Early admission to Cambridge when you're not the Prime Minister's son: how was it done?

For a book, I'm looking for descriptions of historical admission/matriculation procedures for a young man wanting to enroll himself at an English university.

Asking for my friend. My friend is finishing her associate's degree in a creative field in May, but is not sure of whether she should look for a job right away, or accept her admittance to a prestigious and high-profile exchange program at a foreign university.

Help me find this book

Hello Hive Mind, I'm looking for the title/author of a non-fiction book I read in the last few years. Here's what I remember: Retired professor returns to college as a freshman... Goes to a school that teaches a "Great Books" curriculum, where practically every class is a seminar/discussion group. The school encourages every student to participate in intramural athletics, so the old "freshman" joins the rowing team. The book is the story of his year at the school. Thanks for your help!
