Cambridge is a university city located in Cambridgeshire in East Anglia, England. It is around 50 miles away from London and boasts a population of around 120,000 people. Cambridge has a centre for technological advancement known as the Silicon Fen which produces products to aid the software and bioscience industries. These start-up companies are usually sprung direct from the Cambridge University as over 40% of the workforce have a qualification in higher education, more than twice the amount of the national average. Cambridge is home to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus which is at the cutting edge of biomedical research.

The most famous aspect of Cambridge is its university which was founded in 1209 and is ranked to be amongst the five top universities in the world. The university was founded by scholars who left the University of Oxford. The two universities are ancient and some of the oldest English-speaking schools in existence and are jointly referred to as ‘Oxbridge’ as they are so similar. Currently, around 18,000 students are enrolled in the university.

The University of Cambridge is formed from 31 constituent colleges with over one hundred academic departments which are organised into six schools. The buildings for the university are spread throughout the town and most form some sort of historical or architectural importance. The colleges self-govern and are all integral and important parts of the university.

The university operates around eight art, culture and scientific centres, including the botanic garden and the Fitzwilliam Museum. The libraries of the University of Cambridge have around 15 million books. The main subjects taught at this university are arts and sciences but has a strong history in the sector of applied mathematics and mathematical physics. Until the mid-19th century, a pass in an examination in mathematics was once compulsory for all students.

Notable alumni from the University of Cambridge include Charles Darwin, Stephen Hawking, Isaac Newton and fifteen British Prime Ministers.
