AIM: Master’s

AIM Master's is a four-week, online programme to support applicants from underrepresented groups with writing a research proposal for their application to MPhil study in the School of Arts and Humanities at the University of Cambridge.

The programme will run from 5 - 30 August 2024, followed by a two-week period for participants to write and submit their draft research proposal. During this time, you will be paired with a Cambridge postgraduate researcher who will provide one-on-one mentoring, to support you to turn your research interest into a concrete question with a tangible plan. You will also attend a series of interactive online information sessions (totalling around six hours over the four weeks), covering a variety of useful topics that will support you with your application to Cambridge.

Please note that the AIM: Master’s programme is entirely separate to your MPhil application. Participation in this programme does not guarantee acceptance onto your intended MPhil course, nor does unsuccessful application to AIM mean you will be unsuccessful in your MPhil application. There are a limited number of places on the AIM: Master’s programme; if we are unable to offer you a place, this is not necessarily an indication of your suitability for MPhil study at Cambridge.
