The University of Cambridge is one of the world's oldest and most renowned universities. Its reputation for outstanding academic achievement reflects the intellectual achievement of its students as well as the top-notch research carried out by its extraordinary faculty and staff.
The University consists of 31 Colleges. Each College is an independent institution and each appoints its own staff, in accordance with University guidelines. Degrees, however, are awarded by the University. A College is a place where students live, eat and socialize and is also where the small group teaching sessions or "supervisions" take place. The supervision system is one of the most unique hallmarks of a Cambridge education.
Girton College is one of the largest constituent colleges at Cambridge. Located on 50 acres of land just outside the Cambridge city center, it's the perfect place to meet international students from around the world. Learning resources that support practically every subject are available, as well as some of the best on-site sporting facilities in Cambridge. The College enjoys stunning buildings and grounds and has collected prizes and awards not just for scholarly achievement, but for innovation and adventure as well.
