King's College © Cambridge University

Cambridge is one of the best universities in the world that has often also been ranked number 1 in the UK and the world by the Guardian, The Times and Complete University Guides

The University offers a wide range of undergraduate degree courses in the arts, social sciences, sciences, engineering and medical sciences, which are listed here. The courses are both flexible and exploratory, meaning that most start with a broad cover of the subject area spanning different disciplines before allowing you to choose from a range of specialisms. Applications are considered on an individual basis and Admissions Tutors at Cambridge are looking for students they believe have the most academic potential, are best suited to the course they applied for and will most benefit from the learning offered, whatever their background.

Cambridge is a 'collegiate' university made up of a number of Colleges, which admit students, organise small-group teaching as well as providing accommodation and pastoral care. An explanation of the role of Colleges and a full list is available here. The various faculties and departments in different academic subjects determine course content, organise lectures and sets examinations.
