Cambridge Seminars College is located in the heart of Cambridge, with the City centre only a five minute cycle ride or a ten minute walk away from the college.

Cambridge is a small, beautiful city about 50 minutes north of London on the train. It combines the old with the new spectacularly well – you are surrounded by historic and ancient architecture as well as brand new and ultra modern buildings. Students account for about a fifth of the city’s population, so you will be becoming an important part of this diverse community when you come to study here.

Despite it being such a small city, there is a wide selection of entertainment and leisure in Cambridge however you choose to spend your free time. Further information about Cambridge and guides to life in the city can be found at:

Cambridge caters for people of all religions and there are facilities and communities for followers of all the major religions including a wide range of Christian churches (Catholic, Anglican, Baptist and Methodist) as well as synagogues, mosques and temples.

With a population of 120,000, Cambridge is a small, safe town, with a low crime rate and everything is within walking distance. More adventurous students may decide to buy or rent a bicycle to get around the city more quickly or to explore the outlying villages.

“I have been studying English at Cambridge Seminars College. It has been a fantastic experience as the college has looked after me so well. As I transferred from a Chinese university my needs were very different to the usual foundation students, yet Cambridge Seminars organised a programme that suited my specific needs so that I could return to China together with an academic diploma as well as a business certificate. I am so happy to have chosen this college as they really did everything possible to accommodate my demands.”
Qui Hailong, from China, went on to study Business Management in a Chinese university

“Cambridge Seminars is a tutorial college that will definitely get you into a good university. The students were warm and friendly. You are bound to learn with the small class sizes. As I move onto higher level education I will never forget the people who made it happen.”
Daniel Vasquez from Mexico, went on to study Economics at Loughborough University.

“Thank you so much for encouraging me, being there when I needed support and guidance and believing in my ability. If not for the caring environment, I would never had the chance to get into the University and course of my choice. I can never thank you enough for the learning you gave me.”
Dawn Chan from Singapore, went on to study law at Newnham College, University of Cambridge

“I wanted to thank you for the excellent time Peter spent with you. It was hard work for him, but he received a great deal from it. He has grown in confidence and has made some good friends. Not to mention that for the first time in his life he has been part of a football team. You create an amazing atmosphere at the college.”
Mari Markus Gomri, from Italy went on to study Politics at the University of York.
