Postgraduate Admissions


If you have not previously studied in the UK, it is important to check the equivalence guidelines for your country using the search function on this page. This is to ensure the qualifications you hold are considered suitable preparation for entry onto your chosen course.

Please note the information given here is a guideline of the University's minimum academic requirements. Please 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 academic requirement for your specific course you should check with your department to check whether they would still like to consider an application from you.

It should be noted that, 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 per cent from one university may not be considered to be the same as a score of 70 per cent from another university.)

For further information on international qualification equivalency, please see the UK ENIC website. UK ENIC is the UK National Information Centre for the recognition and evaluation of international qualifications and skills, and provides services for individuals and organisations to compare international qualifications against UK qualification framework levels.

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