  About Fitzwilliam College Summer School 

Founded in 1209, the University of Cambridge is the fourth-oldest university in the world. Fitzwilliam College is one of the 31 constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge, with a rich history of inclusive education. Research and education across the 150 faculties and departments of the university cover a vast array of fields. Many of the subjects taught at Cambridge are ranked in the top 5 worldwide by the QS world university rankings by subject.

The Fitzwilliam College Summer School Programme is the official Summer School Programme of Fitzwilliam College in the University of Cambridge. All the courses will be taught by academic members of Fitzwilliam College or one of the other colleges of the University of Cambridge. The same academics who lecture and supervise the undergraduate students at Cambridge will teach you undergraduate-level content. The core of Fitzwilliam's academic activities is a desire to retain 'the best of the old', while enthusiastically embracing 'the best of the new'. Fitzwilliam has always been characterised by discussion, debate and creativity of ideas and full participation in college life should form a positive, rewarding and sustainable part of an academic course. This programme is designed to provide students with a flavour of undergraduate study at Cambridge, and an opportunity to explore topics beyond that covered by school curriculi.
