How to apply to Christ's from outside the UK

This page is part of the International Students (EU and non-EU) section on the Christ's College, Cambridge website. It provides additional application support for international students

We know that as students from outside the UK, you may have additional questions on aspects of the application process, as well as some differences to negotiate between what students in your country normally do when applying to local universities and what is needed for your Cambridge application.

This part of our international students section offers a helping hand, providing additional detail and explanation for you on some aspects of the process. Once you have sent your application forms, further support will then be available through the current applicants section (for both international students and UK students). 

Here are some comments from previous international applicants: 

  • "Christ's College is probably the one of the best colleges in communication with current applicants with all the information clearly stated on the website."
  • "If you are applying to Christ's you are in good hands! The admissions team is super friendly and helpful. Their site is comprehensive, informative and is regularly updated with information regarding interview timelines, accommodation and submission of documents. They even have student profiles from international students currently studying at Christ's which provides an eye-opening glimpse of life in the college."

Pages on aspects of the application process: making a valid application

The following pages provide information for international students to complement the information on our how to apply page. They will help you to make a valid application to Christ's College, with all the information we need.

On 20 September we publish the Christ's College current applicants section for students who have already submitted a UCAS application. The current applicants section guides you (in detail!) through the next stages of the application process, including:

"I didn't realise at first that the correspondence with Christ's would occur via email, or how important and informative these messages were."
