What is the Cambridge Pre-U Diploma?
Students may take individual Cambridge Pre-U subjects; however, if they successfully study three Principal Subjects in combination with completing an Individual Research Report and compiling a Global Perspectives portfolio over two years they will be awarded the Cambridge Pre-U Diploma. It is also possible to import A level subjects into the Cambridge Pre-U Diploma as long as the student takes at least one Cambridge Pre-U Principal Subject.
Is it necessary to take Cambridge Pre-U exclusively to qualify for the Diploma?
No. We also expect to credit other qualifications within the full Cambridge Pre-U Diploma, where it is possible to establish a clear equivalence. A student may substitute up to two qualifications, e.g. A Levels, for two of the three Cambridge Pre-U Principal Subjects within the Diploma.
Can I take just one Cambridge Pre-U subject, without taking the whole Diploma?
Yes, absolutely. Many students are interested in taking the Global Perspectives Portfolio and the Independent Research Report as a stand alone certificate. Individual Principal Subjects (e.g. Chemistry) may also be offered.
