Postgraduate Admissions

Postgraduates wishing to study in Cambridge apply both to a Faculty or Department and to a College. Postgraduate teaching and supervisions are arranged by the relevant Faculty and not by the College. This means that there need be no necessary connection between the subjects taught by the Fellows of the College and those studied by postgraduates at the College. Trinity welcomes applications for any field of study pursued at Cambridge University.

There are approximately 350 postgraduate students at Trinity at any one time. About half arrive at Trinity after taking their undergraduate degree elsewhere; the rest were undergraduates at Trinity. Trinity attracts postgraduate applicants of the highest academic calibre from universities all over the world, and so postgraduate life at the College has a highly international flavour. This large and diverse body of students means that Trinity offers a thriving and wide-ranging postgraduate community.

Postgraduate Open Day

The Postgraduate Open Day usually takes place at the beginning of November. This event is open to all those seeking to apply for postgraduate study at the University of Cambridge.  For further information visit Postgraduate Open Day.
