How do I apply?

Your application will be made via the UCAS form, and includes details of your current subjects and grades, teachers' references, and a personal statement. It is worth remembering that the closing date for applications to Cambridge is on 15 October, earlier than for other universities. Don't leave it too late!

All applications for undergraduate degrees are handled by the individual colleges that make up the University of Cambridge. The University has an excellent admissions website which will guide you through the process. We welcome students from all over the world. If you are an international applicant, please refer to the relevant pages on the Cambridge Admissions website.

Many applicants worry a great deal over whether they have chosen the 'right' College for their application. The admissions process for Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion is designed to ensure that it really does not matter which College you apply to: strong candidates will have a good chance of gaining a place at one of the Colleges in the University.

When making decisions about who to admit, we will take into account all of the information on the UCAS form as well as your interview, the quality of any essays which you submit in advance, and your performance in the at-interview assessment. More details about all of these elements can be found here.
