Postgraduate Study


Please read this section if you are currently, or have previously been, a graduate or postgraduate student at the University of Cambridge.

Information on this page is additional information for students who have applied for admission as a continuing student.

Applicant Portal and tracking your application

You can track the progress of your application to continue online through your Applicant Portal up until you receive a conditional offer letter. At that point, you will receive access to your Self-Service account, which you should use to continue to track your application.

Academic conditions

Please note that the academic condition for continuation set by your Degree Committee is almost always higher than a 'pass' in the examination of your current course. A pass in the examination, therefore, may not necessarily be sufficient to satisfy the academic condition.

Continuers currently studying at Cambridge

If you are currently studying at Cambridge, the Postgraduate Admissions Office will complete your academic condition when the Degree Committee has communicated to them that you have met the requirements in your academic condition. You do not need to provide the Postgraduate Admissions Office with evidence of your results, and if you do we will be unable to complete the academic condition without the Degree Committee's approval. The date of the Degree Committee meetings are often later than the date required to meet all your offer conditions and the Postgraduate Admissions Office is aware of this.

Continuers studying at another institution

If you are currently studying at another institution, please provide/upload an official final transcript or degree certificate, showing that the degree has been awarded and the grade obtained, if relevant.
