October 2019 entry

To study at Cambridge University, you need to apply a full year in advance. The application deadline for 2019 entry was 15 October 2018. 

For students who applied by 15 October 2018 and were interviewed, if you are not holding an offer, you can only be considered for 2019 entry at this stage if you are eligible to apply through Adjustment (which has very precise criteria for Cambridge University). Please read information about Adjustment and note the eligibility criteria carefully. 

If you are applying through Adjustment or need further information, please read:

Please do not contact Christ's College about Adjustment - the address to email is (or telephone: 01223 333308) if you have questions that are not answered in the links above.

If you are not eligible for Adjustment, and would like to study at Christ's/Cambridge, you may like to consider taking a gap year and making a post qualification application for 2020 entry. Further detail is available below. 


Applications have not yet opened for October 2020 entry (and deferred 2021 entry)

Applications will open for Cambridge University 2020 entry (and deferred 2021 entry) in September 2019, and the application deadline is 18:00 UK time on 15 October 2019, though candidates for overseas interviews in Malaysia and Singapore, and candidates for Organ Scholarships apply earlier. 

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 (if you're an EU student, please also read this news). 

It will be important to read the relevant course information carefully on both the University Admissions website and the Christ's subject page before applying. Please check whether your course requires a pre-interview admissions assessment, and ensure that you are registered by the deadline for your subject (if your course requires an at-interview assessment, you do not need to register as we will organise this for you if you are selected for interview).
