Pembroke College

Pembroke is a lively, inclusive and supportive academic community, with a commitment to excellence. Our strong interdisciplinary ethos and collaborative environment encourages undergraduates, graduates and academic staff to work together and enables Pembroke students to enhance their studies with a broader outlook on the world. We support each other as individuals and members of a close-knit community and also offer extensive welfare provision.

Students at Pembroke College

Pembroke is able to offer undergraduate students accommodation for at least three years of their degree. We have a 24-hour library, a popular on-site café and our Junior Common Room (JCR) is proud to own and manage an art collection! Our active and diverse alumni network provides careers advice and contacts for current students.

Our commitment to academic excellence is underwritten by study skills tutoring, generous book grants for humanities and social science students, fully funded summer internships for science students, and travel grants. We also offer a generous scholarship scheme for high performing students, and hardship funds to support those in need.

Pembroke is...

…truly special. It is not simply an incredible academic institution where you are given the tools and freedom to grow intellectually and delve into areas of study both exciting and new, but is also an environment which in being so caring and warm, aids and allows you to develop your passions and ‘self’ beyond the curriculum, at every turn.

… a close community that makes you feel at home right from the start of Freshers' Week and has made my past four years at Pembroke the best years of my life.

…supportive staff and students. Come with an open mind – I’m involved in projects and societies that I would never have envisaged being part of prior to Oxford.

… superbly helpful in letting you develop, be it by funding internships or helping organise extra-curricular events. Pembroke gives all that and much more.
