STEM SMART (Subject Mastery and Attainment Raising Tuition) is a widening participation initiative from the University of Cambridge, in association with Isaac Physics, to provide free complementary teaching and support to UK (non-fee paying) students who:

  • have either experienced educational disadvantage or belong to a group that is statistically less likely to progress to higher education and
  • are considering applying to Engineering or Physical Science (eg Physics, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Materials Science) courses at university and are studying A levels (or equivalent) in maths and science.

STEM SMART is a free programme and aims to support students in raising their attainment at school and develop their confidence to apply to study physical sciences and engineering at top universities. The programme starts in the January of year 12 (or equivalent).
