How to apply

Graduate Students

Your application to University and College

Every student at the University of Cambridge is a member of a college and choosing a college is an integral part of the general application process for admission to the University.

Graduate students must first be accepted by a Faculty or Department, and the admission process is handled by the Graduate Admissions Office, with the exception of the MBA which is handled directly by the Judge Business School.

As part of your application you will be asked to nominate either a first and second choice of college or make an open application (i.e. not specifying a college choice). If you are offered a place by a Faculty or Department, your application will be forwarded to the colleges you have nominated in order of preference. If neither offers you a place your application will be passed to further colleges until an offer is made.

All offers of a college place are conditional until the Graduate Admissions Office is satisfied you have met the academic and financial conditions for entry as a graduate student.  Bursaries and awards are also available.

If you would like to be considered for a place at Clare Hall, you should make it your first choice.
