Spring Semester Programme
Applications for the 2016 Spring Semester Programme are now open!
Each year Pembroke College accepts around thirty students from overseas universities for a two-term semester of study (mid-January to mid-June) at the University of Cambridge.
This prestigious Spring Semester Programme requires applicants to meet the same high standards as those applying for an undergraduate degree at Cambridge. Semester students matriculate (become full members of the University) and thus take the same lectures and participate in the same extracurricular activities as Cambridge students, and they live in University accommodation.
Spring Semester students normally follow a standard undergraduate programme during the Lent and Easter Terms of the academic year, working one-on-one with leading academics. Students arrive the weekend before the beginning of Full Lent Term, and leave on the weekend after Full Easter Term. The last week of Easter Term, known as ‘May Week’ despite it being in June, is famous for its parties, concerts, college balls and garden parties and is an ideal way to round off this exceptional Cambridge experience.
