Applications for admission in October 2024 open in early September 2023 and closes for all applications on 25 February 2024.

Applicants should refer to the Postgraduate Admissions page for links to the application portal, deadlines, guidance and information.

Please note the following:

  • Applicants, who will also require funding support from the University and Cambridge Trust, must submit their complete applications by 5 December 2023: see University funding deadlines. Note that US applicants must apply by 11 October.
  • The Course code is CSM3.
  • The application form includes a questionnaire. This asks for:
    • one or two brief project proposals of no more than 400 words each which will help the MPhil Admissions Panel to identify potential supervisors, and indicates in which area you wish to undertake a project;
    • five modules from the current year's syllabus with no more than four modules chosen from Michaelmas Term and no more than two from Lent Term.
      Successful applicants will be invited to select from the list of modules we expect to be offered in the next academic year.
      The 2024-25 module names and brief descriptions will be published in late July 2024.
  • Please note that there is an application fee.
  • Applications are considered in batches as a gathered field.
  • Applicants who are longlisted for a place on the course will be interviewed. Interviews may be carried out by phone, Skype, or Zoom.

Please note that your application can only be considered by the department once it has been submitted. Your application can only be submitted if it is complete.
You will be able to upload all your supporting material including transcripts, degree certificates, and language proficiency test scores. It is therefore very important to have all your supporting material, including agreement from your referees to provide you with references, and your transcripts, ready to submit before you start the application.
