They can choose from topics as diverse as Genetics, Aerospace Engineering, Zoology, or International Relations. 

Beyond the classroom, Cambridge boasts a thriving cultural scene and our Activities Directors ensure students are presented with a variety of activities every day - from Shakespeare Festivals to expert talks with eminent guest speakers, evensong in King’s College’s famous chapel (begun in 1446), expert-led museum tours, and talent nights. Our team also organizes multiple sporting events, such as punting sessions on the River Cam, outings to a Cambridge United football match, and to a local air show.

About Cambridge

Cambridge is one of Britain’s most ancient towns: there’s evidence of human occupation going back 3,500 years. The Anglo-Saxons knew it as “Grantebrycge,” after a bridge crossing the Granta River. Eventually the name transformed into “Cambridge,” and the river was renamed the" Cam" to match! The town has had a reputation for academia since at least the 900s thanks to monks who were living and teaching in nearby Ely. But it was scholars from Oxford fleeing violent townspeople who created the University of Cambridge in 1209. They founded Peterhouse, the first of its colleges, in 1284. In its near-1000-year existence, Cambridge has built a reputation as a hub of the sciences, having been home to Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Francis Crick, and James Watson.
