Alex's Cambridge experience.
Year 12 Sixth Form student Alex Slack has enjoyed a fantastic experience of being able to shadow a student from Cambridge University. As part of the HE+ programme, Alex signed up for the Cambridge University Shadowing Programme and was accepted onto this.
Alex was assigned a student mentor from Cambridge University and chatted to the mentor who gave her advice on doing a medical degree. Alex then joined her for a couple of days at Cambridge where she followed her to lectures, took part in social activities and was able to get a feel for life at university. Whilst there, Alex also went to some workshops and received some good advice from her mentor and other students.
Following this experience, Alex wants to apply to Cambridge to study medicine.
