Postgraduate Study

A dedicated home for postgraduates since 1965

Wolfson is a natural home for postgraduate students at Cambridge. We are a thriving community of scholars from around the world, two-thirds of whom are pursuing Master's and PhD degrees.


At Wolfson you will find an egalitarian ethos, where you mix with Fellows, academic visitors and students from other disciplines.  Our Fellowship, Interdisciplinary Research Hubs and mentoring team provide a rich network for fostering your academic and professional future. We pride ourselves in particular on meeting the needs of our part-time Master's and our PhD students, offering mentorship and research skills training throughout the duration of your degree.

The diverse make-up of our student body and the mix of mature undergraduates and postgraduates means that differences are celebrated and cultures are shared.

Welcome to Wolfson.
