Postgraduate Study


At the University of Cambridge, we welcome applications from all backgrounds, including refugees and asylum seekers.

We're a welcoming and international community and the city of Cambridge itself has ‘City of Sanctuary’ status.

Refugees, asylum seekers or anyone from a forced migration background may have specific concerns when considering or starting university, and it’s important to us that they feel supported during this time. We recognise that you may have experienced barriers and difficulties that can have a significant impact on educational opportunities and outcomes.

We hope that the resources below are useful for your application. You may also be interested in the University’s Refugee Hub, run by the Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement.
