International Students


Students who do not hold a UK or Irish passport will need immigration permission in order to come to the UK and study at Cambridge.   

The type of permission you require depends on the course you are coming to study: 

Full-time course longer than 6 months Student visa
A course or period of study less than 6 months Visitor visa
Part-time course longer than 6 months See our studying part-time page

You may already have a UK immigration status which permits study on your chosen course. If so, you will be asked to provide evidence of this prior to starting a course.
