Live and Study Like a Cambridge Undergraduate
As one of the best universities in the world, Cambridge is a great place to be a student, yet it is one of the most selective of all universities with less than 10% of applications may result in admission. Attending a summer programme at Cambridge University enables international students to live and study in the buildings and colleges of Cambridge University just like the University’s own undergraduates. This provides unique opportunities to not only gain insights and experience the magic life of Cambridge, but also get prepared.

We have two great summer programmes at Cambridge University, which includes advanced study programmes for high-achieving high school students to experience the study life of Cambridge University undergraduates and prepare for studying at UK top universities.
