Student Life

Life in Cambridge

Cambridge is a wonderful city in which you will experience both the rich history of England and the best of what contemporary life in the UK has to offer. It is a city that respects the past, lives in the present and looks to the future.

Even if you have never visited Cambridge, you will know something about it from film, literature and poetry. It inspired scientists like Darwin, Newton and Hawking, writers like AA Milne and Wordsworth and comedians like John Cleese and Eric Idle.

Today the city is inspiring thousands of Cambridge students, a new generation of artists and leads the way in new and emerging technology.
