Built Upon Success
Cambridge is built upon success; with the modern Science Park, the Innovation Centre and even the headquarters of Microsoft Research UK all calling Cambridge their home. This combined with the recent announcement of the pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca moving to its £330m headquarters in the Biomedical Campus in 2016, highlights the increasing array of quality employment opportunities that Cambridge has to offer.
The Biomedical Campus is located just one and a half miles from Grand Central and is home to Cancer Research UK and MRC. In addition, the world-class Addenbrookes and Rosie Hospitals are located here and in 2018 the campus will be the new location for the world-renowned Papworth Hospital. Set to become Europe's new hub of biomedical excellence, the development of the Biomedical Campus will generate over 10,000 new career opportunities in Cambridge.
Cambridge and surrounding areas house over 1,500 technology based companies which employ 57,000 people and is the fastest growing sector in Cambridge, with giants such as Amazon, Spotify and Apple also expanding in the City.

Exceptional Academic Achievement
Cambridge is home to nine independent schools, seven public libraries and several excellent state schools including the Hills Road Sixth Form College, which is within half a mile from Grand Central, helping to provide first class education facilities for all ages. It is also home to Anglia Ruskin University as well as one of the world's oldest and most prestigious universities, The University of Cambridge.
With a history stretching back 800 years, an exceptional academic reputation, a wealth of lore and tradition and some truly glorious architecture, The University of Cambridge has plenty of justification for its boast of being one of the best universities in the world. Alumni such as Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, William Wordsworth, Stephen Hawking and HRH The Prince of Wales have all passed through one of the greatest centres for knowledge and learning. Famous for producing more Nobel Prize winners than any other city on earth and a reputation for outstanding academic achievement, the University also produces world-class original research carried out by the staff and Colleges.
Extensive resources are offered to students at The University of Cambridge and include access to 114 libraries, eight specialist museums and collections and the heritage-listed, 40-acre University Botanic Garden.
Bursting with character and steeped in history, you can almost hear the echoes of centuries past whilst you walk through this enchanting city. Threaded throughout the streets are Michelin-star restaurants, museums, galleries and independent retailers all vying for attention. So too are award-winning theatres, cinemas, bookshops and the wonderful open air daily market offering fresh local produce.
The City of Cambridge is set in the quiet of the picturesque English countryside. The beautiful Fens to the north of the City are home to an abundance of wildlife, whilst scenery of small villages nestling in gently undulating hills is to the south. Breathe in a land of lazy waterways, rolling countryside, majestic cathedrals, magnificent stately homes, bustling market towns and quaint villages at your leisure.
Cambridge is home to some of the finest examples of Saxon, Norman, Gothic, Tudor and classical architecture in the country. Rife with historic charm, Cambridge's grand architecture belies a remarkable past dating back as far as the Bronze age and Roman times.
