Hear from our students
Jesus College has all the benefits of being large, historical and prestigious college, whilst also retaining fantastic welfare: the staff and other students all care about each other, and will be there to cheer you on when you are thriving, but also there to support you if you need any help.
I chose Jesus due to several reasons, including its prime location, where it is very central, and easy to access everywhere, even if you work in one of the institutes further out. I also selected Jesus for its MCR...
Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of ReligionRead more
The Theology Tripos is possibly the most varied arts course available at undergraduate level - at least, that's been my impression. There is huge flexibility from the very beginning: the only compulsory papers in the first year are a language (there's a choice of four) and either the Old or New Testament paper.
Other than that, it's possible to tailor your study to suit your interests. I opted for the church history paper and Christian doctrine in my first year. This year, I've carried on with Hebrew and Old Testament...

History of Art at Cambridge gives you the opportunity of both broad and specific study. In the first year I studied one painting in significant detail by completing a short dissertation, while the Making and Meaning courses provided a firm background in 2000 years of art history.

For me, the most exciting aspect of History of Art...
Architecture at Cambridge is centred around studio work, where a design project is compiled into a final portfolio. My projects have varied greatly, with tutors from various architectural practices providing different insights into the design process.
I have approached architecture both from the scale of the private room, investigating spaces through filmic and literary precedents, and from the scale of the city in a collaborative and realistic masterplan that takes into account socioeconomic and cultural issues within a community. The research based ethos of the department is evident in the...
Modern and Medieval LanguagesRead more
Modern and Medieval Languages (MML) is a hugely flexible course that allows you to explore the history, film, art, literature, linguistics, and thought of the languages that you study. In my first year alone, I studied medieval French literature, 17th century Mexican poetry, and French Nouvelle Vague cinema!
Jesus is the perfect place to study MML at Cambridge. With its beautiful, spacious grounds and friendly, tight-knit community of students and staff, it’s a supportive and stimulating place to work and live. There’s always something going on in College, from sport...
