Cambridge was founded by renegades from Oxford University, the oldest English speaking university. The University of Cambridge's reputation for excellence and prestige is underscored by producing 83 Nobel Laureates and a top five ranking among world-wide universities. The University of Cambridge is made up of 31 independent self-directed colleges. The notable Trinity College of Mathematics is consistently exceptional in teaching and with the work it produces. Teaching and research at Cambridge is organized into Faculties with sub-structures of specific studies. There are six schools, notably the School of Medicine, Biological Sciences, Physical Science and Technology. Cambridge has a slight predilection for scientific research. Across the University of Cambridge, its Schools and Departments and Faculties rely on a multi-billion dollar endowment with additional funding from foundations and grants.
