Christ’s College

Christ's College was first established as God's House in 1437 by William Byngham, a London parish priest, for training grammar school masters.  With the patronage of Lady Margaret Beaufort it was refounded as Christ's College in 1505, with a royal charter from King Henry VII.

Its illustrious roll call of alumni includes John Milton, Charles Darwin, Rowan Williams and Simon Schama.

The College works with the Cambridge Trust and the Sir Ernest Cassel Educational Trust to offer the Mountbatten Cambridge International Scholarship, which is available to PhD applicants from Commonwealth countries.
