Cambridge and India


Studying in Cambridge

The University's student population is drawn from the brightest school and university leavers. The education and research opportunities our students receive are first class: students learn from world-leaders in their subject; the collegiate structure creates a strong sense of community; the 'supervision' system provides undergraduates with personal tuition and postgraduates with the guidance they need to make the most of the superb research facilities available.

Around 20% of full-time undergraduate students are from outside the UK. At graduate level, around 60% of full-time students come from outside the UK. Many overseas students, including those from India, are supported by bursaries from the Cambridge Trusts.

In 2016-17 there are over 300 students from India studying in Cambridge at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
