Our Cambridge College Summer School takes place at Clare College, Cambridge University. Clare College was founded in 1326, making it the second oldest surviving college at the University of Cambridge. Students will take the iconic walk across the River Cam as they travel between Memorial Court and Old Court throughout the programme. The programme offers students the opportunity to live and study in the heart of Cambridge, providing a truly inspiring experience.
Clare College is located on the banks of the River Cam, just a short walk from the centre of Cambridge. With views of King’s College and Queen’s College, the location is one of the most iconic in the city.
All students are accommodated on-campus in twin en-suite study rooms. Rooms are arranged in traditional staircases, with separate accommodation for male and female students. Meals are provided in the traditional buttery, or the modern Garden Room. Our team of College Mentors also live on-campus to provide pastoral support throughout your stay.
Studying away from home can be exciting and daunting, and students will face new experiences socially and academically. Cambridge College Summer School offers a safe and secure environment for students to study and relax in. We have 1 member of staff to every 6 students and our dedicated staff team are available 24 hours a day to assist with any needs that they might have during their stay with us.
The balance of support, supervision and mentoring from our staff ensures that all college students make the most of their summer college experience. Summer Boarding Courses is committed to the safeguarding and protection of all students in our care. We pride ourselves on offering the best possible support to students, confirmed by an official Area of Strength in The Care of Under 18s, and Care of Students by the British Council accreditation scheme.
Cambridge College Summer School is operated by Summer Boarding Courses Ltd who will handle all payments and enquiries. Summer Boarding Courses Ltd is an organisation which contracts with Clare College for the use of the facilities, but has no formal connection with the University of Cambridge.
