The Cambridge international curriculum sets a global standard for education and is recognised by universities and employers worldwide. This curriculum is flexible, challenging and inspiring, culturally sensitive yet international in approach. Cambridge students develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. They also gain the essential skills they need for success at university and in their future careers.

Cambridge programmes combine an emphasis on mastering subjects in depth with the development skills for study and work in the future. Value is created in deep subject knowledge as well as the conceptual understanding that helps students make links between different aspects of a subject. Students are encouraged to develop higher order thinking skills – problem solving, critical thinking, independent research, collaboration and presenting arguments. These are transferable skills that will last a lifetime, preparing students for their future lives. They also make learning enjoyable and rewarding.

Cambridge qualifications are recognised as qualifications that prepare and equip students with the skills they need to succeed both at university and beyond. Universities say that they value the independent research and critical thinking skills, as well as the deep subject knowledge that a Cambridge International qualification brings.


Cambridge students get to play an active role in the classroom. They will be asked to think critically, to learn how to construct an argument and evaluate evidence. They will learn to work independently, and to collaborate with one another to bring a project to a successful outcome (and if it’s not successful, they’ll also learn lessons from reflecting on why that might be). And they’ll be encouraged to develop an international outlook, and become confident, global citizens.

Cambridge assessments recognise, reward and encourage learning. Students are given many ways to show their learning, including written exams, practicals, orals and coursework.
