Cambridge Direct Enrollment 2015
Pembroke-King's College Summer Programme
During this eight-week program students select three lecture courses from a wide range of courses on offer in the arts, social sciences, business and management, humanities and sciences. Courses are rigorous and intellectually demanding, reflect Cambridge styles of teaching and learning and the small course enrollments allow seminar groups to be intimate and discussion-oriented.
The supervision system (one-on-one or small group teaching) is one of the key strengths of the Cambridge undergraduate teaching system and students wishing to experience this unique tutorial system may substitute a supervision for one of the taught courses.
Sunday 28 June – Saturday 22 August 2015
In Conjunction with PKP is The International Security and Intelligence Programme!
Twenty-First Century Perspectives on Intelligence and the Modern Nation-State
29 June – 24 July 2015
Working closely with the Co-Chairs of the Programme, Sir Richard Dearlove, former Head of the British Secret Intelligence Service and current Master of Pembroke College, and Professor Christopher Andrew, Emeritus Professor of Modern and Contemporary History and founder of the Intelligence Seminar at the University of Cambridge, Pembroke offers a unique opportunity to work with leading practitioners and academics from the security and intelligence communities in an exploration of the ‘craft of intelligence’.
Led by Programme Convenors Dr Michael Goodman and Lt Cdr David Gioe, the programme will explore the role of intelligence and security agencies in a democratic society, applying the twin principles of intelligence and security to 21st century problems. With an emphasis on contemporary and future challenges and practice, this course will appeal to those with a professional or academic interest in statecraft and the interlocking themes of intelligence, security, defence, and foreign policy formation and implementation.
Also, The Pembroke College-National Academy of Writing Summer Programme!
27 July – 21 August 2015
In collaboration with the National Academy of Writing, Pembroke offers a unique opportunity for those with a commitment to developing their writing to meet and work with leading practitioners, over four intense weeks, in the delightful setting of one of Cambridge’s oldest and most forward-looking Colleges.
Led by the National Academy of Writing’s Director Richard Beard and the award-winning novelist Kerry Hudson, the programme will explore aspects of effective narrative writing, from the generation of ideas to methodologies for editing. It is designed for those with at least some, and possibly quite an extensive, background in creative writing who are looking for inspiration from a course which is above all about the practice and art of writing.
