A Traditional University with Modern Academics

With a history predating the United States by nearly 300 years, Jesus College is one of the oldest and most well-known colleges in the University of Cambridge system. The spacious grounds and beautiful architecture are second only to the world-class faculty and students that make up the college.

One University of Pittsburgh student per year is given the opportunity to study in the British tutorial system, taking up three tripos within his or her field of study within the natural sciences.

Beyond academics, Jesus College Cambridge offers a glimpse into traditional university life in England.  Taking meals in the expansive dining hall, engaging in discussions with head tutors, and taking part in various balls throughout the year are just a few of the opportunities available.

An unprecedented opportunity, a year at Cambridge is not easy but is most certainly unforgettable.
