Spending a year at Cambridge has been absolutely wonderful. One of the highlights for me has been the supervision system – although the constant essay writing can be grueling, it is also incredibly rewarding. What I have enjoyed most about Lucy Cavendish is the friendly atmosphere and the beautiful grounds. It is hard to imagine a nicer place to study!
