Description

Join students from across the United States and Canada and a distinguished faculty for our 36th summer at Cambridge University, one of the oldest and greatest centers of learning in the world. Live, dine, and study together at Gonville and Caius College, founded in 1348. Immerse yourself in local customs, history, and cultural offerings. Learn about England through courses and daily contact with faculty members from Cambridge University and the University of New Hampshire. Cambridge is one of England's loveliest cities. College courtyards of ancient stone buildings line the banks of the River Cam, and gardens abound.

Choose 2 courses from 6 offerings in English literature and history. All courses are taught by Cambridge University or University of New Hampshire professors.

Students live in private rooms at Gonville & Caius College on Trinity Street, in the heart of downtown Cambridge. Morning and evening meals are held in a magnificent, medieval-style dining hall. On occasion, join the faculty for dinner at High Table. Weekly excursions take students to London, Dover, Canterbury, Stratford-on-Avon, and other destinations in the U.K.

The program is open to all second-, third-, and fourth-year undergraduates with a minimum GPA of 2.50; all graduate students with a minimum GPA of 2.50; a limited number of first-year students with exceptional records; and anyone who has completed their formal education with a minimum of one full year of college.

Highlights

* All courses are taught by Cambridge University or University of New Hampshire professors.

* Take your morning and evening meals in a magnificent, medieval-style dining hall. On occasion, join the faculty for dinner at High Table.
* Travel to London, Stratford-on-Avon, and other destinations in the U.K. on our weekly excursions.
* Explore Cambridge, a magnificent historical city filled with stunning architecture, art, music, theatre, gardens, greens, pubs, punts, monuments and more.
* Have tea at The Orchard in nearby Grantchester, the lovely village where, 100 years ago, Virginia Woolf, Rupert Brooke, Bertrand Russell, John Maynard Keynes, Augustus Johns and others associated with the Bloomsbury Group spent their summers studying and debating art, literature, economics, politics, and cultural norms.
* Engage in just such conversations with students from the U.S. and, perhaps, elsewhere, who will be your classmates at Caius this summer.
