Through high-level participation in pan-European bodies, such as the League of European Research Universities, and through strong bilateral relations with institutions in other European countries, the University of Cambridge is committed to active and positive engagement with its partners across Europe.
Over 20% of University postgraduate students are from EU countries. The University is an active participant in the Erasmus+ student-exchange programme and the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions researcher mobility programme.
Cambridge has outstanding breadth and depth in the study of European languages, cultures and history. Teaching is offered in ten EU-official languages; the Department of Slavonic Studies is unique in the UK in offering undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in Russian, Ukrainian and Polish. The DAAD-University of Cambridge Research Hub in German Studies acts as a beacon for the study of German culture, and provides a public platform for the discussion of German themes in the UK. The Centre for European Legal Studies is a focal point for research in European Union Law and European Comparative Law.
The Centre for Science and Policy provides opportunities for decision makers from government and industry across the EU to forge useful and lasting connections with Cambridge researchers. From its Brussels office, the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership brings its expertise and network of leaders direct to European policy makers.
