"Have a taste of the rich British culture and 

in-depth experience of  European Arts!"

Course Description 

The Arts & Humanities programme offers a great opportunity for students to know more about the western history, especially British and European arts, culture, history and languages by learning from Cambridge scholars from a diverse academic background including linguistics, history, arts, psychology, cultural studies, cognitive and behavioural studies.
