Magdalene College, Cambridge University

English Language Summer Course for Students Aged 16-25

Students will live in Magdalene College, which is one of Cambridge University’s oldest, most famous and most beautiful colleges. Magdalene College was founded in 1428 and is one of the oldest colleges in Cambridge University. The main courtyard and its small church were both built around 1470, while the famous Pepys library dates from about 1700.

The college is set on the banks of the River Cam, which flows through the centre of Cambridge; many of the student bedrooms have views over the river. The college is situated in the heart of the historic centre of Cambridge, close to the river, the beautiful colleges and stunning architecture of the university – so our students will experience Cambridge’s unique atmosphere to the full.
