Students on the Cambridge Tradition attend one or two Sessions and choose one course per Session. Popular courses include Aerospace Engineering, Astronomy and Astrophysics, International Espionage, Medicine, and Psychology.
The Cambridge Tradition is based at Jesus College, whose buildings date back to the twelfth century, and counts notable figures such as Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Thomas Cranmer, and Prince Edward among its alumni.

In Cambridge, students live in rooms that are occupied by undergraduates during the year. Students are housed in singles or doubles. Students can request a private bathroom (for a fee), on a first-come, first-served basis.
Students address Political Theory through close textual study of some of its most influential thinkers, such as Confucius, Chanakya, Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, and Marx. They consider the thinkers in their contexts and go on to address their long-term influence on different forms of political organization. Alongside, they broaden their approach to address some of the other factors, such as race, gender, inequality, sustainability, and ethics, that, today, inform political debate and theory. The course culminates in students elaborating a political theory for the 21st century.
Every class is designed to use Cambridge as a teaching tool. When not in class, students have access to a full range of optional activities designed to help them discover Cambridge and immerse themselves in English life. They can go on tours of local sights, go on field trips, take part in sporting activities.
