Applications for 2017/2018


If you decide to make an application you are advised to do so as early as possible. This will increase your chances not only of acceptance but also of being considered for funding. Candidates for Research Council Studentships should aim to apply before Christmas. Overseas candidates should consult the prospectus for funding deadlines.

We hope that the above information is helpful as we wish to encourage good applicants. Should you choose to apply, we will try to reach a decision in the Department without undue delay before passing on your papers for further consideration by the Colleges, the Degree Committee of our Faculty Board and the Board of Graduate Studies. You should not take any steps to come to Cambridge before you receive an admission letter from the Board of Graduate Studies stating that you have satisfied all conditions. If you have any further questions regarding your application please feel free to contact us at .
