Cultural Understanding in English Language Classes

The Homerton International Programme is a multidisciplinary summer course designed for international university students to experience life as a Cambridge student, improve their English language skills but also develop their wider opinions and critical thinking.

Throughout the programme, students compare cultural differences in highly focused and innovative English language classes. These classes are based on University teaching principles and are designed to complement cultural activities such as punting, traditional afternoon tea and formal dinner in our Great Hall.

Global Leadership

This part of the programme aims to develop critical thinking and communication skills, providing our students with a number of opportunities to discuss some of the most challenging issues facing society. Students will have an opportunity to work on a Group Project on a jointly selected topic and also will deliver an individual presentation during their stay. Not only will they improve their spoken English but also debating and presentation skills will be honed as well.
