Please see How to apply for the application timeline and details of the process. Further information about the application process is available on the University admissions website, and applicants from outside the UK are encouraged to also read the Christ's International Students section.
It will be important to read the relevant course information carefully on both the Christ's subject page and the University Admissions website (updated in March each year) before applying. Please check whether your course requires you to register for an assessment, and ensure that you are registered by the deadline for your subject (if your course requires a College-registered assessment, you do not need to register as we will organise this for you if you are selected for interview).
