Program and Curriculum
One of the most distinctive characteristics of our courses (also called Triposes at Cambridge) is that they cover the subject area very broadly in the initial years and then offer a wide range of options in which to specialise in the later years. Cambridge is known and respected across the globe for the excellence of our teaching and research, and the quality of our graduates. Not only are you taught in the lecture theatre by academics who are experts in their field, but our supervision system means that you receive more personal tuition from them too. We offer 30 undergraduate courses at Cambridge covering more than 65 subject areas.

What Cambridge look for in an undergraduate applicant
What we look for?
We're looking for students who really want to learn about the subject they've applied for and aren't just interested in the degree at the end, important though this is.There's no blueprint for an ideal Cambridge student and we want to give applicants as many opportunities as possible to demonstrate their strengths and potential.As our admissions decisions are based on academic criteria, we expect to see evidence of students’ super-curricular activities and wider engagement with their area(s) of academic interest, such as reading and other exploration relevant to the course applied for.
