Why Study at Cambridge University - Christ College
Christ's College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge. It was founded by William Byngham in 1437 as God's House for training grammar schoolmasters. Shortly after receiving its Royal Licence from Henry VI in 1446, it was forced to move from its original site as this was needed for the King's new project (what was to become King's College). Christ College moved to its present site in 1448 and in the same year received a second Royal Licence. The college includes the Master, the Fellows of the College, and about 450 undergraduate, and 170 graduate students.
