Stay in inspiring surroundings
For centuries, the University of Cambridge has shaped and changed the world through visionary ideas and ground-breaking discoveries. While studying with us you’ll be following in the footsteps of giants in the worlds of history, politics, literature and science. Cambridge itself is steeped in history and you can choose to stay in one of five Colleges (Selwyn, Newnham, Queens’, St Catharine’s or Gonville and Caius).
Discover new subjects and perspectives
With over 200 courses on offer there are plenty of opportunities to discover new disciplines and try out different subjects. Our specialist programmes include Business and Entrepreneurship, Science, Literature, History, Art and Visual Culture, Shakespeare, Ancient and Classical Worlds, Medieval Studies and Creative Writing. Our Interdisciplinary programme allows you to combine a number of topics and build your own personalised study programme. We also offer a three-week programme in English Law and Legal Methods.
Experience a supportive learning environment
Learn from some of Cambridge’s finest academics, and from your fellow participants. Our Summer Programmes are intellectually rigorous, using teaching styles which will help you to develop your capacity for critical thinking. Small class sizes allow for close discussion and lecturers are on hand to help you to understand your chosen field and guide you in your studies.
