Students in Third Court
In Third Court

We regularly receive applications from students on a university course outside the UK. Please be aware that it is not possible to transfer credits and start in second year at Cambridge. All Cambridge courses at must be started from the beginning.

The information on this page applies only for applications to Christ's College.

How to apply

We recommend that you read the how to apply page carefully to ensure that you're aware of the various forms, dates and deadlines. You may also find the section for international applicants helpful.

Please check well in advance whether your course has a compulsory Admissions Test, as you will need to make arrangements to take this and be registered by the correct deadline. The details vary for different courses and may change from year to year. Information for each year's applicants is available from July, and please be aware that the assessment registration deadline may be before the application deadline.

Your UCAS reference can be written either by a teacher from your former school or by a tutor at your current university (if they are able to comment in detail on your academic ability). 

Depending on what qualifications you took before your university course, you may also need to send a transcript as part of your application. Please see the transcript flowchart and the transcript page for further information about sending a high school transcript. If you have not taken any exams at university yet, we would not expect a university transcript, however - your transcript would just cover your high school exams.

After you have applied via UCAS, please send us a summary of curriculum for the current year by 22 October (at the latest). You will need to demonstrate that you are covering / have covered any course-specific subject requirements for the subject you are applying for (details of subject requirements are in the applying section on the relevant subject page). Details of how to send curriculum details are available here from 20 September each year (this page is part of the current applicants section so is only available 20 Sept - early Jan).

Although we are happy to consider students studying at a university outside the United Kingdom, please be aware that it is essential to include the information in your application: failure to declare that you are currently studying elsewhere is grounds for the cancellation of your application and/or withdrawal of any offer made.
