Clare College Clare is a forward-looking College with a tradition of academic achievement and a strong reputation for its friendly, unpretentious student community. College life centres on the elegant seventeenth-century Old Court, set by the river in central Cambridge.

At Clare, diversity is important to us and we accept students from all educational backgrounds. Applicants come to us with very varied educational experiences and we assess them individually, looking for academic ability and intellectual potential combined with enthusiasm and commitment. Staff and students work closely together to achieve a supportive egalitarian community, and student representatives have voting rights on all major College committees.

With its large and active teaching Fellowship, Clare is the College for students who enjoy the challenge of hard work, want to stretch themselves to their fullest abilities, make friends and develop their extra-curricular interests. As well as its thriving societies for politics, sports, comedy, drama and much else, Clare has a strong musical tradition: the choir has achieved international acclaim, while the crypt is a favourite venue for live music. Just across the river, directly opposite the University Library, lies the Memorial Court complex, where all first-year students are housed in spacious accommodation, most of it en suite. Most of the arts and sciences faculties are only five minutes’ walk away, and Clare has one of the University’s best stocked libraries.

What stands out about Clare for me, aside from its amazing beauty and location, is its well-deserved reputation for being a friendly College. I can’t think of a place in which I’d rather live and work. Harry
