The University of Cambridge is one of the most well-known universities globally and is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world. The University ranks in the top 5 universities globally and is a member of the Russel Group, a group of 24 universities that produce more than two-thirds of the world-leading research produced in the UK. It is also considered part of the "Golden Triangle", a geographical concentration of leading research universities. The University of Cambridge is not a single campus and is instead comprised of 31 self-governing colleges coming under one Cambridge banner. Rather remarkably, The University of Cambridge is also the third biggest landowner in the UK, after the Queen and the Church of England.


Services for International Students

Support is available for all students in the form of student societies and volunteer alumni groups, who run fresher parties throughout September to introduce students to each other and university life. An orientation programme is organised at the start of each term to helps students settle into university life.



Accommodation at The University of Cambridge is served by each college individually and varies depending on the college. On-campus and private accommodation is available to students.
