We are an academic community devoted to excellence in learning, scholarship, and research. Every year, we take the very best students, irrespective of social profile, and provide them with a world-class education, challenging them to achieve their full potential.
Regularly ranking amongst the top Cambridge colleges in exam results and with 32 Nobel Prize winners amongst its Fellowship, Churchill has the very strongest intellectual reputation.
The College’s founders placed great emphasis on the study of science and technology, but they also recognised the advantages of a diverse academic community. As a consequence, Churchill offers most of the undergraduate courses available at Cambridge. Whilst we retain a focus on science subjects, we are a large college and students in the arts and humanities are as numerous here as they are in many other Cambridge colleges.
In addition to providing world-class teaching and academic support, we help students reach their full potential by providing a supportive environment in which they can focus on their studies without unnecessary interruption or worry. Our large campus enables us to provide unrivalled accommodation, dining, sporting, and social facilities, while an active student body and calendar of college events offer social and academic opportunities to meet new people and make lasting friendships.
We take a careful, holistic approach to admissions and actively encourage applications from people from a great diversity of backgrounds.
If you are among the very ablest and highest-achieving students in your school or college, you are likely to be a serious candidate, and we strongly urge you to consider applying.
Churchill is able to guarantee on-site accommodation to all undergraduates for the full duration of their three or four-year degrees.
Living on campus means that you can easily access all of our facilities and support services.
It’s one of the key advantages of Churchill and helps give us our strong sense of community.
We have a wealth of virtual open day resources to give you a flavour of life as an undergraduate here. We also have a series of Live Zoom Q&A sessions that you can sign up to as well as a new video on the application process presented by our Senior Tutor and Admissions Tutor.
