Emmanuel College Admissions Office.

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


STUDENTS REGISTERED AT OTHER UK UNIVERSITIES: Emmanuel College will only, as a matter of principle, consider applications from students enrolled on degree courses at other UK universities in very exceptional circumstances.

Any application to study at Cambridge would need strong support from your course director or other academic tutor at your current university. A reference/letter of recommendation from that person to the College would be required before we could consider an application, and such applications would still be subject to the same academic assessment as any other application to the University.
