CAWSEL will take place at St. Catharine’s College, University of Cambridge. The College, which was founded in 1473, is on Trumpington Street, in the centre of the city – within short walking distance of most university departments and numerous historic buildings and collections. St. Catharine’s is committed to academic excellence and success, while maintaining a relaxed and sociable atmosphere.

Cambridge is a city for all season! While in Cambridge you have the opportunity to explore quaint passages around the historic market place and colleges, be inspired by the many museums and art galleries and admire the majestic college buildings. Take time to relax in the many beautiful pubs, restaurants and cafes and maybe see live music or comedy at the Corn Exchange.

“For over two decades the courses have been educating people from around the world. Although in our digital age, courses increasingly are taught online and the students kept ever more remote from the teachers and other students, CAWSEL bucks the trend and continues to bring everyone together – enthusiastic students and teachers – in one real and beautiful place, Cambridge. Join us for thought-provoking lectures and interesting and entertaining discussions. Oh, and make great new friends too!”
