Map & How to Reach Us

Overseas applications and Visa

Overseas applicants should be aware that it can be difficult to obtain a visa for part time study. Under the UK government's immigration policy, our part time postgraduate courses are not eligible for a Tier 4 student visa. Therefore, we are unable to sponsor potential students to make Tier 4 visa applications to attend our PPD programme.

Application Deadlines

Taught courses have individual application deadlines so please refer to the course specific sites for further details of these. Partial applications submitted on the deadline will not be accepted.  It is in your interests to apply well in advance of the deadline.

Interviews

Some taught courses will require an interview. This will usually be conducted by either the course coordinator or the member of teaching staff. The interviews will provide you with the opportunity to discuss what you hope to gain from the programme. If attendance at the faculty for an interview is difficult (for example you are applying from overseas), then in some cases a Skype interview can be arranged.

Admissions Policy

Please find our Admissions policy, including general entry requirements, applying with special requirements, appeals and complaints.

Data Protection

In accordance with the University of Cambridge information compliance policy, the University and/or where relevant, the Colleges, will use the details you provide on your application form, together with additional details provided by any referee and recorded following any interview process.
