I’ve had a great time so far in my 2 years. Very high quality teaching and a really friendly environment in my college with plenty of support available if you need it.

I go to Emmanuel college and the halls are amazing, good prices for the facilities you get with it (Inc free laundry service once a week). Modern and Medieval languages is a great and diverse course and allows you to study what actually interests you. Emmanuel's professors are understanding and look to help you along the way as much as possible. The porters and staff are friendly ( as is everyone in the college).

The second oldest university of England has one of the best campuses. The buildings are spread out, and there are no 'boundary' of the university. The distinctive supervision system gives you the opportunity to meet and discuss with academics regularly. The quality of lectures are mostly superb, but there can be subjects which you can find slightly boring.

A beautiful, old city, the university being established in 1209 gives the whole place a truly historic feeling. Tonnes of facilities from sport centres to concert halls to soon to be ice rinks. My course (mathematics) is notoriously difficult, however it's rewarding. Careers service allow you to feel like no profession is too obscure.

Super supportive, and genuinely want you to succeed. Cambridge have backed me through many hard times, and have always made me feel welcome at the university, even when I myself didn’t feel I belonged. Facilities are modern and well equipped, and teaching is of a superb quality.

Whilst the univeristy counselling service ended up not being the best thing for me, the univeristy themselves provided plenty of support and understanding around the time of the illness and death of an immediate family member.

Amazing university. Has a huge amount of history which is felt just walking around the buildings and the place. Really good teaching from experts around the world and small one on one or two on one teaching meaning that you really get your value for money.

I think I've received an incredible education for the money I've paid. It is really hard work (i.e. 7 days a week for 8 weeks straight), but the mentorship I have received on a one-to-one basis has been amazing. While the pastoral support system is seriously flawed, I'm graduating as a confident and competent student with a great circle of friends.

Inclusivity is pretty bad. There is limited racial/ethnic diversity, and integration of students from minority backgrounds is not assisted by the university that much. Wealth inequality here is stark, and access from comprehensive backgrounds is terrible.

The College nurse is very supportive and access to the local GP is great. However, while support for physical ailments is strong, mental illnesses receive very limited support. The University mistakenly assigns academic staff with no training to deal with mental health problems, meaning students are subjected to stigmatisation and scorn instead of support and access to health care facilities if their tutor happens to be old-fashioned and untrained in mental health issues. Many friends have acquired mental health illnesses while at the university, and the stress of the constant work is no help.
Support for international students
(I'm not an international student so I can't comment)

I am not disabled so not really qualified to answer! However, as many of the old buildings on campus date back to the 14th century, access for disabled students will undoubtedly be flawed.

Beautiful campus, traditional buildings, the entire city is worth exploring. Courses are mainly flexible, teaching great, albeit could do with more contact hours

Mixed experience. Masters level degree very didactic and not centred on principles of interactive adult learning. Long days. Enjoyed warm college atmosphere. Hard to link to range of student groups if missed freshers fayre. Excellent counselling services

Good breadth and availability, bit stuck in their ways on some fronts. But in general a hell of a lot better than is made out by the papers.

The people are surprisingly normal, haven’t come across much of the negative stereotypes that I’d heard of. The work is intense but rewarding when you look back at all you’ve learned and done. Met a lot of like-minded people and made great friends. So many opportunities and services scattered around the city that it can be hard to keep on top of it all but I’d you can make he most of them then you’ll go far.

Very intense and some resources are lacking but good level of contact hours and academic support. Welfare and access could be much better. Careers service is very good. I didn't pay to be part of the union but they have lots of events and talks.
