Applications are made and tracked via the Applicant Portal and offers are managed through the Self-Service account.

Applicant Portal

Create and track your application

Postgraduate applications to the University of Cambridge are made through the Applicant Portal.

You can create, submit and pay for your application through the portal, and indicate whether or not you wish to be considered for funding. You can also request references, manage your reference requests, and upload any other required supporting documentation. 

You can save your application at any stage and return later to compete it.

After you have submitted your application, complete with all the necessary supporting documents, the Applicant Portal will be where you go to track the progress of your application, and find out if you are made an offer.

See How do I apply? for more details on starting your application.

Self-Service account

If you've been made an offer of admission

If you receive a conditional offer of admission, you'll be assigned a Self-Service account. Login instructions will be emailed to you an hour after you receive your official conditional offer email.

The Self-Service account tells you everything you need to know about the progress of your offer, including finding out about College membership. It's also where you can provide documents to meet your offer conditions.

It's important that you check your Self-Service account regularly as this is the primary way in which we will communicate with you.

Your Self-Service account allows you to:​

  • View your offer conditions
  • See which College has offered you membership
  • Print a certificate of your offer
  • Accept or decline your offer
  • Request a deferral of admission
  • Provide documents to meet your conditions
