A Cambridge education offers you the chance to engage with academics at the forefront of cutting-edge research and to contribute to solving some of our global challenges.Here you will have the opportunity to pursue your intellectual curiosity and acquire the habits of mind which will enhance your future experience of life, whatever turn it may take.

One of Cambridge’s great strengths lies in the partnership between the University and the Colleges. This combination provides superb facilities, contact with the very best minds, and personal tuition and support to help develop your academic interests. We pride ourselves on the close level of pastoral care provided by College tutors, support staff and student-run networks.

We also provide many opportunities to engage socially – in activities such as sports, performance and literary arts, debating and voluntary work – as well as to develop knowledge and transferable skills to prepare you for the future.

By offering generous financial support we are confident that the education we provide is truly accessible to all  with the academic ability and potential to succeed here. There is no ‘right background’ for Cambridge – no right school to have attended, no hidden test of social and economic circumstances.

Quite simply, if you have the ability, the enthusiasm and the motivation to study here, then we want you to apply to us.
