The Cambridge Foundation Year is a unique course intended to provide a stepping stone to Cambridge for students who have been prevented from realising their potential due to educational disadvantage or disruption. The course is a free and fully-funded programme offering study in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. It is only available as a full-time, one-year residential programme, and it is only open to those ordinarily resident in the UK. Prospective Applicants must meet strict eligibility criteria as well as academic entry requirements.
Students will have the option of studying here at Lucy Cavendish or one of the other participating Colleges, and will benefit from the community, support and academic stimulation this offers, which is intrinsic to the Cambridge experience.
Further information on applying to the Foundation Year Programme and the programme’s course structure and content may be found on the Foundation Year website.
