For me, the best thing about Emma is the
inter-year socialising - it makes it a lovely
community to be a part of

Entrance Requirements

We treat each applicant as an individual and make our offers based on all the information available to us. The process is competitive and we will make our selection based principally on our assessment of your academic potential.

We have your application form, with your past academic record, your school reference, personal statement, any written work you may have been asked to submit and assessment results (such as the BMAT).

STUDENTS REGISTERED AT ANOTHER UNIVERSITY: It is not possible to transfer or apply mid-course from another University (either in the UK or from overseas) to Emmanuel College. Applicants must be prepared to undertake a full course of study at Emmanuel in order to proceed to a degree of the University of Cambridge. Prospective applicants would need to withdraw from their current course, in order to be considered, and even then there is no guarantee that you will be accepted by the College.
