International education from Cambridge


What lies at the heart of our approach

We prepare school students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning.

Schools can shape a Cambridge curriculum around how they want students to learn, with a wide choice of subjects and flexible ways to offer them. Cambridge programmes inspire students to love learning, helping them discover new abilities and a wider world. And we help students develop the skills they need for life, and achieve at school, university and work.

Our work is informed by research and underpinned by over 150 years of practical experience working with schools and governments worldwide. We are the only exam board that is wholly owned by a world-leading university, the University of Cambridge.

Our global community of nearly a million students in over 10 000 Cambridge schools in 160 countries benefits from qualifications internationally recognised by universities and employers worldwide.

We are a not-for-profit organisation, so we devote our resources to unlocking learners’ potential, and contributing to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest level.

An aligned system of education

We believe education works best when curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment are closely aligned. That belief inspires the design of each aspect of Cambridge programmes.

Alignment stems from knowing what we want students to learn, understanding how we will know that learning has happened, and encouraging teaching and learning approaches that support it.
