The Pembroke Cambridge Summer Programme at Cambridge University, United Kingdom, is a selective and prestigious program in which students can obtain upper-division elective honors courses that will count toward their major while fostering relationships with Cambridge faculty (from whom they will take their courses) and other participating students (who will come from all over the world).

For this highly competitive program, students are required to have a GPA of 3.5. Being accepted into this program is a great honor, but be aware that the coursework offered is very rigorous. You will be held to a standard higher than you may be accustomed to at UVU. You will be responsible to complete all course material and assignments by the dates this program sets. Only students who are serious about this program need apply.

All UVU study abroad students must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Students may be required to test negative for COVID-19 at their own expense by host countries as a condition for entry.

The UVU application for this program is due by March 1, 2024.

I loved being a Pembroke-King’s student at Cambridge University. Cambridge is a beautiful place, and the program has a very strong "work hard-play hard" atmosphere. While studying at the university, I felt a strong sense of the historical atmosphere and respect for learning that it allowed me to really focus concentrate on my academics. At the same time, the program has so many fun activities and trips that I was always motivated to finish my work so I could join in. I made so many friends from all over the world and loved traveling with them on weekends or dining with them at formal halls. While on PKP, I was able to network and learn about tips on how to apply for many prestigious graduate study opportunities. One of my favorite memories was meeting a member of the Fulbright Program's Board of Directors while sitting down to breakfast one morning. He and others were able to help give me advice on my future academic goals. Additionally, I was able to build my connection to Cambridge through PKP's supervision option. My connection to Cambridge is something that does not end once the program is over. Being connected to such a prestigious university comes with an incredible alumni network that PKP students can take advantage of during and after the program. I am now in the process of applying for Fulbright, Gates, and Marshall scholarships. For those students looking to boost their resume in an international setting, PKP is definitely a fun program that provides an opportunity of a lifetime.

I had an amazing time, better than I thought I would. At first, I was excited, nervous, and a little intimidated. I was excited for the opportunity to study at Cambridge, be abroad on my own, and make new friends. Intimidation came from the high caliber of students attending from elite schools. These students unknowingly made me realize my own hidden abilities. I often found myself in deep discussions about politics, religion, education, and my plans for the future. I developed lifelong friendships with students from all over the world and am forever grateful. Not only did I become more knowledgeable about others, cultures, religions, and languages, most importantly I learned a lot about myself. PKP provided several academic, sports, and historic activities that I attended to enhance my experience, and they did! I played squash, cricket, croquet, and went punting for the first time. I discovered I am quite good at tennis. Though all of these activities were fun, the equally important aspect of PKP were the courses. I took two classes, and my third was a supervision. Both courses were taught by experts in their fields who were insanely passionate about their fields — this of course made for the lectures and seminars to be interactive. From my academic work in PKP I will submit a few of my short research papers to journals and present my supervision paper at a conference. I was also invited by my supervision professor to visit her in New York in March while she is working at the U.N. and doing a fellowship at Harvard. This program has opened my eyes to several career and educational opportunities.

Nonnie Suso

My name is Nonnie Suso (integrated studies; philosophy and English), and when I heard that I had an opportunity to take courses at the University of Cambridge during my undergraduate career, I decided to jump on it. It was a rocky road between the day I applied and the first days of the program, but in the end I had no regrets. I took three philosophy courses (since that's what I study), and the formatting was fascinating (12 lectures and eight seminars). It was extremely condensed, with a lot of information in a very short time, and yet it didn't feel too overwhelming. I had many opportunities to travel around Cambridge and the U.K. Many of the museums, if not most, are free of charge, so I went to as many as I could. When I got into Cambridge, I felt as if I were transported in time — except for the fact that there were vehicles and people with contemporary clothing. It's a beautiful city, and one worth going to. I would recommend this program to every student that would enjoy studying abroad. I am grateful for all the support and encouragement that I got from my mentors at the Integrated Studies department and from my family.
