Length of Term
9-week term; 8 weeks of lectures

Five places are available in the Michaelmas Term and five are available in the Lent Term. Students may apply for either one or both terms, and must apply to a second program option in addition to Cambridge.
The heart of the Cambridge curriculum is the tripos system. Students study in one tripos or subject that corresponds to their Caltech option. All of their courses abroad must be in the same tripos. See handout for details about coursework.
Note: Students cannot take a class that is completed in the next term. So when looking at courses for application course lists or for enrolling, make sure the class does not continue past the term you will be there.
Students may not return to the U.S. during the term abroad.
