Postgraduate Study


If you have not previously studied in the UK, it's important to check that your qualifications are considered suitable preparation for entry to your chosen course.

Below provides equivalence guidelines of the University's minimum academic requirements for each country. You should refer to the Course Directory for the academic requirements for your specific course, as these may be higher than the University's minimum academic requirements.

If you do not meet the requirements for your specific course, please contact the department to check whether they will still consider an application from you.

For many countries, the University recognises significant variance between institutions and this may be reflected in your academic offer condition (for example, a score of 70% from one university may not be considered the same as a score of 70% from another university).

For further information on international qualification equivalency, see the UK ENIC website.

Adjusting to life and studying in the UK went smoothly thanks for the numerous social communities there are at Cambridge.
