Deadline for application to Cambridge: 15th October

Earlier deadlines apply to applicants wishing to be interviewed overseas. The full timetable for the Overseas Interview Scheme, which currently operates in Australia, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Canada and Hong Kong, may be found here.

Applications for some subjects are considered as part of a second admissions round, the deadline for which is 1st March. Information about the 1st March deadline can be read on the University's website here

We recommend that applicants who have only recently returned to study apply for the 1st March deadline if their subject choice is not excluded.  The following subjects are excluded from the 1 March deadline:

  • Architecture
  • History of Art
  • Medicine
  • Music
  • Philosophy
  • Veterinary Medicine

Applicants for these subjects must apply by 15th October, even for deferred entry, and should be aware that they may be at a disadvantage if their referees are unable to predict grades for them if they have not already achieved the required academic standards.

For all subjects, if you are also applying to other UK universities, you will need to ensure that your application is submitted by the UCAS deadline of 15th January.
