Information for Prospective Students
Thinking about Natural Sciences?
The Natural Sciences Tripos is the framework within which most of the science is taught in Cambridge. It is taught by sixteen Departments and includes a wide range of physical and biological sciences and the history and philosophy of science.
This part of the website is designed to provide prospective students with a starting point to learn more about the Tripos. You are encouraged to visit the websites of Departments involved in the Tripos for more detailed information about individual courses.
