Undergraduate study

The undergraduate study page for international students describes what you can study, how to apply, entrance requirements, application deadlines, international fees, and finance and financial support.

Graduate study

Graduate Admissions process applications for most graduate courses.   In addition, to the standard information for all graduate students, Graduate Admissions offers additional information to international students on entry requirements, financial matters, and immigration.

Cambridge Judge Business School

Many international students undertake the MBA, Master of Finance, Executive Education or Postgraduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship at the Cambridge Judge Business School. You would apply direct to this School.

Education: PGCE, courses for teachers

The Faculty of Education accepts some international students and its website details the structure of the course, entry requirements, the application procedures, costs and funding opportunities.

Executive and Professional Education

Cambridge offers a wide range of programmes and solutions in the areas of executive and professional education (EPE) to complement its traditional undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. Aimed at executives, and those in more specific professional disciplines, they will help individuals and organisations to develop and grow by meeting their needs personally, strategically, and operationally.

Short & part-time courses: Institute of Continuing Education

Our Institute of Continuing Education offers short non-credit courses, residential and summer schools, and part-time, award-bearing programmes ranging from Undergraduate Certificates through to Master of Studies degrees.  These are open to individuals living outside the UK, and the Institute describes what you need to consider before applying.

Visiting students

Each year, a small number of students come to Cambridge to study or undertake supervised research as part of their overseas qualification. Usually, this is by arrangement with a University Faculty or Department and predominantly applies to visiting graduate students. Please find a list of Faculties and Departments, with links to their websites, at .  Some of the Cambridge Colleges consider applications from overseas students wishing to undertake short course of undergraduate study at Cambridge.

The University participates in the Erasmus exchange programme and welcomes students from institutions with whom we have bilateral agreements.  The School of Clinical Medicine also accepts a limited number of student to undertake a medical elective. The University also participates in the Amgen Scholars Programme.
