Program Description:
The University of Cambridge is comprised of 29 colleges and halls which admit, teach, and house undergraduates for the roughly 30 undergraduate courses of study offered by the University.  Only a handful of colleges accept visiting non-degree students.  Cornell Abroad works with:
Pembroke College (spring only)
Robinson College (AcYr only)
Fitzwilliam College (AcYr only)
For specific information on each college, please visit that College's website on the University of Oxford website.

Application Process
Students should apply via the general Cambridge application first and after receiving official endorsement from Cornell Abroad, then the simple college-specific paperwork will be added.  Alayne Prine will review all completed applications after Nov. 15 and will contact students regarding endorsement and next steps.   If Alayne finds that your application does not meet the admissions requirements, she may recommend alternative program options.
