Graduate Admissions


Our part-time programmes offer a more flexible way to study for a research degree at the University of Cambridge - meaning you can fit your studies around your career and other commitments.

Part-time study can be ideal for those who are looking to gain a postgraduate qualification without leaving employment and wish to develop their careers while they continue earning; or for those who are home based for whatever reason and wish to develop their skills.

Part-time research degrees are particularly good for those looking to undertake research in an area related to their current professional environment, and many part-time researchers choose to focus on professional and work-related topics in their research.

You can filter the course search in the course directory to view courses that are offered part-time.

There are different types of part-time study administered by different bodies, Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) and the Judge Business School.

If you are interested in part-time study please read the document "Part-time Graduate Study – Information for Prospective Students" which provides detailed information on the requirements for part-time study.

Distance Learning

Unlike part-time degrees at many universities, the Cambridge part-time courses are not distance learning degrees. There are attendance requirements, and you will need to live close enough to travel to Cambridge to fulfil these.

The Institute of Continuing Education however does offer some fully-online non degree courses
