Supra-curricular’ academic enrichment resources sheet

Our new document contains a comprehensive list of academic enrichment resources, grouped according to undergraduate degrees at Cambridge. We have also provided a detailed explanation of what constitutes academic enrichment, and why and how you should do it. Each undergraduate course is introduced in order to show the subject-specific skills and knowledge that your academic exploration should be developing.

An in-depth exploration of your subject of interest will be helpful for considering which courses will suit you at university, as well as providing you with content for your personal statement. During this unprecedented time, we also hope that you will find this process interesting and enjoyable. There are also two videos below that will explain how to use the resources. It might be helpful to watch these before looking at the document itself.
