University of Cambridge International Summer Programmes
Found in 1209, the University of Cambridge is one of the oldest universities in the world, and widely seen as one of the most prestigious higher education institutions with an extraordinary academic reputation and influence in many fields. The University has educated many notable alumni, including 98 Nobel laureates and 15 British prime ministers. Today, it serves more than 18,000 students from all cultures and corners of the world. Nearly 4,000 of its students are international and come from over 120 different countries.
The University is split into 31 autonomous Colleges where undergraduates receive small group teaching sessions known as College supervisions.
The University’s Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) has been educating part-time and adult students since the 1860s and is one of the oldest continuing education departments in the world. ICE offers a huge range of award-bearing and non-award-bearing courses throughout the year, including the world-renowned International Summer Programmes.
