The University of Cambridge.

The University of Cambridge’s mission is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence.

One of the world’s oldest universities and leading academic centres, its reputation for outstanding academic achievement is known world-wide. In 2019, the Times Higher Education ranked the University of Cambridge #2 in its World University rankings and #2 in Life Sciences.

Working in Cambridge.

Cambridge has long had a reputation as one of Britain’s most loved cities, but now it’s emerged as a prime spot for high-tech companies.

Recent years have seen the increasing development of Cambridge as a world-renowned life science cluster, with around 430 companies ranging from tiny start-ups spawned from the University to global leaders in the pharmaceutical industry.

Cambridge also has one of the strongest business networks of any technology cluster. Currently, over 200 life science companies in this Knowledge Intensive sector call Cambridge home.

Approximately one third of the life science companies are pursuing biologics and anti-body research, one third concentrate on small molecules, and one third focus on regenerative medicine, biomarker and genomics.

Living in Cambridge.

Cambridge is a wonderful place to live and over 60,000+ employees in life science call it home.

There are plenty of open green spaces, with excellent sporting and leisure facilities and, of course cycling is a major form of transport. With a friendly and diverse population, this is indeed a city for raising a family, and with events like the Cambridge Science Festival, it’s hard not to fall in love with the City’s passion for science.

The Cambridge Phenomenon.

When science and culture combine, collaboration flourishes and enquiring minds are stimulated by an environment of academic excellence and outstanding entrepreneurship.

World-class organisations, large and small, come to Cambridge to access talent, technology and the University as a unique opportunity to discover together.

  • University of Cambridge
  • Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute

Connecting Cambridge to the world.

While the digital age has made the world incredibly small, when people do need to meet face-to-face, Cambridge has excellent connectivity, proving of paramount importance.

London is on its doorstep. Only 50 minutes to King’s Cross by train giving easy access to world renowned organisations such as The Francis Crick Institute, The University College London, Imperial College and King’s College London.

Paris is only a two-hour journey on Eurostar, accessed at St Pancras International Station adjacent to King’s Cross Station. London Stansted Airport, an international airport serving Europe, Middle East and Africa, is a 30-minute journey by train. London Stansted is the 4th largest airport in the UK serving approximately 29 million passengers a year with plans to offer transatlantic flights to Boston or New York.
