TCS Summer Courses at Cambridge University


TCS will offer the Grade 12 English (ENG4U) credit course,
in partnership with Reach Cambridge,
June 22-July 15, 2023.

Taking a TCS summer course at Cambridge University is an experiential learning opportunity where students can earn an Ontario Secondary School credit while travelling and discovering a new culture. Students will travel and live within a safe and structured environment chaperoned, in part, by TCS faculty. They will be taught by TCS teachers using TCS curriculum approved by the Ontario Ministry of Education. They will be presented with challenging and creative course material that will relate to each location's scenery and sites. Excursions, site programming and other culturally targeted initiatives are facilitated by our program partner, REACH Cambridge. Summer courses abroad foster an appreciation of the practice that is "living learning." An enriched curriculum is enhanced by the opportunity to develop cultural literacy, something of key importance given our inter-connected world. TCS, at home and abroad, is a place in the world and of the world.

2023 Course Details

Course Structure
Cambridge 2023 will be a hybrid model. The first part of the course will be online June 22, 23, 26-30, and then move to Cambridge for in-person learning. The online part of the course will be synchronous for part of the time only. Students will then work on their own without needing to be in front of a screen. They can take this part of the course from any location providing that they have an internet connection.

Students should arrive in the U.K. on July 2nd. Classes will begin on July 3rd and run until July 15th. Please note that no accommodation or supervision at Cambridge is available before July 2nd. The university year ends much later in the U.K. and rooms are not available.

Course Cost: $8,200
Note: The price includes the course, accommodations, all excursions and most meals.The cost of flights is not included as airline travel will be arranged by families. Click here for a detailed list of what is included in the course price.

**Special Note: Before enrolling in a summer course, students are expected to speak with their TCS guidance counsellor to discuss academic pathways and university admissions implications. Note of caution: Students and families should be aware that there is a growing trend on behalf of selective post-secondary programs that wish to see core Grade 12 courses taken during the year at a student’s home school.

Our courses are open to any secondary school student registered in an independent, public or separate school.
