The City of Cambridge
Our city is known throughout the world for its mediaeval university colleges, impressive architecture, the peaceful River Cam, and its green parks and gardens. With its historic buildings and beautiful setting, the city of Cambridge is the ideal place to study.
Cambridge has a long tradition, but the university is a centre of exciting and innovative scientific research, with key companies such as Microsoft, Apple, and ARM based here. With a population of around 100,000 residents and 20,000 university students, Cambridge is an exciting place in which to live and study. It is small enough to get around easily on foot or by bicycle, but big enough to have all the shops, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, clubs, museums, galleries and sporting facilities that you need.
Of course, if you want to visit a really big city, London is just 50 minutes away by train.
Our main school is just 25 minutes’ walk from Cambridge’s historic centre, and our summer school is 20 minutes’ walk away.
