About Program

Study at one of Cambridge's oldest colleges, in the nexus of historic methods and cutting-edge research. You will have unparalleled access to experts in your discipline in the halls of Pembroke College.

There are no traditional classes at Cambridge University. Rather, Cambridge has the Tripos system, which encompasses three components: lectures, supervisions and exams. Students typically have one supervision per term, attend lectures throughout the terms and take exams at the end of the year.

If you are accepted to study at Pembroke College, a head tutor will contact you to discuss your supervision topic for your first term. You will submit your supervision preferences shortly after admission, but these topics cannot be guaranteed or arranged until a student is able to meet in person with the Director of Studies.

Program Highlights
  • Classic tutorial-based supervisions allow you to delve deeply into your subject area
  • The small group (2 or 3 students) teaching format means that your syllabus is flexible based on your interests, allowing for great academic freedom and research possibilities
  • Study with the best students where admission is extremely competitive
