Undergraduate Study

 

Murray Edwards College provides academic excellence within a warm and welcoming community. At its heart lies a proactive commitment to improving the opportunities open to women within education and their professional lives.

As a woman at Murray Edwards, you get the best of both worlds – working in a world class co-educational university and in a College with a special focus on women’s learning.

Through our unique Gateway Programme we help you transition to studying in Cambridge, and help build the confidence and skills necessary to succeed. We then support you into the world of work through networking with our diverse body of former students who want to help women get ahead in the workplace.

We have a strong fellowship of both women and men who are dedicated to teaching women and both encourage and challenge you. They provide new ways of thinking about and speaking with the world and allow you to develop those areas of your subject that most interest you as well as helping you to achieve highly. We aid you to drive change in Cambridge and beyond, and we encourage our students to engage fully in all aspects of Cambridge life. Cambridge comes to Murray Edwards too through the events run by the College and by our students.

Our buildings and grounds are light and airy, inspiring not intimidating, and we are able to house all undergraduates on site or very close by, with many en suite rooms, which helps to strengthen the powerful sense of community and which you sense the moment you step inside. Our food, served in the iconic dome, is reckoned among the best in Cambridge and you quickly come to feel that ‘Dome is Home’.

Murray Edwards welcomed me with open arms and has continued to help me every step of the way; from offering Gateway sessions to helping me fund a trip to Italy. Murray Edwards has given me so many opportunities to thrive in my subject.
