You'll love our Cambridge University summer program

Cambridge University is in the heart of the British countryside, located only 65 miles from London. It is the perfect home base for exploring famous castles, abbeys, gardens, palaces – and one of the top universities in the world.

At Summer Discovery Cambridge, we help you prepare for your transition from high school to college. Our pre-college study abroad program combines academics, athletics and sightseeing to give high school students a great introduction to college, in addition to learning about the way of life in London.

During our 31 year partnership with Murray Edwards College at the University of Cambridge, we have provided incredible summer experiences for thousands of students from numerous high schools. Summer Discovery students come from 44 states and over 70 countries. This summer, join us and create long-lasting friendships with students from all over the world.
