Cambridge Foundation Year

A fully-funded one-year residential course designed to offer a stepping stone to Cambridge

Why choose a Cambridge Foundation Year at Girton?

The Cambridge Foundation Year is a free and fully-funded one-year residential course designed to offer a stepping stone to Cambridge for those who have experienced educational disadvantage. If you want to study courses in the Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences, are ordinarily resident in the UK, and circumstances have prevented you from realising your academic potential, this is an opportunity not to miss.

Students will have the option of studying here at Girton College or one of the other participating Colleges, and will benefit from the community, support and academic stimulation this offers, which is intrinsic to the Cambridge experience.

Further information on applying to the Foundation Year Programme (for 2022 entry) and the programme’s course structure and content may be found on the CU Undergraduate Study - Foundation Year webpage.
