Graduate Admissions


The University of Cambridge has attracted many of the very best minds since 1209, when a group of scholars left Oxford to set up a new institution in Cambridge.

Today the University has grown to around 20,000 students, 7,500 of whom are graduate students. Of those graduate students, 50% come from overseas, and over 40% are women. The University and its Colleges are now spread throughout the city.

At Cambridge, graduate courses are tough: we offer a lot and we expect a lot. But if you have the commitment, the ability and the motivation, you can expect great rewards - exhilarating intellectual satisfaction and a capability much sought after by employers in industry, academia and other sectors.
