The hype really is justified - a quantum leap forward from my experience as an undergrad at Durham. Don’t assume Russell Group are all pretty much the same. Not least, the reaction from potential employers it’s very different. Sure, you’ll be resented and accused of supporting elitism. But that’s inevitable and a small price to endure. And there is significant pressure to perform, but mostly from seeing how your peers perform. Staff are mostly highly supportive, with the odd exception (sometimes very odd!) who’s brilliant but socially dysfunctional. You learn to deal with it. Net result is an environment that has enabled me to achieve significantly more than I thought myself capable of. And in a privileged and cosseting environment. If you’re offered the opportunity, don’t hesitate.

Cambridge is a great university. You have to be willing to work very hard when you get here - and this is a real step up from sixth form - but if you love your course then this is no chore.

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

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

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.
