St Andrew’s College

– Welcome note from the Principal

“I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you, officially, to St Andrew’s College Cambridge. The past few years have been very exciting at St Andrew’s. Every year we broaden our horizons, building on our foundations of academic excellence and a wide and varied extra-curricular programme.

However, we do not plan to rest on our success. Instead, we want to ensure we achieve the goal of becoming the best college possible for each and every one of our students. Some people will say it’s impossible to truly be the best. But we like to think that we have the right idea of how to confront what those naysayers believe.

We prefer to adopt “a healthy disregard for the impossible.” Embracing that thought process will allow opportunities for our students to excel during their time at St. Andrew’s.

 

The college is a wonderfully energetic place and home to students from nations across the world. It is a lively environment where students are motivated to pursue their academic and personal goals through a range of subjects and extra-curricular activities. I am looking forward to welcoming you to our St. Andrew’s community someday soon.”

About
St Andrew’s College

St Andrew’s College Cambridge has been offering both UK and international students the opportunity to study in central Cambridge for over 40 years. The college prides itself on its small size and dedicated teachers who are committed to helping students achieve their personal and academic goals. St. Andrew’s has a family-like atmosphere, with many long-standing members of staff who have served the college for over a decade, helping and supporting students in every aspect of their studies.

 

A broad range of courses is available at St Andrew’s, including Pre-A-level, GCSEs, and A-levels. The college also offers 11 university foundation courses including Architecture, Engineering, and Business. Foundation students have an excellent track record, with 100% of students going on to university study.

 

St Andrew’s offers UK and international students an outstanding education as well as an engaging extra-curricular programme and high-quality accommodation.

Accommodation at St Andrew's

Students live in small boarding houses with 8-18 students in single or double rooms. Every boarding house is overseen by a live-in House Manager, who lives at the residence 52 weeks a year, ensuring all students are safe, cared for, and supervised.

What students can expect from St Andrew’s and what St Andrew’s expects from each student

The college asks all students to do very simple but extremely important things during their time at St Andrew’s. If they do these things, not only will they be successful and improve themselves, the college also will continue to be a place that the whole community can be very proud of.

Be Kind

The expectation is not just of being tolerant of others in the college community, but to truly accept all with kindness.  “To the world you are one person, but to one person you are the world.”

Finding Passion

Whether it is Engineering, Architecture, Law, or Maths, at St Andrew’s we make sure students have the opportunity to find their passion through the classes, clubs, and sports available, and are always invited to start new ones.

Commit to Excellence

In order to succeed, students must commit to:

 

  • Participate in the clubs, sports, and/or activities that are available
  • Earn at least six participation and progress points per term
  • Attend all IELTS classes (if applicable) to ensure they can enhance their learning and fulfil their potential,
