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.
Wolfson is a lively and welcoming place, with an engaged student community and a wide-ranging programme of events from live concerts to academic lectures to weekly welfare tea. 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 and 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.
The College continues to follow the advice of the University and public health authorities for COVID-19. The health and wellbeing of our students, staff and community are our first priorities. Latest guidance is available on our COVID-19 pages.
Wolfson Explores is our annual events programme, which aims to tackle the big issues and stimulate rich, productive interdisciplinary dialogue. Our theme for 2022 is: Wolfson Explores ✱GROWTH. Look out for talks, debates, exhibitions, music, performances, and more, across a wide range of fields, from the arts to the sciences, from the theoretical to the practical, from macroscopic to microscopic.
Our diversity helps foster new perspectives and new insights in every field of scholarship.
