How to Apply

To study Engineering at Cambridge you need to be admitted by a College.

The University's Undergraduate Prospectus is the best starting point for details about how to apply. Your school or college should have a reference copy and the information is also on the University's website.

Further copies of the Undergraduate Prospectus are available from:

Cambridge Admissions Office (CAO)
Fitzwilliam House 
32 Trumpington Street 
Cambridge
CB2 1QY

Tel:   (01223) 333308 
E-mail:   admissions@cam.ac.uk

The Alternative Prospectus is published on-line by Cambridge University Students' Union (CUSU).

Tel:   (01223) 333313 
E-mail:   access@cusu.cam.ac.uk

You must apply well in advance; most students apply at the end of their first year in the sixth form. If you wish to take a year out between school and university (in industry for example) you can still apply at the end of your first year in the sixth form and ask for deferred entry. In this case you may also apply after taking your A Levels. Applications must be made by mid-October. All decisions on applications to Cambridge are made by the end of the following January.
