Informal, international and interdisciplinary
Darwin is a welcoming community of postgraduate students and academics. Our beautiful riverside location provides a home in central Cambridge for students from over 80 different countries, studying for the full range of postgraduate degrees.
Founded in 1964, we were the first exclusively postgraduate College in Cambridge, and the first to admit both women and men. For nearly 60 years Darwin has offered an egalitarian, inclusive space within which research can flourish. Our members and alumni are at the forefront of innovative responses to global challenges, from the climate crisis to emerging viruses.
If you are a prospective student, you’ll find the answers to your questions here: Studying at Darwin.
New or existing members can find details of day-to-day life in College in our Information for Members section.
