Learning and Teaching
The University of Cambridge is known worldwide for the excellence of its teaching and research and the quality of its graduates. Its reputation is endorsed by the Quality Assurance Agency and by other external reviewers of learning and teaching, such as External Examiners.
These high standards are the result of both the learning opportunities offered at Cambridge and by its extensive resources, including libraries, museums and other collections. Undergraduate teaching consists not only of a variety of lectures, seminars and practical classes, but also more personalised teaching arranged through the Colleges. There are a range of courses for postgraduate students, including taught courses, courses offering research training and skills and other research opportunities. All students freely interact with scholars of all levels, including those who are world leaders in thie field, both formally and informally.
