Spend your summer studying at the University of Cambridge, the alma mater of Isaac Newton, Stephen Hawking, and Jane Goodall, to name a few. Hosted by King’s College and Pembroke College, two of the university’s 31 autonomous colleges, your summer in historic Cambridge will engage you academically and culturally.
Take course work within your field of study, or branch out and take a class in a new discipline. No matter the subject, you’ll receive direct interaction with your lecturers in small discussion-based classes. During your free time, explore The university beautiful parks, river-side restaurants, and prestigious museums in the charming city of Cambridge.
This six-week program at one of the world’s oldest universities lets you experience the unique Cambridge-style learning of small class sizes with a focus on intense classroom discussion and individual feedback and support. Choose three courses from a wide variety of disciplines including Science, Mathematics, Business, Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities.
In place of one of your courses, you can choose to develop your research and project management skills through an optional Independent Supervision based on your academic interest. Especially recommended for students intending to pursue research or graduate studies, you will meet with a Cambridge expert weekly to work on a series of research-based papers or a longer dissertation.

When you study abroad in Cambridge, you’ll join the ranks of historic and contemporary scholars that have called this city home.
Take classes at the world-renowned University of Cambridge that has served as one of the academic powerhouses of the English-speaking world for centuries. Your classmates and professors come from around the world and offer their international perspectives to small-class discussions. Engage in the unique Cambridge-style learning to strengthen your critical thinking, research, and writing skills.
Outside of the classroom, enjoy all that the city of Cambridge has to offer. Punt along the River Cam, hike to Castle Mound for a panoramic view, and discover your new favorite cafes and shops on Mill Road. A hub for arts and culture, Cambridge hosts a number of theaters, music venues, and outdoor festivals.
We strive to make sure you feel safe, cared for, and at home while you’re away from home. Whether it’s the orientation program that makes you feel prepared, your housing that is well-located and comfortable, the cultural events that make it easy and fun to meet other international and local students, or the field trips and walking tours that take you to places tourists don’t usually see—we’re all about our student service.
