Important Dates

The following notes give a brief overview of the application process for candidates to Cambridge, with further details for those applying to Emmanuel College.

IMPORTANT: All correspondence will be emailed to applicants, so it is very important that you check your inbox (including your junk email inbox) frequently during the application and interview period. If you email us, please state your full name, subject and UCAS personal ID number.

COLLEGE POLICY: Please take careful note of Emmanuel's College Admissions Policy.

STUDENTS REGISTERED AT ANOTHER UNIVERSITY, WHO ARE NOT IN THE FINAL YEAR OF THEIR DEGREE: 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 completely 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.
15 October Deadline for registration for pre-interview assessments (excluding the BMAT, which has a registration deadline of 1 October; see above). You must register (separately from your UCAS application) for pre-interview assessments.

Please note: you should generally expect to receive details of your SAQ login within 48 hours of submitting your UCAS application. It is your responsibility to check your email inbox for your SAQ login details and failure to submit a completed SAQ on time will render your application invalid. Non-COPA applicants may also need to submit a Transcript by this date.
