Oxford and Cambridge are the two oldest and most prestigious universities in Britain. They are often called collectively Oxbridge to denote an elitarian education. Many Oxbridge students come from public schools, and Oxbridge graduates often go on to become influential and powerful in British society.
The tutorial system is one of the ways in which Oxford and Cambridge differ from all the other English universities. Every student has a tutor and as soon as you come to Oxford one of the first things you do is to go and see your tutor. He, more or less, plans your work, suggests the books you should read and sets work for you to do. Each week you go to him in his rooms, perhaps with two or three other students, and he discusses with you the work that you have done, criticizes in detail your essay and sets you the next week’s work.
Oxford and Cambridge universities consist of a number of colleges. Each college has its own character and individuality. The universities have over a hundred societies and clubs: dramatic societies, language clubs, philosophy societies, debating clubs, political clubs of all colours – in fact, clubs for almost every activity under the sun.
Both universities are independent.
