The Tripos regulations allow students to apply to intermit between Part I and Part II (i.e. after Part IB), or between Part IIA and Part IIB, by making 'a reasoned case' for consideration by the Faculty Board. This case should outline your plans for the year and how these will contribute to your professional development and education. Typical examples of approved plans include internships with engineering firms, which will enhance the student's skills and knowledge for their Part II specialism.
- Students complete Section A of the intermission application form and forward it, together with the offer letter from the organisation with which they have secured a placement/internship, to their Director of Studies by 15 April.
- The Director of Studies should complete Section B and return the completed form and offer letter to email@example.com by 1 May.
Faculty Board approval
The Faculty Board will consider intermission applications at its first meeting in Easter Term. Applicants and their Colleges will be notified of the outcome of the Faculty Board’s decision by email.
