The University of Cambridge is one of the world’s leading universities, providing a challenging, flexible and individual learning experience. Consistently rated among the top in national and international league tables, the University is globally respected for the quality of our teaching and research, and our students are greatly sought after by employers.
The University and Colleges Cambridge is a ‘collegiate’ university. It’s made up of faculties and departments in different academic subjects and 31 Colleges (29 of these accept applications from undergraduates).
Our students become part of their College community, giving them a sense of belonging that lasts long after they graduate. As well as being a member of the University and an academic faculty/department, students also belong to a smaller College community and this system offers a huge amount of individual pastoral and academic support for each student.
