Hello everyone I hope you are fine and having a great day . Actually I am considering to apply to land economy Undergraduate at Cambridge but i am really confused about what type of work experience do I really need . I am the son of my country's largest advertising business and will therefore merge the course with my business in order to present a clear view and purpose for the chosen course . I am also opening a centre providing free education to low-income families which may also look good on my application . Plus I have opened a Clinic which also provides free medicines to the low income community . Apart from it I am house captain at my school .And I will be attending the court soon . If there is any other extra-curricular I should mention in my application please guide me .( Sorry for a bit bad English bcz i am actually getting late for my upcoming class).

Hi Nice to meet you! I plan to apply for the land economy as well.

I remember seeing from the admission guide on the Cambridge official website which says that work experience is not expected from Cambridge.

However, I think doing things with courts and finance will help, may be accountant or lawyer assistant?

Nice to hear from you~
I think that doing these finance and law related work will definitely help as we can write them down in our personal statement. However this may not be the most important part because I think we'd better focus on our academic aspect. So it is about how the work experiences help with our academic understanding of the subject. Could you tell me what kind of research your friend did? Did he do one himself or it was a kind of competition?

He was an amazing guy with 11A*In O levels and was predicted 4A*s in his A Levels . He wrote an amazing personal statement and shone at the interview . He did a research on Environmental condition of Mangroves in Karachi (Pakistan)

Work experience is not required or expected. What *is* required are very good academics. What qualifications are you studying?
