How to apply

Admission to the University is managed by the Colleges. Therefore, if you decide to apply for HSPS at Cambridge you will need to choose a College to consider your application (or decide on an open application).

 

The main application deadline for applying to Cambridge University is 15th October*. Applications are made via UCAS. Everyone with a realistic chance of being offered a place is invited to attend an interview. The interviews are designed to see how you work through problems and take on new ideas, and to find out more about you. This is an important part of our selection procedure. In addition, some Colleges ask applicants to submit examples of their written work (one or two school/college essays) prior to interview. Detailed information about applying to the University is available from the Undergraduate Study website at: www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/applying

*Please note that there are different application deadlines for mature students and those wishing to be interviewed overseas.  See www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/applying for further details.
