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 study

The application deadline for the 2018 entry is 15 October 2017, 6.00 pm (UK time) 

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 2017.

Graduate study

If you are applying for graduate study, please check and apply by the specific course deadline.  Some deadlines are as early as mid-November (LLM Law) and there will be two general course deadlines of 6 December 2017 and 4 January 2018

Please apply by the relevant deadline set for entry to your particular course and complete the 'Funding' section in the online Applicant Portal in order to be considered for funding.

There will be no differential of deadlines for application between UK or EU or International graduate applicants.

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.

 


 

It is not currently known what the impact of leaving the EU will be on UK policy on higher education fees, loans and bursaries.  However, the University of Cambridge has confirmed that EU students who are already studying at Cambridge, who have an offer to study at Cambridge, or who apply to start their studies in 2018 will not be subject to the Overseas fee at any point during the course of their studies.  The fee for those students will remain at the Home/EU rate applicable at the time.

The fee status of EU nationals for 2019 entry onwards has yet to be determined by the UK government.  EU students should regularly check for updates at www.cam.ac.uk/eu.
