As well as hearing about university and Cambridge, the students also found out about the different options available as they continue through their education. Students were able to sit in on a short lecture from a science academic who spoke about her research into DNA origami. Students on Cambridge University visit


Throughout the day students had the opportunity to talk to current undergraduate students and have a guided tour; they saw some amazing architecture and even got to see inside the chapel and a real student flat.  Students were shocked to find out that some student accommodation did not have bathrooms and students have to go outside to another building to shower!
