University Profile

The University of Cambridge is one of the oldest universities in the world and one of the largest in the United Kingdom. The University of Cambridge consists of over 100 departments, faculties and schools plus a central administration, most of which have their own web sites. The University has also a number of centres that do not run degree courses but have research materials and resources for staff and students working, or with an interest in particular areas.

The University offers a large number of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in various subjects, which can be categorized into groups as Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Physical Sciences, Technology, Management, Biological, Medical, and Veterinary Sciences. Other courses include part-time research degree programmes, MBA courses, Master of Studies courses, courses in Education, programmes on executive education, professional development, and enterpreneurship.

There are 31 Colleges in the University of Cambridge. Three are for women (New Hall, Newnham and Lucy Cavendish), and two admit only graduates (Clare Hall and Darwin). The remainder house and teach all students enrolled in courses of study or research at the University. Each College is an independent institution with its own property and income. The Colleges appoint their own staff and are responsible for selecting students, in accordance with University regulations. The teaching of students is shared between the Colleges and University departments. However, the degrees are awarded by the University.
