Undergraduate Study


Churchill College’s motto is ‘Forward’. We look to the future, not the past. Regularly ranked among the top Cambridge colleges in terms of examination results, and with many Nobel Prize winners to our name, our academic reputation is exceptional.

Sited on one of the largest College campuses in Cambridge, our undergraduate accommodation is of the highest quality: modern, spacious, light and warm, with free wireless internet. All undergraduate rooms are on-site and we can accommodate our students for the duration of their three- or four-year courses. Many rooms are en suite. All others have access to shared bathrooms. Rents are set bearing in mind our key objectives of affordability and choice. Provision for disabled people is excellent.

Churchill’s student facilities are fantastic. They include: a comprehensive 24/7 library; a dining hall; an all-day coffee shop / bar; a 300-seat theatre / cinema; a music recital room; an art studio; on-site sports pitches, courts, and gym; and a boathouse on the river.

Churchill is located adjacent to Cambridge city centre and the University’s thriving West Cambridge Site.

Churchill’s founders placed great emphasis on the study of science and technology, but they also recognised the advantages of a diverse academic community. Whilst we retain a focus on science subjects, students in the arts and humanities are as numerous here as they are in many other Cambridge colleges. Churchill students in all subjects consistently perform extraordinarily well in University examinations.

When looking at undergraduate admissions we strongly prioritise academic results while actively encouraging applicants from a wide range of backgrounds. If you are among the brightest, hardest-working, and highest-achieving students in your school or college, you are likely to be a serious applicant. We urge you to consider applying.
