Program Overview

Program Description:

An opportunity to spend a summer at one of the world's oldest and most elite universities

Three hundred students from all over the world gather for this exclusive opportunity over six weeks in Cambridge each summer, enjoying the academic rigor of this world-renowned institution and its unique learning format.

Pembroke Cambridge Summer Program allows you to choose from a wide array of courses taught in one-on-one Cambridge Supervision style.  Supervisions, offered weekly or bi-weekly,  are a chance for your tutor to discuss points from lectures, comment on your written work, and direct you toward further research.

Courses in world literature, history, science, philosophy, economics, film, art history, behavioral ecology, and more are on offer. You can even design your own supervision on an independently selected, approved  topic. Over the six weeks, you’ll take three courses for a total of nine credits.

This is an unforgettable opportunity to study in one of the world’s oldest and most elite institutions, located in a picturesque medieval town with a long history and rich traditions. London is just an hour away by train.

You’ll experience classic Cambridge traditions and events, with the opportunity to attend weekly Formal Halls, formal dinners in medieval halls by candlelight. You’ll make friends at the events organized daily and weekly by the program, including an excursion to London.
