Cambridge 2013 Summer Course Descriptions

The 2013 course list is below.  Students accepted into the Cambridge Programme choose two courses, one from two groups below.  The first option in each group (A01/B01/C01) is not available, so students should only consider courses from A02-A09, B02-B09, and C02-C07.  Groups are blocked by time, so students may choose to schedule their day depending on whether they would like morning sessions, mid-morning and afternoon sessions, or a split morning/afternoon session.

Students will provide their first, second, and third choices for courses.  If the first choice is full, Cambridge will automatically allocate them to their second choice, or, if necessary, to their third.
