About Pembroke and King's Colleges
We’re so excited that you’re considering an IFSA-Butler program for your summer abroad and have chosen Cambridge University as your destination. We’re sure you’re going to love studying there!
There are a few specific forms for this program that you will need to complete along with your IFSA-Butler application. You can find the forms under the Forms tab.
What Pembroke and King's has to offer
Where can I find a list of courses that the university offers?
Students will take three courses and may choose any one of the following course combinations:
What courses am I eligible to take?
What if I need to take a required course?
When can I choose my courses?
What is the supervision option?
Because Cambridge must organize a supervisor for any proposed supervisions, students may not know if they have been granted a supervision until they arrive on campus. Cambridge charges an additional tuition fee of about £450 for the supervision option. This fee will be charged in addition to the IFSA-Butler tuition fees. If a supervision is organized for you, you are obligated to participate, and you may not drop the supervision in favor of a regular summer class.
Course RestrictionsStudents must meet the prerequisites for the courses in which they wish to enroll.
How many courses am I able to take, and how do I determine U.S. semester credit hours?
What are the registration conditions?
You should also be aware that you may be charged additional fees by your home institution or host university to take or process additional credits. Taking less than a full course load may jeopardize your student status and result in personal academic repercussions and/or loss of financial aid.
You should discuss your course selections with your academic advisor at your home institution and have several backup choices in mind. You will formally register online before you depart the U.S.

When will I receive my housing assignment?
Please keep in mind that while IFSA-Butler guarantees housing, we cannot guarantee your preferences.
Do I have to pay a housing deposit?
Can I arrange my own housing?
Please be advised that housing costs can be high abroad, and many times students living independently end up spending more money than students living in IFSA-Butler arranged housing. If you are hoping to save money by arranging housing on your own, please research your options early so you can compare costs. You must notify us of your intention to live in independent housing May 1 for summer programs. We are not able to accommodate independent housing requests after this date.
