One of the biggest benefits of studying at Cambridge is our Collegiate system, which is designed to throw you into a multidisciplinary, multicultural pool of friends and ideas. Our PhD students often talk about the huge impact that this has has on their research.

From day one our PhD students become full members of the CJBS research community. Faculty and students work together closely to advance ideas, enhance each other’s work and start important academic conversations. This combination of a strong research focus, a constructive atmosphere and a highly collaborative approach creates an ideal learning environment for research students aspiring to a career in academia.
