Cambridge is situated in the east of England, amid the lush countryside
only 80 kilometres from London.
Along with beautiful architecture, outstanding scenery
and a lively student population, Cambridge is famed for its prestigious schools.
800 years of academic triumphs make this a truly inspirational place to study.
It's been the home of great poets, writers, and leading scientists
including Darwin, Newton, and Stephen Hawking.
In a tree-lined neighbourhood, just 10 minutes by bike from the city centre
is the campus of EF Cambridge.
Our building here provides a calm environment where you may focus on your language learning
while studying in an international environment.
You can enjoy the bright and comfortable classrooms, our high-tech language laboratories,
and student lounges with free Wi-Fi access.
The on-site cafeteria provides English and international food.
After class, you may relax in the private garden or perhaps join an EF activity.
Our curriculum caters to students of all levels and abilities,
whether you are on a 2 week intensive course or a 9 month Academic Year Abroad.
EF's academic team in Cambridge is one of our most experienced.
A strong team of teachers will help you build your essential language skills.
Here in Cambridge you can study for the TOEFL.
You can study for IELTS and study for the main suite Cambridge exams.
You can do business English exams.
You can even do a Master English for Information Technology programme.
The internship programme in Cambridge is a very useful way of putting
your professional English into practical use.
What you would do is combine your English course with a work placement in a local company
and we find that students get a great deal out of this because it allows them to practise their English
in environments and organisations where their future career might well lie.
Staying with a host family gives you a chance to experience local life and traditions first-hand,
while practising your English.
Alternatively, stay at our residence alongside students from all corners of the globe,
just moments from the school.
During the summer, you can also choose to study and live on the campus of Clare College
- one of Cambridge University's most famous colleges.
Visit the EF Activities Office for ideas on enjoying your time outside of the classroom.
When you're not in class you can come and see me.
My name is Joe, I'm the Activities Coordinator at EF Cambridge.
I do a range of activities every day for the students, from cultural activities to destinations
such as King's College behind me, to the Fitzwilliam Museum
a little bit down the road, to punting on the river Cam
to sporting activities every day.
We keep you entertained throughout the week
and we also do weekend excursions.
For a big night out, take a train to London
and enjoy a show in the West End, just 50 minutes away.
Or stay in lovely Cambridge and stroll through the cobbled streets
full of shops, student caf├ęs and traditional pubs.
On a sunny day, enjoy the tradition of punting along the River Cam.
Get a taste of British academic life and perfect your English accent
in this captivating academic city.
We look forward to welcoming you to EF Cambridge!
