University of Cambridge Homerton College

University of Cambridge
Homerton College is the largest and one of the most diverse colleges at the University of Cambridge. At Homerton, there is a blend of long-established University traditions with a modern forward-thinking approach. 



Homerton’s first premises were acquired in London in 1768 – making 2018 the 250th anniversary of Homerton’s foundation – although its origins go back to the late seventeenth century. The College has always had strong ties to public service as well as academia, and over the years has educated alumni of considerable influence, including prominent dissenting thinkers, educationalists, politicians, and missionary explorers.


The Homerton International Programme not only enhances your English Language but also provides practical language skills for working in an international environment. It also inspires students to undertake further study in the future in the UK.


Studying on the Homerton International Programme would be an excellent opportunity to improve your English, whilst also enhancing your critical thinking skills. You will have an opportunity to network with Cambridge students.
