Cambridge Explained Cambridge is structured differently from other universities, and these differences make Cambridge special. To help you get started, let us explain the basics. The Cambridge Advantage: Our courses Cambridge is one of the best universities in the world, offering undergraduate degree courses (also called Triposes at Cambridge) in the arts, social sciences, sciences, engineering and medical sciences.

Flexibility Many encompass several subjects, which means they’re much more flexible than a lot of specialised courses elsewhere – the Index on p156-8 lists all the subjects we offer and in which course(s).

Exploration Most courses cover the subject area broadly to start with before allowing you to choose from a range of specialisms – this means you can explore the subject and your strengths and interests fully before you decide which area to focus on.
