Entry requirements

Typical offers for applicants being indexed on a scale within the Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) would be based on a rank of 98.5–99.5 overall together with documentation of similar performance in relevant individual subjects. These depend on the course applied for, and will be set by the Colleges. For many courses, a top result in mathematics at the highest academic level will form part of any offer, and this can apply to such courses as Economics, Engineering and Natural Sciences, as well as Mathematics itself.

English language requirements

If English is not your first language then any offer made is likely to include English language requirements. See which English language qualifications we accept on our English language requirements page.

Fees and finance

As an international student, Fees vary between different courses.  Limited financial support may be available from the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust, or College funds.

If you're unsure as to whether your fee status would be Home or international, please see our fee status page.


If you think you may meet the entry requirements that we require from your country, we would suggest that you familiarise yourself with how to apply to Cambridge. There is also specific information for international applicants and an application timetable with dates and deadlines relevant for international students.

Admissions Assessments

Please also refer to the information about admission assessments. If the course you’re applying for requires you to take a pre-interview written assessment, you must be registered in advance for the assessment. The assessment centre where you’ll take the assessment must register you (you can’t register yourself) by the relevant assessment registration deadline.


Interviews are held in Cambridge and a number of overseas locations, including Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur) and Singapore. Please refer to the information on our overseas interviews page for full details.

International Events
