Teaching & learning
Universities tell us that Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives and Research (GPR) is an excellent preparation for undergraduate study as it gives real evidence of independent, critical thinking. Cambridge Pre-U GPR is taught as two successive one-year courses, with the Research Report growing seamlessly out of the skills introduced and developed as part of the Global Perspectives course.
Cambridge Pre-U GPR is an excellent alternative to Critical Thinking, General Studies and the Extended Project, and is very attractive for schools looking for curriculum enrichment programmes. It enthuses learners by offering the opportunity for open debate and research on their own topic.
We are withdrawing Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives & Research (9777). The last November exam series will be November 2020. From 2020, we will only offer this syllabus in the June exam series.
We do offer a June and November series for Cambridge International AS and A Level Global Perspectives & Research (9239), so you may be interested in this syllabus as a possible alternative. This syllabus is not regulated by Ofqual and is therefore not funded for teaching in state schools in England. We communicated this decision to schools in April 2018.
Our online learning area supports teachers delivering, and learners taking, Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives and Research. To create a teacher account for the learning area complete our online form.
If you already have a teacher account you can access the learning area here.

The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
