About the University of Cambridge and Scholarship

A public college research university located in Cambridge, England is called the University of Cambridge. The third-oldest university in continuous operation in the world was founded in Cambridge in 1209.

Following the entrance of academics from the University of Oxford who had defected to Cambridge as a result of a disagreement with the local populace, the university was established. Although they have been compared as rivals in the past, the two historic English colleges have a lot in common and are frequently referred to as Oxbridge together. The institution was acknowledged with a royal charter awarded by King Henry III in 1231, 22 years after its inception.


Over 150 academic departments, faculties, and other organizations are organized into six schools of the University of Cambridge, which consists of 31 constituent colleges that are semi-autonomous. Within the university, each college operates independently, managing its own personnel and administrative practices. Additionally, it is a requirement for all university students to be a member of one of the colleges. Undergraduate education at Cambridge is mostly comprised of weekly small-group supervisions at the colleges, with lectures, seminars, laboratory work, and occasionally extra supervision supplied by the faculties and departments of the central university.

The University of Cambridge is accepting applications for the AZ-funded Non-Clinical PhD Studentship in the research project “Investigate the Mechanistic Link between Chronic Kidney Disease and Cardiac Dysfunction” for the academic year 2023–2024. The studentship program is open to the brightest UK and international students who are beginning their Ph.D. degree studies at the institution.
