The University of Cambridge, founded in 1209, has a world-wide reputation for outstanding academic achievement and is consistently ranked as one of the world’s best universities. It is formed from a variety of institutions, which include 31 Colleges and more than 100 academic departments. The Colleges are governed by their own regulations, but are integral to the make-up of the University of Cambridge. All students are members of a College; this is the place where they eat, live, socialize and receive their supervisions.

St John’s College, which was founded in 1511, is one of the biggest Colleges in Cambridge and one of the most stunning places in the world for students to live and learn!


Wentworth Institute of Technology

At Wentworth, academics serve as a foundation — an exceptionally sturdy foundation — intended to be built upon by other learning opportunities, such as labs and co-op experiences. Honoring our tradition of out-of-classroom learning, all undergraduate students are required to spend a minimum of two semesters in a co-op program, regardless of the college or their major. This multifaceted academic approach stems from our commitment to the tenets of EPIC Learning (Externally collaborative, Project-based, Interdisciplinary Culture.)

EPIC Learning provides an educational experience that closely mirrors the environments and challenges found in real workplaces — the pace, the unpredictability, and the need for creative problem-solving and collaboration. Through hands-on, experiential learning activities, students put theory into practice and gain competence and confidence as they engage in trial-and-error exercises in real-world situations. They emerge with a newfound understanding of their own abilities and the impact they can make in the world.

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees are awarded in the following majors: applied mathematics (three year program with a four-year option,) applied science (beginning Fall 2019), architecture, biological engineering, biomedical engineering, business management (optional concentrations in entrepreneurship or project management), civil engineering, computer engineering, computer information systems, computer networking, computer science, construction management (concentration in facilities management), electromechanical engineering (5 year program), electrical engineering, engineering (interdisciplinary), industrial design, interior design, and mechanical engineering. Baccalaureate degrees in architecture and interior design are designated as first professional degrees. Minors are also offered in varied disciplines.
