Jesus is a wonderful place to live and work. We have some of the best graduate accommodation and facilities in the university, as well as a lovely warm and friendly atmosphere, a highly supportive study and tutorial system, and a fantastically diverse range of people, especially at graduate level.
College provides the perfect environment in which to apply yourself and succeed academically, while also being able to get involved in sports, arts, or the spiritual community. There is also plenty of fun to be had with all of the...
What sets Classics at Jesus apart from other Colleges is the way in which the teaching is inspiring, but not intimidating. If being taught by some of the world's leading authorities in a relaxed and supportive College environment appeals to you, then studying Classics here is something which you should really consider. I count myself lucky every day to have applied to such a warm and sociable College.
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.
The Natural Sciences course is perfect for anybody with a broad interest in science, allowing you to initially take very different combinations of courses before specialising later. I think the fairly wide background in biological sciences I have gained is really important for putting my current research into context.
Cambridge is simply a brilliant place to be a biochemist – it’s an amazing feeling to know that many of the seminal discoveries discussed in lectures were made right here, not least Watson and Crick’s famous determination of the structure...
Studying Maths at Jesus has been fascinating and fun. It has taught me how to think rigorously about the structure of maths, and (on the applied side) how general relativity and quantum mechanics tell us the world works.
Jesus is a great College - just far enough out of the centre of town to be fairly quiet, but still conveniently close to everything, and has great facilities. The Jesus mathematicians have got a pretty good tradition of socials too.
