Cambridge programme


The Amgen Cambridge Scholars Programme offers 20 undergraduate students from across Europe the opportunity to take part in an eight week research project within one of the laboratories at the University of Cambridge.  

The programme takes place between the 8th July and 1st September 2018. Accommodation is provided at St. Edmunds College throughout the programme.

Scholars are also invited to take part in weekly evening sessions as part of our professional development programme. In recent years this has included sessions exploring different scientific careers, applying for graduate education and on how to prepare and present scientific posters. 

We also offer a variety of social activities throughout the programme.

Annual Symposium
The Annual Symposium will take place immediately following the summer programme, from 2nd-5th September 2018. Amgen Scholars at the University of Cambridge will be joined by Amgen Scholars from the other four European Programme sites (the Institut Pasteur in France, ETH Zurich in Switzerland, Karolinska Institute in Sweden and LMU-Munich, Germany). The symposium will take place in Clare College, and all meals and accommodation will be provided during this period. Attendance at the Annual Symposium is obligatory for those accepting a place on the Amgen Scholars Programme.


Admissions will open on the 1st November 2018.

The University of Cambridge is delighted to continue to participate in the Amgen Scholars Programme and to welcome scholars from universities across Europe.

Amgen Scholars at the University of Cambridge will have the opportunity to work alongside our experienced faculty members, including some of the world's top academic scientists. They will gain hands-on laboratory experience, and actively contribute to the advancement of science. We hope that the experience of undertaking research in one of the world's foremost Universities will enthuse our Scholars about a career in scientific research.
