Lucy Cavendish College is a truly global student community and international students make up a significant proportion of our student population. We have a long history of admitting and supporting students from all over the world.

We offer a unique student experience: one that combines the historic traditions and world-leading education for which Cambridge is renowned with a modern, informal, home-from-home environment in our College. The College houses a vibrant, diverse, international community, with a mission to address scientific, social and technological global challenges.
