THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE
The University of Cambridge (often Cambridge University), is located in Cambridge, England. It is the second oldest university in the English-speaking world and has a reputation as one of the world's most prestigious universities.
Cambridge is a university, with its main functions divided between the central departments of the university and thirty-one colleges of which three admit only women. The first women students were examined in 1882 but attempts to make women full members of the university did not succeed until 1947.
In general, the departments perform research and provide centralized lectures to students, while the colleges are responsible for the domestic arrangements and welfare of undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral researches and some University staff.
Colleges are not required to admit students in all subjects, with some colleges choosing from subjects such as architecture, history of art, sciences and engineering. From the time of Isaac Newton in the later 17th century until the mid-19th century, the university maintained a strong emphasis on mathematics.
Cambridge University has research departments and teaching faculties in most academic disciplines. Cambridge tends to have a slight bias towards scientific subjects, but it also has a number of strong humanities and social science faculties.
All research and lectures are conducted by University Departments. During the 1990s Cambridge added a substantial number of new specialist research laboratories on several University sites around the city.
Historically, the university has produced a significant proportion of Britain's prominent scientists, writers and politicians. Officially, affiliates of Cambridge University have won a total of 82 Nobel Prizes, more than any other university in the world and more than any country in the world except the United Kingdom and the United States.
In addition to a long distinguished tradition in the humanities and the arts, the University of Cambridge is especially known for producing prominent scientists and mathematicians. This distinguished list includes Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, William Harvey, Paul Dirac, J. J. Thomson, Ernest
Rutherford, Jane Goodall, James Clerk Maxwell, Francis Crick, Alan Turing, Stephen Hawking, and Fred Sanger.
Cambridge maintains a long tradition of student participation in sport and recreation. Rowing is a particularly popular sport at Cambridge, and there are competitions between colleges and against Oxford (the Boat Race). There are also matches against Oxford in many other sports, ranging from rugby and cricket, to chess and tiddlywinks.
