Subject Overview

For those curious about how things work, studying Engineering online with Reach Cambridge is the perfect opportunity to satisfy their curiosity and inspire future studies. Students gain a theoretical overview of relevant concepts as well as guidance for hands-on experiments that can be done safely at home (use a paper airplane to learn what keeps real planes in the air!). Considering topics such as force, pressure, strength, stress, materials, aerodynamics or fluid mechanics, each student receives a firm grounding in the different fields of engineering as well as a clearer vision of how each field works to keep the world growing towards a better tomorrow.

Whichever subject(s) you choose to study with us, you have a number of options in terms of how your learning experience is designed. Broadly we take three slightly different approaches depending on the needs of the student, and you should discuss your desired approach during your free advice session. Our three approaches are as follows:

  1. A pre-University course, which prepares you for university study by offering a general overview of the subject at university level, tailored to your interests
  2. Ongoing tutoring, which typically focusses on specific requirements such as an upcoming exam or additional support in a particular area
  3. A research project, which incorporates a deep dive into a particular aspect of your chosen subject as well as key skills required for university level study and an assessed presentation component at the end of the course. For this option, students must choose a tuition package and also a research project ‘add-on.’

Please let your personal adviser know your preferences during your advice session and they will be delighted to put together a bespoke package for you.

Remember: You can study more than one subject with us and many of our students do exactly that.

  • Special discounts for our residential programs

Optional Add-Ons:

Why not complement your academic course with one of our add-ons?

Research Project (5 hours)

Students choosing our research project must first choose an academic bundle of 10, 20 or 40 hours in their chosen subject and then also select the research project add-on. Your tutor will work with you to design a project as the focus of your academic tuition. The research project add-on comprises sessions specifically focussed on the skills you will need to hone at university level as well as preparing you for a formal presentation, which you will make to an independent academic at the end of your course. Following your presentation you will receive a research project certificate and report from your course tutor.

Exam and Interview Prep (5 hours)

Do you have a very particular goal in mind? An exam or set of exams that you are focussed upon or a particular interview or set of interviews that you would like to prepare for? Our exam and interview prep classes are designed to do two things. The first is to ensure you have the key skills to succeed: revision techniques and exam preparation for example or public speaking and presentation skills. The second is to pair that skillset with the particular knowledge that will be relevant in the exam(s) or interview(s) you are targeting. And that is where our bespoke packages come into their own - you will be paired with tutors that have both particular subject knowledge as well as the skills you will require to succeed.

Study Skills (5 hours)

What does it take to succeed in university and in life? How can you take care of yourself, emotionally and psychologically, while doing your best every step of the way? Complement your passion for learning with concrete skills to help you thrive and succeed, through sessions covering everything from revision techniques and exam preparation, to essay writing, interview skills and more.

Leadership Skills (5 hours)

What does it take to be a young leader and global citizen in today's world? In a world as bustling and busy as ours is today, stepping up to make a difference can be a daunting task. Through this online course, students consider questions of leadership, youth involvement, the role of the internet and social media in 21st-century leadership, global vs. local engagement, and how leadership can be used to make the world a better, kinder place. In parallel to these theoretical discussions, students are challenged to consider the most important issues facing the world today and to develop their own forms of leadership. Workshops on public speaking, presentation skills, interview skills, exam and revision help, academic writing, and more, will reinforce leadership discipline and ideals and help tomorrow’s young leaders to achieve their goals!


The most exciting part was just arriving here, seeing everything new and sleeping in college. Everyone is really friendly, really open, and happy!

Leo, Engineering, 2018

It made me have more confidence, especially the public speaking. Because of Reach Cambridge I have more friends from all around the world. Thank you Reach Cambridge family!

Berk, Physics & Engineering, 2019

Reach Cambridge was an amazing experience and I met people from all around the world. At first I was really scared to meet lots of people, but now I look back, if I had not taken this experience I would definitely have regretted it. The accommodation was very comfortable and…

Omar, Physics & Engineering, 2019

I will never forget all the cultures and diversity I have witnessed at this camp, let alone the trips and classes I have experienced.

Jake, Physics & Engineering, 2018

If you're at all interested in physics, take this course! I've learned so much from these amazing teachers, and the topics were engaging, interesting and thought-provoking.

Levente, Physics & Engineering Student, 2018

It was great - I had a lot of fun, made new friends, and learnt amazing things.

Jeanne, Physics & Engineering, 2016

I learned a lot about Physics that wouldn't have been covered in school.

Arun, Physics & Engineering, 2016

It was amazing! I made a lot of great friends and I will miss them. Cambridge is a fantastic place to stay and I will miss the town too!

Katherine, Physics & Engineering, 2015

Reach Cambridge has been an amazing experience and I'm hoping to do it again next year if possible. The university experience teaches you to be independent and how to manage your time alongside studying things that challenge your thinking process and creativity. The evening lectures have given me a long…
