The University of Cambridge
The University of Cambridge is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and is regarded as one of the world's top five universities. Made up of 31 colleges, the University is a member of the Russell Group, a network of research-led British universities; the Coimbra Group, an association of leading European universities; the League of European Research Universities; and the International Alliance of Research Universities. It is also considered part of the "Golden Triangle", a geographical concentration of leading research universities.
Cambridge has produced 89 Nobel winners to date, more than any other university, while Trinity College alone has produced more Nobel prize winners than France. The University of Cambridge is also the third biggest landowner in the country, after the King and the Church of England.
Cambridge University courses are considered amongst the very best in the world, and the University is one of the ten most targeted universities in the UK by Britain's leading employers (Graduate Outcomes).
