Come and study with unrivalled academic support and pastoral care, living onsite as a member of an international, egalitarian and inclusive community of scholars from Cambridge and across the world.
The College continues to follow the advice of the University and public health authorities. The health and wellbeing of our students, staff and community are our first priorities. These pages are updated regularly.
This year’s Wolfson Explores theme aims to stimulate another rich, productive dialogue across interdisciplinary and cultural borders. So it’s appropriate that our 2021 theme is: BORDERS. We look forward to seeing creative interpretations across a wide range of fields, from the arts to the sciences, from the theoretical to the practical, from macroscopic to microscopic – and perhaps testing the borders between them!
Wolfson is a lively and welcoming place to live, with an engaged student community and a wide-ranging programme of events from live concerts to academic lectures to weekly welfare tea – with cake. Our Porters are the friendliest in Cambridge and our Howler comedy nights are legendary. We host visiting academics from all over the world and – with no High Table and social spaces shared by all – you will be stimulated culturally, socially and intellectually.
Teaching & Learning
We are the College of choice for world-class postgraduates, mature undergraduates and returning learners. We offer excellence in teaching and support through a cohort of outstanding supervisors and Directors of Studies who allow every member of College to realise their full potential. Our active and engaged Fellowship underpins and enhances the College experience, providing mentorship and guidance both academically and professionally.
Our diversity helps foster new perspectives and new insights in every field of scholarship.
