In the morning, lessons were exciting as ever with more dissections taking place for those studying on the Introduction to Medicine programme. Further excitement took place when students studying on Introduction to Robotics were encouraged to make their own mini-robots that looked like small cars!
In the afternoon, students enjoyed an array of local excursions which everyone has been looking forward to since their arrival here. The weather remained warm as the group walked the short journey to one of Cambridge’s most renowned locations, King’s College. King’s is perhaps most notable for its famous chapel and college choir, and the gilded organ like those who sing with it, is famous the world over.
After enjoying the magnificent chapel steeped with regal history, the students then walked down the Backs, a famous stretch of the river which ‘backs’ onto a number of Cambridge colleges.
Finally, it was time for a trip to the Botanic Gardens where students enjoyed the collection of over 8000 different species of plants. The gardens also act as a research hub for conservationists and botanists studying at the university itself. Once everyone had taken in the greenery, a visit to the gift shop was welcomed before returning back to college.
On their return to college, the students finished off their homework which is mounting as they come to the end of their programmes. Later in the evening, everyone had the chance to play board games and ‘rugby netball’ on the lawn.
