Graduate Admissions


Using the Applicant Portal

The Applicant Portal is where you create, submit and pay for your application for study. It includes a section for you to indicate whether or not you wish to be considered for funding. You can also request references and manage your reference requests, and upload any other required supporting documentation.

After you have submitted your application, complete with all the necessary supporting documents, the Applicant Portal will be the first place you can find out whether you have been made an offer.

If you are made an offer, you will then be assigned a Self-Service account, which you will be able to use throughout your time studying at Cambridge. For more information on the Self-Service account, please see our Self-Service Account page.

Accessing the Applicant Portal

Once you have selcted which course you want to apply for in the Course Directory, and read the information under the 'How to Apply' tab, click the Apply Online button located at the top of the right hand column. You will then be taken directly to the Applicant Portal.

If you have already started an application and would like to continue it, log in via the Applicant Portal.

We advise all applicants to apply as early as possible. We recommend not waiting until the day of the deadline to submit your application.

If you are applying for funding, there are two deadlines to consider:

Application for both is via the same online form but you must apply by whichever deadline comes first. Which this will be depends on the course and your status.

Please note

All deadlines for the submission of the application are 12:00pm (midday) UK time on the date stated.

You will not be able to submit your application until you have uploaded all the required supporting documents.
