About The Program

Cambridge, a university town with a winding river and leafy green meadows, has been home to prime ministers, writers, and scientists. More like a university with a city around it, Cambridge hosts buildings that have remained unchanged for centuries. Students and scholars cycle along cobblestone paths. Cambridge’s teaching style includes small groups intensely focused in classroom interaction, discussion, and personalized feedback. Lectures by visiting experts enhance your learning. Outside of class, play croquet and punt on the River Cam or attend film nights, including the open-air Shakespeare festival in the college gardens. Join in Cambridge tradition at semi-formal dinners with drink receptions for students and faculty.

Where you'll study

Unrivaled in its reputation for first-class education and scholarship, Cambridge is a remarkable place to live and learn. Studying at the University of Cambridge, you’ll be attending the alma mater of Newton, Darwin, Byron and many other poets, politicians, and philosophers who’ve illuminated all branches of learning and enterprise. You’ll take classes at the university’s Pembroke campus. Despite being in the heart of a busy tourist city, the Pembroke College grounds, with its peaceful open court and beautiful mature gardens, is a haven of calm. Pembroke has common rooms called parlors. The undergraduate Junior Parlor, or JP, is the perfect place to relax, play a little pool, and read on comfy sofas. Pembroke is unique in its long experience of delivering high quality short-term programs for international students and offers an unrivalled opportunity to live and study in Cambridge.


Optional field trips and activities to introduce the local culture are available through your host university. Most events are free or discounted, but some come with an additional cost not included in UCEAP fees.
