University of Cambridge


The University of Cambridge is a college-based university that is the second-best university in the United Kingdom, having a global reputation for outstanding academic achievement and world-class original research.

Being found in 1209, Cambridge is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world. There are over a hundred departments divided over six schools, each of which constitutes an administrative grouping of faculties and other institutions. These include Humanities and Social Sciences, Clinical Medicine, Arts and Humanities, Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Technology.

Thirty different undergraduate programs are offered at Cambridge, covering over sixty-five other academic areas. These programs range from chemical engineering to English, Mathematics, Medicine, and Classics. The undergraduate programs cover the subject area in a manner that is unusual for a university in the UK. However, students are given a wide variety of alternatives to choose from to specialize in their studies.

Students from all colleges attend the lectures, seminars, and practicals that the faculties organize. On the other hand, the colleges arrange supervision, offering students individualized tuition.

Every school year is divided into three terms, each eight weeks long. The pace and amount of work are noticeable, and there is a lot of focus on independent and self-directed study.


Cambridge currently has a diverse population of students from all over the world. Around 23,380 students study at Cambridge University, including 10,910 undergraduates and 12,480 postgraduates. About 25% of undergraduate and 50% of graduate students are from outside the UK.

Approximately 20% of the student population comprises individuals who are not citizens of a European Union member state. The tuition fees for non-EU students are much higher and might vary significantly depending on the area of study.

Students have an opportunity to avail of financial assistance through student loans, and the University of Cambridge offers scholarships that may award up to £3,500 every academic year.


Most students at Cambridge are guaranteed access to college-owned housing for the whole duration of their degree program, which students may find either on college premises or in residences in and around the city. This differs from most British universities, where students must find their housing after the first year.

Accommodation costs for students to live on campus vary a lot for every college. In the same way, each college at the University of Cambridge spends on student education is also very different. All college accommodation is within the university precincts.
