Cambridge: A World Leading Research University

Consistently ranked among the top 5 universities worldwide, the University of Cambridge offers a world leading postgraduate education. With a global outlook and reach, the University of Cambridge’s mission is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence. It is this passion and enthusiasm for study and research that we look for in those seeking postgraduate study at Cambridge.

For over 800 years, the University of Cambridge has cemented its reputation for major advances in theories and knowledge, from Sir Isaac Newton’s speed of sound experiment, to the Keynesian Revolution on managing economies, to Professor Stephen Hawking’s revelatory research into black holes. More recently, Cambridge-led gene therapy trials are helping to improve the treatment of Parkinson’s, the Cambridge-conceived Raspberry Pi is inspiring the next generation of computer programmers, and the MEITS project, led by Cambridge’s Professor Ayres-Bennett, is currently examining the health and social benefits of multilingualism for societies today. Across all academic disciplines, Cambridge postgraduate students are able to benefit from studying in this innovative, progressive, and outward-looking research environment with strong industry links.

Excellence in Teaching and Learning

With over 300 postgraduate courses available across an incredibly broad range of academic disciplines, a wide range of taught and research opportunities are available. Teaching and studying for these courses takes place in the world-renowned facilities of the University’s departments and faculties.

As a postgraduate student at Cambridge, you will receive close individual support in your field. Your department or faculty will assign you a personal supervisor whose role is to guide your programme of study or research. It is this blend of academic challenge and support within a caring and encouraging environment that makes postgraduate study at Cambridge an intellectually rewarding experience.
