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...
Studying Archaeology at Jesus has been a fantastic experience. For the last three years, I have been able to choose from an enormous range of papers, allowing me to tailor the course to my personal areas of interest. Throughout this, I have benefited from the continued support of (among other brilliant academic staff in College) an archaeologically-specialised Director of Studies and a well stocked archaeology section in the College library, meaning I rarely need to borrow from the department.
Jesus College also offers a range of travel and study grants...
Human, Social, and Political SciencesRead more
Studying Human, Social, and Political Sciences (HSPS) at Jesus, specialising in sociology in my second and third years, has been such a rewarding experience. We're all given extensive support throughout our three years whichever track we choose to take.
In addition, the College library is well stocked with books we need. With a cohort of about seven students the HSPS contingent is small enough for us to get to know each other really well but big enough to support one another. In short, there's no better College to study HSPS!
Chemical EngineeringRead more
I chose to study Chemical Engineering at Jesus College, mainly because I thoroughly enjoyed the subjects that I studied at A-Level (Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry, and Physics). The course was a natural combination of everything that I’d studied so far, and I’d decided that I wanted a practical career within industry. The course at Cambridge is different to the course at many other universities across the country; rather than immediately studying Chemical Engineering, you choose to study either General Engineering or Natural Sciences in your first year.
You’re taught and...
It is a well-accepted opinion in Cambridge that Jesus College is the best college and no other college even comes a distant second. Its sports grounds are enormous, its buildings are mesmerising, its libraries are rich, its chapel is the oldest, its accommodation is the best value for money, its international community is diverse, its religious circles are the most welcoming, and its members are the smartest, kindest and the friendliest.
It is one of the central colleges that aims to offer three years accommodation to postgraduates, and has comparatively...
