About Cambridge

Cambridge is a wonderful University City with 120,000 inhabitants, 18,000 students and over 4 million visitors every year. The blend of the old, stretching back 2,000 years to the Romans, followed by the founding of the first College in 1284, up to the present day ultra-modern architectural buildings, housing the Law Faculty and the new Cavendish Laboratory, are the backdrop to this inspirational place of learning.

We should also not forget Cambridge’s illustrious research reputation from Sir Isaac Newton’s Laws of gravitation and light, Rutherford and Cockcroft’s splitting the atom, up to two of Churchill College’s Nobel Prize winners, Francis Crick who discovered the secrets of DNA and Tony Hewish who first discovered Pulsars.

Cambridge has a rich literary history too. So we take full advantage of this within our Academic English and English Literature programmes, including a visit to the famous tea garden at The Orchard in Grantchester, beloved by the famous poet Rupert Brooke.

The magnificent Law Faculty building designed by Norman Foster and the historical Cambridge University teaching hospital, Addenbrookes, are focal points on our Law Induction and Medicine Programmes.

Cambridge Programmes is, indeed, based in Churchill College and Fitzwililam College, two of the thirty-one Colleges which make up the University. We invite you to visit the Cambridge City website for further information.
