Modern amenities in a traditional building
The EF Executive Institute Cambridge is housed in a quaint Tudor-style building set in beautifully landscaped grounds. You’ll find the Institute equipped with a high-tech language lab and truly modern facilities. This leafy residential neighborhood is within walking distance of the city’s famous university.
Between classes take the opportunity to mingle with your fellow classmates in the charming garden or relax over a cup of tea in the executive lounge. If you’re hungry, our in-house chef can cook you a traditional English lunch or prepare you a light snack.
England’s most prestigious university city
Cambridge is best known for the University of Cambridge, which is made up of 30 colleges scattered throughout the city. Cambridge University has been attracting students for 800 years and has hosted such famous students as John Milton, Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Oliver Cromwell, Prince Edward and Prince Charles. Cambridge University claims more than sixty Nobel Prize winners. With some colleges dating back to the eleventh century and all schools of architecture - from Gothic to Modern - represented, the city is a magnet to anyone with an interest in British history, from King’s College Chapel, which was begun in 1466 by King Henry VI to the Fitzwilliam Museum.
Explore Cambridge on foot, bicycle or boat
Cambridge is a lovely city for walking or cycling. EF staff help arrange for bicycles and organize weekly guided walking tours that take you through the history of Cambridge while taking in the amazing buildings and cobbled streets. After class enjoy a leisurely boat ride (punt) down the river Cam as you cruise by ancient libraries, bridges and arches. Or browse the bookshops near the University – some have been in business for hundreds of years. Be sure to stop for a pint and soak up the atmosphere at a friendly English pub.
