Undergraduate Study

 

Caius is a large, friendly College based around three beautiful courts in the very centre of Cambridge. Founded in 1348, the College is known for its diverse student body, its academic ambition, and its strong sense of community.

Applicants are considered individually and selected solely on academic merit, regardless of school, social or national background. The life of the College is enriched by the diversity which characterises our student body. To help everyone settle in, we operate a full freshers’ programme and a ‘parenting scheme’ to welcome new students into the College community.

Caius has more than 100 Fellows. The range of teaching and research interests within the College is huge; all undergraduate courses are offered and supported at the highest level and students form close working relationships with academics. Many subjects have their own societies within the College, bringing together students and Fellows for social events, discussions and lectures.

Exceptional accommodation is provided for all students throughout their time at Cambridge. We encourage students to eat together in the College Hall, but all accommodation is equipped with cooking facilities. Every first year has a modern en suite study bedroom. Students in other years ballot for rooms in the medieval Old Courts, or in city-centre College-owned houses.

We have a superb library, containing over 100,000 books and journals. We also offer excellent music, art and sporting facilities, including our own large, central sports ground and a gym. In addition, the College supports a wide range of very successful clubs and societies – if you want to do it, you can do it at Caius. Visit us and see for yourself.

Maybe what’s most impressive about the societies at Caius is the general atmosphere of inclusion, development and achievement.
