Department of Computer Science and Technology


Applications for admission in October 2022 opened in early September 2021 and will close on 16 May 2022. Applicants also seeking funding must apply no later than 2 December 2021 for the academic year 2022-23.

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

Please note the following:

  • Applications for funding support from the University and Cambridge Trust must be submitted earlier than the deadline above: see University funding deadlines.
  • Research students are admitted to the Certificate of Postgraduate Studies in Computer Science (see CPGS) in the first instance.
  • The Course code is CSC1.
  • Applicants will also need to include a brief research abstract within the section of the application form which asks for a research topic and to indicate a potential supervisor's name, that is, the academic in the Department with whom you have been in discussion.
  • Please note that there is an application fee.
  • Applications are considered as they are received.

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 a research proposal. It is therefore very important to have all your supporting material, including agreement from your referees to provide you with references, your transcripts and research project proposal, ready to submit before you start the application.
