Cambridge Pre-U

Cambridge Pre-U is a new post-16 qualification that prepares learners with the skills and knowledge students need to succeed at university. It promotes independent and self-directed learning in preparation for undergraduate study.
Cambridge Pre-U is currently available in 27 Principal Subjects, and Global Perspectives and Research – an extended project qualification. We developed Cambridge Pre-U with input from universities and higher education. All syllabuses develop in-depth subject knowledge and skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, team working, independent learning and effective communication.

Schools can enrich their curriculum by offering Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives and Research (GPR). This is taught as two successive one-year courses: Global Perspectives develops research and thinking skills during the first year, preparing students for the extended project in the second year (the Research Report). Learners can achieve the Cambridge Pre-U Diploma by taking Cambridge Pre-U GPR with three Cambridge Pre-U Principal Subjects (one or two can be substituted for A Levels).

Cambridge Pre-U is underpinned by a clear set of educational aims:
• Encouraging the development of well-informed, open and independent-minded individuals
• Promoting deep understanding through subject specialisation, with a depth and rigour appropriate to progression to higher education
• Helping learners to acquire specific skills of problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, team-working, independent learning and effective communication
• Recognising the wide range of individual talents and interests
• Promoting an international outlook and cross-cultural awareness.
