Hear from our students
Jesus is known for being the friendly College, and I really felt that aspect of our ethos while walking around during the open day I attended. This, coupled with the lovely and historic atmosphere, pushed me to apply here.
I chose to study Economics because I appreciate how it explains the world around us via informative interpretations and predictions. Cambridge was the natural choice, given its reputation as having the most rigorous and wide-ranging undergraduate Economics course in the world. I’ve really enjoyed the course’s blend of mathematics, problem-solving and...
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...

My favourite thing about Jesus is its welcoming community, and the plethora of societies on offer for all abilities and interests. Despite never having picked up an oar in my life, I was welcomed right away into Jesus College Boat Club and I’ve found a new passion for rowing! My best Cambridge memory so far is taking part in the ‘Bumps’ rowing race in first year, which was an absolutely exhilarating experience.
I chose Natural Sciences because I loved studying both Biology and Chemistry at A Level, and found myself...
