The Chelmsford experience

Untitled Page

From first-class cricket to being home to one of the world’s best international music festivals, you’ll be surprised to discover what Chelmsford has to offer.

As a student here, it won’t take you long to get used to the friendly, laidback atmosphere the city exudes. Small enough to never overwhelm but big enough to explore and discover your own highlights, Chelmsford is a city that quickly feels like home.

The Cambridge experience

Untitled Page

From Newton’s law of universal gravitation to the discovery of the structure of DNA by Crick and Watson, Cambridge has helped to shape the world as we know it. As a student here, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in this world-famous centre of learning.

One of the best things about Cambridge is its size. It’s compact, and easy to explore on foot or by bicycle. Or, of course, you can wander down to the River Cam and hire one of the city’s famous punts. It’s a glorious way to sightsee.
