How to apply

The majority of applications for graduate study are made via the University Graduate Admissions Office, via the online Applicant Portal , where you have the opportunity to choose Homerton as your college of choice.  However some courses require applications to be made directly through a Department or Faculty. Although this application procedure is different, please keep the College Graduate Administrator informed of the process of your application.

Keeping track of your application

Once you have made your application the University Graduate Admissions Office will send information on how to log in to your self-service account. You can use this to track the progress of your University application and make any changes to your contact details.

The College uses the information stored in this account to contact you. For this reason please ensure that the contact information is kept up to date. If you do not have access to this service, please inform the college graduate administrator of any changes.

College Membership

Colleges are only able to consider applications after a conditional offer has been made by the University. Once you have been accepted by the University your application form will be circulated to the colleges on your preference list.  In order to be considered by Homerton College you should list us as one of your preference colleges. (NB Applicants who wish to be considered for a Charter Scholarship must name Homerton College as their first preference college). The College Graduate Administrator will contact you by email if the College is able to make an offer of membership. Any offer of a place will be made on condition that you satisfy the University’s academic and financial conditions for admission. 

What to do once you have received an offer

After receiving your University offer, you should do the following:

  • Apply for Accommodation. Once you have received a conditional offer from Homerton College you will be able to apply for College Accommodation, for further details please see our accommodation pages. All Full-Time graduate students of the University of Cambridge must live within 10 miles of the centre of Cambridge, unless they have specific permission from the University. You can discuss these arrangements with the Graduate Admissions Office.
  • Return Requested forms. In April (or soon after you have received a conditional offer if your application is made after this time), you will receive an email which will contain a link to a page where a number of documents are listed for you to return. Please return the forms to the Graduate Administrator as soon as possible after you receive this request.
