University of Cambridge, Cambridge

4.6
Admire architecture, landscaping, and education at its finest at University of Cambridge, the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world. The institution's 31 colleges and six schools sit fairly close to one another, but you'll often see students going to and from by bicycle. Of particular note is the Great Court of King's College, which features a sprawling green lawn and 16th-century perpendicular Gothic English architecture, as exemplified by the King's College chapel. The oldest colleges were founded in the 13th century, with the very oldest being Peterhouse, dating from 1284. The Cam River runs through the campus and is traversed by multiple bridges; cross over the Bridge of Sighs at St. John's College and the Mathematical Bridge at Queen's College, and keep your eye out for the resident swans. You are free to wander the grounds, but be aware that some colleges charge an entrance fee and access may be limited during the school term.

  • Best university i wud say aftr Harvard University...Wish that in future many Indian students wud opt to stdy in ths uni. For the better Life and world experiences.
  • Just so everyone who goes to this school knows.....Nate osgood (who deliberately harmed a donor to the U of Sask) from the university of saskatchewan in canada are ivy league grads and they work in canada because Americans are fucking stupid. Take this advice from a grad from 2013....americans are so dumb Donald Trump never realized he is just like the queen from the birtish commonwealth. GO CANADA!!!! Also if you end up failing biology...learn german and go look up regular polytopes on google...the sat is a joke canada admits you based on an overall grade average so it is accurate. Canadian schools are so much fucking better I cannot tell you guys...there is a reason ivy league grads leave. ALso, Juxin Liu failed a donor to the school while pregnant and she doesnt even speak english! THe indian dean Raj who pretended to get fired on their recent website smelled like curry. Teachers who dont meet the basic standards should not fail students and should be fired for not meeting the standards!
