All Cambridge Academy of Transport courses in Cambridge are held on a residential basis and are typically of either one or two weeks duration. Included as part of the Cambridge-based programmes are a number of visits to Cambridge sites, many of which are associated with the University of Cambridge such as King's College. The University has spawned over 70 Nobel Laureates and after 800 years remains one of the World's top educational centres.
Since 1978 Cambridge has been the setting for many of the residential courses which we offer. Over the years, one of the highlights of a stay in Cambridge has been the tour of the world-famous colleges of the University of Cambridge, conducted by Len Lewis, a renowned expert on the city. Len sadly died in 2014 but his successors are continuing in the tradition of providing insight to the City and the University of Cambridge, offering a unique perspective on over 800 years of educational excellence.
Cambridge is one of the most historic cities in Europe with a tradition of scholarship spanning the centuries. Its magnificent colleges draw millions of visitors to the city each year.
Apart from the University’s scholastic achievements (over 70 Nobel Laureates have studied or worked here), Cambridge also boasts fine museums and private collections which form part of the cultural heritage of Great Britain. The Fitzwilliam Museum's collection of Egyptian artefacts, Chinese ceramics and European art; the Sedgwick Museum's reconstruction of the Jurassic Sea and the Cambridge Folk Museum's display of curiosities are but three of the many noteworthy exhibitions that create a lasting impression on visitors.
