He attended Trinity College, Cambridge when he was 12 years old in 1573 and completed his course of study in 1575 when he was 14 years old. Bacon enrolled in a law program at Honourable Society of Gray's Inn where his brother Anthony studied at. Bacon believed in humanism from the start of the Renaissance by criticising the law program’s curriculum as very old fashioned and towards Aristotle. He left school to work for Sir Amyas Paulet, a British ambassador working in Paris, France on a mission. Two and a half years later he was forced out of the mission because of the death of his father Nicolas. He was able to return to Gray’s Inn and complete his education. (“Francis Bacon Biography”)
