Apply to Cambridge

applyEntry to Cambridge is certainly competitive, but if you are among the brightest students in your school or college, if you are really interested in history, and if you are on course to achieve top grades in your forthcoming exams, you should certainly consider applying. You are likely to be a serious candidate.

We welcome and encourage applications from talented students from every educational and social background and would be delighted to hear from you. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need more information.

Applicants should find the following information useful:

  • First, general information about making an application to study History at Cambridge;
  • Secondly, a mock interview, which will give you a sense of what a Cambridge interview might be like;
  • Finally, advice about reading, the completion of which is important to a strong application.

All Cambridge Colleges have an Admissions Office that you can contact, and we also have a central Cambridge Admissions Office; details of these can be accessed by clicking here.
