I am really enjoying my masters at Cambridge in research, the quality cannot be questioned. However, even though joining in lent term (January) is an option there doesn’t seem to be anywhere near the same level as support as for those who start in October. Also, I have not been allowed to join the tennis club at all because of COVID and not wanting to degrade current members value for money with limitations on people, which is silly because in the coming months all the undergraduates will go home for summer but they still won’t let me join, not very nice
Very strong academically, a little off with societies and social opportunities this year because of covid. Honestly, not much the university could have done though. One thing that stood out to me when I came to Cambridge is how small the town really is.
An amazing University in an amazing city! Probably the best University experience one can get in the UK, with exceptional education, a very diverse and culturally rich student community, lots of societies and activities to get involved with as well as many networking and career-related opportunities!
I just want to say thank you for all free resources you have. Your university made much more for me than any university here in Ukraine. I am not even allowed to study, even for money, because i can't pass national language exam. I speak English better than Ukranian. So again thank you so much. You're the best.
Its a sick uni like, the buildings are amazing and the city is an incredible placet to live. But also like bare posh people. Literally someone in my year turned up to uni for freshers in their helicopter. Flip side of this, u get to pretend ur rich when u visit your mate's houses over the holidays and they sometimes invite u on holiday with their family so u get to like go skiing and that which is sick
Having started recently at Cambridge, I’ve felt fully accepted the entire time - everyone is so lovely and supportive. There is an electric atmosphere of intellectualism that is incredible to be a part of, and the supervisors abd lectures are all so incredible and individual. A really amazing and beautiful place.
Cambridge is a great uni. The Collegiate atmosphere is great but occasionally it is limiting so I can see why it’s not for everyone. The academic element is fantastic and welfare and support are generally very good.
An all round excellent university. Fantastic welfare, teaching, facilities etc. My biggest problem would be the need for more reliable WiFi, but this is a very small issue in comparison to all the things Cambridge is getting right.
Good facilities (every college has a library, canteen and most have a small gym), housing isn't cheap but on par with other expensive university cities like Edinburgh or London, plus it's all owned by the colleges so I was living on the same street as most of my friends for 3 years, with utility bills, wifi and even a weekly cleaner included in my rent. Everyone was so much friendlier and down to earth than I expected - in comparison to other unis there are so many societies/sports clubs although because of the workload you have to be quite selective with what you do. Nights out in such a small city are great because everyone goes to the same places plus Cambridge is quite safe overall so getting home at night was always really easy. Work-wise, be prepared to feel quite stupid and it can get very stressful but I found that the negatives were usually balanced out by the sense of community in college/being so close to all your friends.
As PhD graduate from Cambridge University, I can say that this is the most racist place on earth. All they want is international student's money! Students mental and physical and social well-being is of least concern to the university. Most colleges are poor, spending all money to feed their 100s of staffs and fellows. They have hardly any budget for students to support travel and research. Food and accommodation is extremely expensive. Colleges are all about undergraduates, most of whom are British. The Masters and tutors have little time to deal with poor international students, who can't even speak English properly. Overall, Cambridge is the most expensive city in UK. Professors are careless; they wouldn't bother if their students die while doing research. It is very hard to reach the professors. I know some professors who constantly bully their students, those coming from international background, as they are helpless. I curse my decision to come to Cambridge instead of going to US
Excellent university providing us with countless opportunities, both academic and extracurricular, whilst pastoral care and social needs are simultaneously catered for through the unique college-based education offered only at Oxford and Cambridge. Meanwhile, however, Cambridge trumps Oxford through its 'feeling' - Oxford can feel like a large - and for some, intimidatingly grand, city. Cambridge is a beautiful and diverse city, yet manages to always maintain the quaintness of a rural market town.
The university doesn't really have a campus as such, but is instead spread all around the city. This makes it a really beautiful city, but unfortunately means that tourists are constantly getting in your way to lectures. The facilities offered by the university aren't particularly good - the sports centre is miles out of town (and quite expensive), and other facilities generally depend upon your college. There are loads of clubs and societies to get involved in, at both a college and university level, and plenty of support if you want to set up your own society. The Students Union is basically non-existent, consisting of a dingy office in a basement somewhere. The career opportunities for Cambridge graduates are generally very good - employers recognise that a degree from Cambridge is really hard. However, students are banned from getting part time jobs during term time which can reduce your work experience. WiFi is only present in some colleges and lecture halls.
Students union - does it exist as a building (collegiate system problems) but in college support is great. Wifi is pretty much all around town but some areas much slower than others. So many societies!! And lots of departments and tons of libraries.
