Pre-U Tuition Services

The Cambridge Pre-U is a post-16 qualification that prepares students with the skills and knowledge they need for university. The Pre-U programme promotes independent and self-directed learning in preparation for undergraduate study.

As a student’s time at secondary school draws to a close, exams take on new significance as students approach the next stage of their academic careers.
