Universities in Britain
The oldest institution for higher education in the country is the University of Oxford where teaching started as far back as 1096 - but the exact date may have been even earlier. The second oldest university in the UK is the University of Cambridge, which was founded by a breakaway group of Oxford scholars in 1209. These two Universities are rarely out of the top three in the league tables, and are amongst the best institutions in the world. Both Oxford and Cambridge are classified as "Ancient Universities" in Britain and Ireland because they are amongst the oldest institutions in the country - and the world.
