Supra-curricular enrichment is an important way to expand your knowledge of your subject, explore your interests and develop your skills. Most competitive applicants to Cambridge and other top universities will have spent time exploring their subject in this way before applying. Proactivity is encouraged, but it's not up to you to work it all out and to find resources for yourself. We can help!

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.
