Who we are
Cambridge University Press & Assessment is a world leader in assessment, education, research and academic publishing. We are part of the University of Cambridge and share its mission ‘to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence’. This connection gives us an unrivalled depth of experience in research, academic publishing, national education systems, international education and English language learning.
We explore, collaborate and innovate to find bold new ways to spread knowledge, spark enquiry and aid understanding. We help people across the world to realise their potential, benefiting society and the planet. Through our products and services, we inform action around some of the world’s most pressing challenges, including climate change, and we are committed to reducing our environmental impact.
Our financial success is reinvested in progressing the Cambridge mission, enabling us to expand on the good we do.
We publish academic-level research, reference and higher education textbooks across a wide range of disciplines under the Cambridge University Press imprint. There were 114 million downloads of scholarly materials last year from our academic online platform Cambridge Core. Our higher education website hosts our learning materials and we are also the world’s oldest Bible publisher.
We help people learn English and prove their skills to the world. Our qualifications and tests for learners and teachers of English are recognised worldwide as a mark of excellence. How we use and learn English is one of our strongest areas of research, including a multi-billion word database, and informs our English language courses and assessment.
We are the world’s largest provider of international education programmes and qualifications for 3 to 19 year-olds. We are also a world-leading provider of materials, resources and services to teachers and learners in print and online. Through the Cambridge Partnership for Education we offer education reform across curriculum, assessment, learning and teacher materials.
Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations (OCR) is a leading UK awarding body, providing a wide range of general and vocational qualifications to help students achieve their full potential. Baseline and formative assessments from the Cambridge Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) empower teachers to understand students’ strengths and areas for improvement.
