Destination: Cambridge

It was my first time in Cambridge and my expectations were quite high. Many people told me Cambridge is a beautiful place.

After spending there one day and a half I was completely speechless. The city is so lovely and lively. It's filled with history and you are certain to find a department or a college in every block of the city. Needless to say, these beautiful buildings are more than 500 years old. You will be facing places where many of the things you know where actually discovered. Add amazing green parks, a lovely river, a carless environment and streets packed with young faces from all over the world...and you've got Cambridge!

For those of you who are in the middle of many application processes and don't know which MBA to choose, you must visit Cambridge. You can only feel that atmosphere after being there. And I am pretty sure you won't even consider any other places after knowing what Cambridge has to offer as a Business School and as a place to live in for a year.

If you are considering to take the phone interview, available in some cases, think twice. I urge you to visit the place and go throught the experience they have prepared for candidates.

I can only say it was one of the most amazing and exciting experiences I have ever had. It's really worth it!

I'd be very grateful if you could tell me what are the full costs of the programme, that is, how much does the MBA cost, and how much money you think is necessary to live one year in Cambridge (accommodation, food, medical care, etc.).

Thank you very much in advance!

With the programme costing around 30.000 pounds, you'll probably need around 45.000 pounds to live comfortably there. This could be less if you don't travel too much, find cheap accommodation and, of course, get some kind of grant.
