Admission criteria

Darwin College is pleased to consider applications from students wishing to study for any postgraduate degree.   Darwin is a wholly postgraduate College and does not admit students studying for undergraduate degrees. We admit students from all over the world and at present over 75 different countries are represented in our student body. If you would like to speak to a current member or a Darwinian in your field of research about the College please email the Dean at djn33@cam.ac.uk

In general, the admission criteria of Darwin College are the same as those imposed by the Department of the University you wish to join. In other words, if you are offered a place by the Department, normally you will also have met the academic criteria used by the College. Please remember that Darwin gives preference to those students who nominate Darwin as their first or second choice College.  Please also remember that the earlier you apply, the better are your chances of securing admission.

Darwin does not currently admit MASts in Astrophysics, Materials Science and Physics.

Admission procedure

Admission procedure

Graduate students wishing to come to Darwin must first be accepted by a Department of the University.  Applications for admission to the University are handled, in the main, by the Postgraduate Admissions Office. There are a few applications for Graduate Membership which are not handled centrally and these are listed in the Cambridge Admissions Prospectus. Once you have been offered a place in a Department, the Postgraduate Admissions Office will send your application papers to the College which you have nominated as your first choice. If that College does not offer you membership, your papers go to your second choice.  After that your application will be directed to a further College which is determined by a complicated set of criteria. Please remember that once you have been successful in obtaining a place in a Department, the University guarantees to find you a College, though this may not be one that you have chosen yourself.

An offer of membership by Darwin College is conditional on you fulfilling all academic and financial conditions laid down by the Postgraduate Admissions Office in their offer to you.
