Undergraduate Study

 

Entrance requirements

If you wish to apply for an undergraduate place at Cambridge, you need to be near the top of your year group, and doing very well in the subject area you'd like to study.

For many Cambridge courses, qualifications in certain subjects are required and all Colleges expect such subjects to be passed, normally with the highest grade available. For specific requirements and subject preferences for each course, see individual course outlines.

If English isn't your first language, see English language requirements.

Qualifications

We accept a wide variety of qualifications from all over the world and expect students to be achieving the highest grades – most successful applicants ultimately exceed the conditions of their offer.

Cambridge Colleges welcome applications from a large number of international qualifications, and in addition to those listed in the pages below, typical offer levels for a range of qualifications, including the European Baccalaureate, International A Levels, and the International Baccalaureate, can be found in the main entrance requirements section. Please note that International AS and A Levels (offered by Cambridge International, Oxford AQA or Pearson Edexcel) are recognised as equivalent to UK Board GCE AS and A Levels.

Check your country page below to ensure the qualifications you’re studying are considered suitable preparation for entry to the University of Cambridge.

If you can’t find your country listed below, or if you’re studying for a different qualification from those listed, it’s a good idea to make early contact with the Cambridge Admissions Office to discuss the suitability of your qualifications.
