More than just studying, we have a great social scene here too. There’s loads going on within the University and Colleges, and with students accounting for about a fifth of the city’s overall population, this makes Cambridge a great place to be a student.
The Cambridge Advantage: Work hard, play hard
- 100s of student clubs and societies to choose from.
- No. 1 for good extra-curricular activities/societies (Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2016).
- 80+ sports with opportunities to get involved at any level.
There are hundreds of clubs and societies to get involved in, and throughout term-time there's a whole range of student-organised entertainment events (or 'ents') on offer as well. Among the highlights are the legendary College May Balls, held during May week (which actually runs for about two weeks in June, after exams). In addition, there's plenty going on in and around the city throughout the year.
Not only is the teaching excellent, but with hundreds of student societies, world class sports, debating, performances, art and more, this vibrant city is bursting with opportunities.
