Applications are made to individual colleges. Colleges offer all courses but applicants for the smaller subjects are advised to establish which colleges concentrate upon that discipline (and hence admit in greater numbers).
Attendance at college and departmental Open Days will assist selection and is strongly recommended. Details are available in the Prospectus and from the Admissions Secretary in each college.
Applications have to be submitted to the college of choice by 15th October in the year preceding desired admission. Interviews are held in December. For UK candidates, the level of achievement which is normally expected is in the region of AAA or, as a minimum AAB in three A level subjects. Higher criteria apply for certain courses and Colleges.
Students who are over 21 by 1st October in the year in which they wish to come to Cambridge and who have not previously completed a course of higher education will be treated as mature students. Admissions criteria can be more flexible for mature students.
The greatest number of mature students are admitted by Hughes Hall, St. Edmund's College and Wolfson College. Mature applicants use a special Mature Application Form, available from individual colleges.
