Teaching & Learning

Our personal approach to teaching starts when we select students, and continues throughout the duration of their courses.

We believe it is important to support a wide range of subjects, and Emmanuel has a large proportion of teaching Fellows, usually at least one in all Arts & Science subjects. Each year we ensure that the proportion of students reading a particular subject reflects the student body across the University, therefore we are not dominated by any specific subject.


Cambridge terms are usually eight weeks in length, and teaching & examinations are concentrated within these. Emmanuel undergraduates usually live in College for a week before term starts and one after the term ends.

The pace of learning in Cambridge is intense, and sometimes the courses can challenge even the most talented students. We tailor teaching to our undergraduates, ensuring that supervisors & students work closely together and academic support is provided.
