The CCIR Academy

Highly-selective online research programmes designed and taught by top Oxbridge faculty for gifted high school students.

the ccir difference


Born and based in Cambridge UK, CCIR's overarching mission is to benefit the public by increasing the accessibility of knowledge.

In virtue of our work at CCIR Academy, we are able to sustain many non-profit initiatives at the CCIR Think Tank that serve to connect the public with the brightest minds in the academic today.


We only partner with Lecturers (equivalent to Assistant Professor at US universities) or above at the University of Cambridge or the University of Oxford as research programmes' mentors.


Our students develop and maintain close friendships with their peers and mentors which last far beyond the duration of their programmes.


Because our faculty members are all leaders in their field, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards in our admissions.

For students intent on exploring further academic studies, their experience and work at CCIR will serve as an invaluable record of their capabilities.
