Cambridge is indisputably one of the world’s best and most prestigious universities. With the UK’s highest endowment, Cambridge is a research powerhouse, and is closely associated with the high-tech business cluster known as the ‘Silicon Fen’. It has a very similar collegiate system and teaching style to Oxford, and is the only other university in the UK to regularly offer all of its students one-on-one tutorials. Graduates from Cambridge are highly sought after by employers in a wide range of fields and enjoy significantly higher starting salaries than graduates from other UK universities.
The city itself is also a major attraction. Considered to be one of the most picturesque cities in the country, Cambridge nonetheless offers a range of cultural attractions and plenty of places to socialise. It’s also about an hour from London, meaning all of the capital’s landmarks, museums, theatres and music venues are within reach.
