensive
leadership and coaching training programme. Our volunteers play a vital
role in leading student groups, providing pastoral care and delivering
one-to-one academic coaching. Our team of professional coaches, who
specialise in working with excluded pupils, provide all volunteers with
training in what makes an effective coach. You will also receive
training in mental health first aid and safeguarding.

In less than a month, MWA has raised £90,000+ with 300+ students joining. Would you like to join one of the fastest-growing and impactful student charity movements in Cambridge? Or, are you looking for a fun and meaningful way to start your May Week celebrations?

At May Week Alternative, we believe that celebration and giving can go hand in hand. We invite you, whether you’re going to three May Balls or none, to donate an amount significant to you to charity. Through our matched funding, every donation is automatically doubled so the recommended donation of £150 (the approximate cost of a May Ball ticket) to the Against Malaria Foundation will help protect 350 people from malaria. 

We then host a Summer Party where everyone who’s joined over the year is welcome to come and celebrate with us the end of exams and our collective impact; there’ll be amazing food and drink, live music and entertainment! (https://www.facebook.com/events/s/mwa-summer-party-2020/165383061426352/)
To join the growing movement now, donate by SUNDAY 1ST MARCH at www.mayweekalternative.org.uk
