Undergraduate Study


Clare is a thriving community that is home to students from all backgrounds and from all over the world. Diverse and inclusive, it is known for its friendly and supportive environment, its bright, engaged students, and its vibrant College life.

Situated in the very heart of Cambridge, the beautiful buildings and gardens of Clare extend to both sides of the river, forming part of the famed ‘Cambridge Backs’.

Accommodation is provided for all undergraduates throughout their time at the College. Clare has its own well-stocked library, sportsground, gym and music practice rooms. The University Library is immediately adjacent to the College site, and many faculties and departments are also nearby.

Clare has a large and active teaching Fellowship, providing inspiration and academic guidance for students. The College accepts applications in all subjects and the Fellows have a vast range of teaching and research interests. Staff and students work closely together, and there are student representatives on all major committees.

There is a wide range of College societies, including politics, drama, comedy, and numerous sports clubs. Societies also bring Fellows and students together for lectures and social events. Clare has a very strong musical tradition, with an internationally renowned choir. In addition, the College bar is a favourite venue for live music.

The College has open days in July and September and welcomes school visits. Please see the Clare website or contact the Admissions Office for more information.

Clare has given me simply the best university life I could have hoped for, both academically and socially. What a wonderful College to be part of for three years!
