Benefits of Cambridge education

International curriculum:

Challenging and inspiring students worldwide The Cambridge international curriculum sets a global standard for education and is recognized by universities and employers worldwide. Our curriculum is flexible, challenging and inspiring, culturally sensitive yet international in approach. Cambridge students develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. They also gain the essential skills they need for success at university and in their future careers.

Teaching and learning

Our learner and teacher attributes – confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged – are powerful, aspirational and inspiring. They are built into all of our syllabuses and qualifications to ensure they are relevant, challenging and productive.

An education founded on these attributes inspires in students a love of learning that leads to success in the classroom, in examinations, and throughout a career.

Learning to learn

Our research shows that good learning habits matter. We encourage Cambridge students to reflect on their learning so that they can build on experience and plan ahead. They will be confident, innovative and resourceful, secure in their knowledge yet open to new ideas and opinions. They will also be responsible – to themselves, and  others. These habits lay the foundations for productive study and employment, and are actively promoted and encouraged by Cambridge syllabuses and qualifications.

International recognition

Over 1,400 universities worldwide recognize Cambridge qualifications. They are accepted by every UK university, by 600 universities in the US (including all the Ivy League universities) and  many other major student destinations, such as Canada, Australia, Singapore, South Africa, Germany and the Netherlands. Universities and employers recognize our qualifications as evidence of academic achievement. They understand that the demand for our curricula and the rigour of our assessments give students what they need to flourish in higher education.
