Program Overview

Program Description:
Cambridge University, over 800 years old, is one of the world’s oldest and most famous universities. Founded in the 13th century, the University of Cambridge is composed of more than 30 individual colleges, and has been the nurturing intellectual home of many notables over the centuries, including Charles Darwin, Isaac Newton, Christopher Marlowe, John Harvard, Lord Byron, A.A. Milne, James Watson & Francis Crick, John Milton, and countless others. The Cambridge Summer Schools offer you the opportunity to live in a Cambridge college and join over a thousand other international students from over 50 countries who gather in Cambridge each summer to study and socialize together. There are two interdisciplinary terms, plus six specialized terms, so students can participate for 2-week, 4-week, or 6-week intervals, earning 3-9 hours of academic credit on their USF/Tampa transcript. While in the UK, students have time for sponsored weekend excursions to various sites, such as London, Stratford, Canterbury, Stonehenge, etc., with optional independent travel to London, Edinburgh, Paris, Amsterdam.

All courses are taught at the undergraduate level, so students receive 3000 or 4000 level credit.

Setting Description:

The weather is conducive to countryside walking, village bicycling, punting on the Cam River, and strolling the gardens with their colorful herbaceous borders. What better place to st
