Graduate Admissions

Expected Academic Standard

Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK Masters (Distinction).

If your degree is not from the UK, please check International Qualifications to find the equivalent in your country.

A master's or another research degree in a relevant subject is essential. Evidence of interest in or commitment to Latin America is expected. Students applying from external institutions who are studying for or already hold a master's qualification are expected to achieve the equivalent of a distinction across their course of study – conditions will be set on a case-by-case basis according to the assessment criteria used at each institution. Students already at Cambridge applying to continue from the MPhil to the PhD should have attained, or be expecting to obtain, an overall mark of 73% per cent with at least 75 per cent in their thesis or coursework.
