Undergraduate Admissions

Emily Tomlinson

As Director of Admissions, I would like to welcome you to the admissions pages for Christ’s College. 

Choosing a college to apply to can be a difficult choice and we are delighted that you are considering us. In these pages we will give you information about the courses available to study at Christ’s and the admissions processes for them, the facilities we have at Christ’s and what life is like here. In short, we hope that these pages will give you some good reasons why Christ’s could be the right college for you whatever your background or interests.

Cambridge’s collegiate system, where all students are admitted by and are members of a college within the university, is one of its great strengths as it provides strong and secure academic and social foundations on which students can build while they are here.

Christ's College, Cambridge main gate, St Andrew's Street

The University provides lots of general information about admissions. You will find additional information about Christ’s on these pages. Our students have also written student profiles, contributed to our student Q&A film, and have their own website which contains even more information about life at Christ’s.

Welcome again to Christ’s online, we hope you enjoy these pages. If, after reading them, you have any further questions please do not hesitate to send us an email.
 

Dr Emily Tomlinson, Director of Admissions for Christ’s College.
