HE+ Programme

HE+ is a programme offered in conjunction with the University of Cambridge with the aim to inspire students to apply to competitive universities such as Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group universities.

The University of Cambridge HE+ programme is an amazing opportunity to make your UCAS university application stand out. You will gain an insight to the university application process and  have the chance to take part in exciting activities that go beyond the A Level curriculum. These include:

  • University style lectures on your chosen subjects
  • Lessons taught by University of Cambridge academic staff
  • The chance to explore new topics
  • Meeting like minded students from other colleges across Hampshire
  • A trip to Trinity College at the University of Cambridge

The HE+ programme is designed to develop your knowledge and build your confidence in attending university. You’ll become part of an academic community and get a preview of the wider programme of reading that comes with Higher Education.
