Wolfson College actively welcomes part-time students; there are currently 293 part-time student members on a variety of MSt and MEd programmes. An additional 33 students are currently undertaking part-time PhD and EdD research degrees.
Our tradition of taking a significant number of students from a variety of part-time programmes provides a congenial environment in which to meet other students, both part-time and full-time, during periods in residence. The breadth of our inclusive atmosphere, with no divisions between senior and junior members, is further extended by the presence of people from journalism, industry and the public services all of whom come to Wolfson for short periods of research or study.
As members of the College our part-time students have the opportunity to benefit fully from the intellectual and social experiences of Cambridge life.
Our current part-time students are studying for the following degrees:
The MSt degree is designed as a two-year part-time course and is awarded on the basis of attendance at a specified number of course sessions and an examination which consists of a thesis, practical tests and essays as appropriate:
- MSt in Applied Criminology and Police Management
- MSt in International Relations
- MSt in Local and Regional History
- MSt in the Study of Jewish-Christian Relations
- MSt Sustainability Leadership
- MSt in Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment

Wolfson College is experienced at recognising the levels of support required when dealing with issues specific to part-time postgraduate students from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds. There is a College Tutor whose role is dedicated to part-time students and who is responsible for the pastoral and welfare support of these students throughout their studies. There are also student welfare officers who have been fully trained to provide peer support.
