Postgraduate Admissions

 
Can I call you to discuss my enquiry?

To contact us, please submit an enquiry form. We aim to respond to your enquiry within 5 working days, however we are processing a high volume of emails so there may be a delay in our response.

I have received an offer for admission in the academic year 2021/22 and would like to be considered for entry in October 2022 instead, how do I do this?

Please refer to our 'Deferring an Application' page for more information and read our guidance on the re-submission process.

I cannot book an English language test because test centres are closed – what do I do?

If you have been set a condition to provide an IELTS or TOEFL test certificate you may be aware that test centres in some countries are closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Due to the test centre closures, we have made the following changes to our English language requirements. We will now accept:

  • TOEFL iBT Home Edition Test, which may be taken at home, subject to eligibility. The online test is the same format and level as the one you would take at a test centre. If you take this test, please upload your certificate in the normal way. If you successfully pass the test at the required level for your course, you will then be assessed remotely by the Language Centre (free of charge) before we complete the English language offer condition.
  • IELTS Indicator, which may be taken at home, subject to some technical requirements. The online test is the same format and level as the one you would take at an IELTS test centre. Candidates should receive their test results within seven days of taking the test. Once you have received your test certificate, please upload a screenshot or scan of the certificate to the self-service portal so that we can verify the results online.

If you are not able, or do not wish to take the above online tests, you should continue to check the availability of the TOEFL and IELTS test centres in your country. If your course starts in Michaelmas Term 2022 (October), there is currently still time to provide a test certificate by the offer conditions deadline. We recommend you check the following websites regularly for updates on language test centres.

IELTS testing has resumed in some regions that were previously closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. To search for test centre availability in your area, please visit their website.

Can I post you my documents?

Please do not send us any documents by post until further notice, you should upload all documents via your self-service account. To meet the academic conditions of your offer, and if your institution has this facility, you should share your academic documents via a secure electronic transcript system (e.g. Digitary or HEAR) if your institution has this facility. You should request the relevant system to share a link with us via bgstranscripts@admin.cam.ac.uk so that we can access and view your transcript online. If your institution does not have this facility you should upload your original certified transcripts to the Self-Service portal.

My institution has made changes to the examination process and is going to issue unclassified degrees. Will these be accepted as sufficient evidence to meet academic conditions?

The University recognises that there has been significant disruption to the current study of many students, and that assessment and examination processes may have changed. All academic grades, scores and classifications awarded to university graduates will therefore be recognised in the normal way even if the assessment methods have changed. Please upload the final results of your degree to the self-service portal in the normal way as instructed in the offer conditions booklet.
