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...
Asian and Middle Eastern StudiesRead more
I chose to study Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (AMES) at Cambridge due to my love for languages. I was keen to pick up new languages in addition to those which I had studied at school. The AMES tripos is excellent for this: in Years 1 and 2 I studied Arabic and Persian, and in my final year I am studying Arabic and Hindi. The small class sizes are excellent and really aid in the learning of new languages.
The degree is excellent with regards to the choice of modules...

It is a well-accepted opinion in Cambridge that Jesus College is the best college and no other college even comes a distant second.

It is one of the central colleges that aims to offer three years accommodation to postgraduates, and has comparatively...
Natural Sciences (Biological)Read more
I am a second year Natural Scientist at Jesus College studying biochemistry, cell and developmental biology and chemistry. I was particularly drawn to this course as it offers a wide range of both physical and biological subjects, with the opportunity to increasingly specialise over the years. For me studying in this multidisciplinary environment has been hugely beneficial and will be a great advantage for later research.
For Natural Science students, a lot of the contact time is at the University level. I have really enjoyed the opportunity to meet people...
