Undergraduate Study


My Cambridge Application is an additional form that you need to complete if you're applying to study an undergraduate degree at Cambridge. Applicants to the Graduate Course in Medicine do not need to complete My Cambridge Application.

Once you submit your UCAS application, you'll get an email from us within 48 hours with instructions and a link to your My Cambridge Application.

The form is personalised, so we'll only ask you the relevant questions for your application.

For most applicants, the deadline will be 22 October 2024 (6pm UK time).

Before you start the form

Documents and information you need to prepare:

  • names of high school qualifications you've taken and the awarding body - in the United Kingdom this is an examination board

You might also need:

  • £60 for the application fee if you're applying from outside of the UK, Ireland, Channel Islands or Isle of Man. Some applicants won't need to pay this fee. Check whether you need to pay.
  • a transcript
  • details of the topics you studied at high school, if you're leaving school this year or you left last year
  • scores and dates of any English language tests you've taken, such as IELTS
  • scores and dates of your SATs, if you took them
  • a Cambridge specific personal statement. This is optional. For example, if you are applying to a course that is only offered at Cambridge, you can give information about why you want to study that course specifically.
  • details of how your studies will be funded, if you’re an international student

Transcript requirements

We'll tell you in the form if you need to provide a transcript.

You'll need a high school transcript if you do not have some or any of these qualifications:

  • 6 or more GCSEs or IGCSEs
  • 5 or more Scottish National Qualifications
  • AS or A levels, Scottish Advanced Highers or the International Baccalaureate

We also ask for a high school transcript if you took GCSE, IGCSE or Scottish National Qualification exams more than 3 years ago.

You'll need a university transcript if you’ve completed more than one year at another university.

Please ask your high school, college or university to provide and sign the transcript.

The transcript should be in English, or translated into English and authorised (signed or stamped) by an official translation service. This can also be done by your school, college or university.

Transcripts need to include:

  • subjects you've taken
  • grades you achieved
  • dates when you took your exams

Transcripts need to be:

  • a .pdf file
  • a maximum of 5 MB
