University of Cambridge Pembroke-King's Programme

About the Program

The Pembroke-King’s Programme (PKP) offers an exceptional opportunity for undergraduates and graduates to experience Cambridge student life over six weeks. Living in Pembroke or King’s Colleges, students choose three courses, from over 40 on offer, all ‘Cambridge’ in style, content and standard. Outside of class, a diverse and fun range of social, cultural and sporting activities is on offer, together with exciting travel options around the UK and Europe. 

Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.

Note that Pembroke College offers two other programs, International Security and Intelligence and Creative Writing in Cambridge, which are not credit bearing.

Transfer credits are only granted for courses with academic content and may not be granted for cultural activities or intensive language courses. Please speak to a departmental advisor if you have any questions.
