The IFSA Difference
Academics at University of Cambridge, Pembroke College Partnership
There are no traditional classes at Cambridge University. Rather, Cambridge has the Tripos system, which encompasses three components: lectures, supervisions and exams. Students typically have one supervision per term, attend lectures throughout the terms and take exams at the end of the year.
Students applying for Pembroke College may study in one of the following departments:
- Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic Studies
- English Language and Literature
- History of Art
- Middle Eastern Studies
- Human, Social, and Political Science (Political Science, International Affairs, Anthropology)
If you are accepted to study at Pembroke College, a head tutor will contact you to discuss your supervision topic for your first term. You will submit your supervision preferences shortly after admission, but these topics cannot be guaranteed or arranged until a student is able to meet in person with the Director of Studies. Explore the course overview booklet for more information.
Withdrawal from this program after acceptance of an admissions offer is a very bad idea, as the cancellation policy is very strict. No exceptions are granted, even for illness or other unforseen circumstances.
Please review all your syllabi and course materials when you are registering for classes (both pre-arrival and on-site). Certain classes may have a one-off lab or field trip fee that is disclosed in the syllabus or first meeting of class. You will be responsible for these fees, whether they are billed and paid by IFSA or billed to you.
