Emmanuel College

Emmanuel College is set in beautiful grounds in the heart of Cambridge. Once inside the gates of the College, it is hard to believe that the busy city centre is such a short distance away.

The College was founded in 1584 by Sir Walter Mildmay, who for many years was Chancellor of the Exchequer to Queen Elizabeth I. Its buildings range from medieval to late 20th century. The gardens have extensive lawns, magnificent and rare trees, and ponds that are home to large numbers of ducks and fish.

Although founded originally for the education and training of Protestant preachers, it has grown into one of the larger colleges in Cambridge, consisting of a community of more than 600 people. It accepts students at all levels of degree study, and in almost all fields of study offered by the University.

Emmanuel College makes a generous annual donation to the Cambridge Commonwealth, European & International Trust to support a range of scholarships for international students.
