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, including the Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) and the Cambridge Judge Business School.

Distance learning

Unlike part-time degrees at many universities, the part-time courses at the University of Cambridge are not distance learning degrees where all study is undertaken remotely. You will be required to attend short residential sessions in Cambridge.

The Institute of Continuing Education, however, does offer some fully online non-degree courses. For more information see
