Applications

All scholarships require that you apply to the University of Cambridge via the normal online application form, and most scholarships require that you apply by the relevant deadline.

There are different procedures for applying for undergraduate study (BA and similar) and for postgraduate study (Masters, PhD and similar).

Deadlines

Undergraduate applicants

For courses starting in the academic year 2017-18, undergraduate applicants should apply by 15 October 2016 

However, there are some exceptions.  If you are applying for undergraduate study and wish to be interviewed in China, Malaysia or Singapore, the deadline is 20 September 2016.

Graduate applicants

International graduate applicants should apply by 7 December 2016, and home/EU graduate applicants by 4 January 2017.

If you are applying for graduate study, check your specific course deadline as some are earlier than 7 December 2016 - for example, the deadline for applicants to the LLM is earlier.

More information

Before making an application to the University, research thoroughly your chosen course of study (via the University web site).

Also read the Cambridge Trust’s information about eligibility and the relevant information pages.  Some of the Trust’s scholarships will require you to make an additional application, to the relevant funding partner, so please read carefully the information about individual scholarships for which you may be eligible.
