Institution

The University of Cambridge


With more than 18,000 students from all walks of life and all corners of the world, nearly 9,000 staff, 31 Colleges and 150 Departments, Faculties, Schools and other institutions, no two days are ever the same at the University of Cambridge.

At the heart of this confederation of Departments, Schools, Faculties and Colleges is a central administration team. It is small because the Colleges are self-governing and teaching staff carry out much of the daily administration at Cambridge.

Cambridge is structured differently from other universities, and these differences make Cambridge special. To help you get started let us explain the basics.

The Cambridge advantage: our courses
