The Cambridge University African Students Mentorship Programme (CAMP), formally known as the ASCU Mentorship Programme is an initiative owned and organised by the African Society of Cambridge University that aims to provide general guidance and support on the postgraduate application process for Africans applying to the University of Cambridge. CAMP is the first University of Cambridge African students-led institutionalized mentorship programme for Africans, that provides financial support for application fees as needed. The structured programme will be run from August 2022 to December 2022 and will include one-to-one mentorship support with a matched member of the university. Further support will be provided for mentees with successful Cambridge applications.

Why CAMP Exists

The main aim of CAMP is to increase the application and success rate of African postgraduate applicants coming to Cambridge. We found that African students only make up about 2% of the full-time new entrant international student population enrolled at Cambridge. African applicants face multiple barriers to entry such as:

  • Knowledge gap about important aspects of the Cambridge application
  • Difficulty in obtaining strong reference letters
  • High cost of application fees and English language proficiency test fees

  • General session webinars to discuss tips on how to identify and contact a supervisor, and how to write strong personal statements and research proposals
  • One-to-one mentorship support with a matched Cambridge student, alum or staff member
  • Financial support for application fees for mentees with demonstrated hardship

Women, people living in conflict zones in Africa and persons living with disability are encouraged to apply
