Oxford University was created in the first years of the thirteenth century when students
expelled from the Sorbonne in Paris came to Oxford city monasteries to study. Like
Cambridge, Oxford University is a group of
independent colleges. There are now 34. The church used to dominate Oxford, and
until the nineteenth century all dons (university teachers) had to remain unmarried.
Merton College and New College. For centuries the title of Oxfords oldest college has
been claimed by Merton. It received its first students in 1270. The college remained by
far the largest and grandest in Oxford until New College was founded in 1379. To
ensure that the students had a thorough early education New College was linked to a
grammar school, now Winchester College, from which it took all its students. To this
day New College is internationally known for its choir.
Christ Church is Oxfords grandest college. Its chapel is Oxford Cathedral. The choir
is world famous. King Henry V III created Christ Church, uniting the college with the
cathedral in a single foundation (1546). The gateway in the form of a domed tower
was built by Sir Christopher Wren. Lewis Carroll (CharlesDodgson) taught
mathematics at Christ Church. The story which he told Dean Liddels daughter Alice
and her two sisters became Alice in Wonderland. 18 Prime Ministers were graduates from
Christ Church.
Cambridge University consists of a group of 32 independent colleges. The first
students came to the city in 1209 and studied in the schools of the cathedral and
monasteries. The first college, Peterhouse, opened in 1281. At that time colleges
were places for the students to live and they went to study at a single school in the
city. Over the years, the colleges became independent and provided their own places
to study. Today Cambridge is famous for the quality of its scientific research.
Kings College was founded by Henry VII in 1441. Scholars from the school he
founded at Eton a year before had their university education in his college at
Cambridge. Currently, members of the college come from every kind of school and
widely varying backgrounds.
Kings College Chapel is simply the grandest and most beautiful building in
Cambridge. Stone, wood and glass combine with music to provide an unforgettable
experience under Rubens Adoration of the Magi.
Emmanuel. The many men who emigrated to the New World included 35
educated at Emmanuel more than from any other Cambridge college. Among them
was John Harvard. He emigrated in 1637 and at his death (1638) left half his estate
and his library to a college to be established at New Town (later named Cambridge
in memory of the University that had educated so many of the early immigrants)
future Harvard University. A memorial plaque to John Harvard, presented by
members of Harvard University, can be seen in Emmanuel chapel.
Trinity College, a combination of intellectual distinction, architectural
splendour and immense wealth, gives Trinity preeminence amongst the colleges
of Cambridge. In 1546 Henry VIII united two colleges to create a
