International Summer Programmes - Celebrating 100 Years (1923-2023)

A summer to remember

This year we celebrated our centenary with students from over 60 different countries joining us here in Cambridge. Courses covered a wide range of subjects in the fields of Business and Innovation; Global Challenges; History; Literature, Philosophy and the Visual Arts; and Science. Courses were complemented by a series of plenary lectures, delivered by eminent speakers, showcasing the variety of subjects on offer at the University, as well as research, global current affairs and a range of other topics.

To add to the overall experience students could stay in a Cambridge College, meet with fellow students outside the classroom and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and city centre. 

Students also enjoyed a range of events including garden parties, concerts and weekend excursions.
