Program Description:
IFSA-Cambridge
IFSA - UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE, PEMBROKE COLLEGE PARTNERSHIP
Geotag  Cambridge, England

WHY STUDY IN CAMBRIDGE?
Founded as lively market town with wide stretches of green along the River Cam, Cambridge is now a quintessential university town with history and charm. The city skyline is dotted with college spires, medieval buildings, and traditional English architecture. The university’s 31 colleges provide a steady stream of entertainment and social events seven days a week, with central London just an hour away by train.

ABOUT THE 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 the University of Cambridge. Rather, Cambridge has the supervision system, which is a weekly one-on-one, or in a small group, with your supervisor, in which you discuss your work and the topics that you are studying, ask questions, and receive feedback. Students typically take two courses, called ‘papers’ at Cambridge per semester. Each paper typically consists of eight hour-long supervisions. A course of lectures also supplements your supervisions for each paper, and your supervisor will advise you about which lectures you should attend. 

You may study in one of the following departments:
  • Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic Studies
  • Archaeology
  • Asian and Middle Eastern Studies
  • Classics
  • Economics
  • Education
  • English
  • History
  • History of Art
  • Linguistics
  • Mathematics
  • Modern and Medieval Languages
  • Philosophy
  • Human, Social, and Political Science (Political Science, International Affairs, Anthropology)
  • Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion

CULTURAL ENGAGEMENT ACTIVITIES & EXCURSIONS
