Why Cambridge?

International recognition

Globally valued qualifications

Students know their Cambridge qualifications are globally recognised, accepted by universities and employers at home and around the world. A Cambridge qualification comes with an impressive reputation, and will retain its value for a lifetime of education and employment.

University and employer recognition

Over 1,400 universities worldwide recognise Cambridge qualifications. They are accepted by every UK university, by 600 universities in the US (including all the Ivy League universities) and in many other major student destinations, such as Canada, Australia, Singapore, South Africa, Germany and the Netherlands. Universities and employers recognise our qualifications as evidence of academic achievement. They understand that the demand of our curricula and the rigour of our assessments give students what they need to flourish in higher education.

Long term relationships

We work closely with universities, employers and governments, sharing our expertise but also trying to understand their educational challenges so that we can work together to ensure a smooth progression for our students. For example, in the US our Higher Education Advisory Council, made up of university representatives, advises us on expanding recognition of Cambridge programmes in the US and contributes to the development of our qualifications. As we continue to build these relationships and increase the recognition of our qualifications, we create yet more opportunities for our students.
