NOTICE - Coronavirus - Nov 2020

The CaMPUS scheme is under review as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.  We are not able to commence plans to send students on European placements due to rapidly changing travel and work restrictions, and we will review the viability of UK based placements with the hosts and the University of Cambridge in the spring. Thank you for your understanding.
