15 October: All standard undergraduate applications and those applying for Architecture, History of Art, Law, Medicine, Graduate Course in Medicine, Music, Philosophy, or Veterinary Medicine. Applications received after this date for subjects not stated above will be held over to the next admissions round in March.
Applicants who are able to complete an application by the 15 October deadline are advised to do so rather than wait for the March admissions round, as places for popular subjects may be filled.
Earlier deadlines apply to applicants wishing to be interviewed overseas. Please see the University of Cambridge website for further details.
1 March: We recognise that for many mature students who are returning to education, and especially those currently studying on a one year course, the 15 October deadline might be too early. We therefore run a second admissions round later in the academic year. Applications for Architecture, History of Art, Law, Medicine, Graduate Course in Medicine, Music, Philosophy, or Veterinary Medicine are never considered during the second admissions round, this also applies for deferred applications in these subjects.
If your application is unsuccessful at Wolfson, but we consider it strong enough for re-assessment, we will make it available to the other mature Colleges for consideration (Lucy Cavendish, Hughes Hall and St Edmund’s).
Applications will be considered once the application deadline has passed. We do not operate rolling admissions for any undergraduate course.
