To find out about the subjects we teach at Trinity, we recommend you look through the College prospectus and the information about individual subjects. We accept applicants to all the subjects taught in the University of Cambridge, except Education and Veterinary Medicine.
If you are thinking of applying, you might find it helpful to attend one of the College’s Open Days or residential visits held in spring and early summer. These provide an opportunity to learn more about the College and its admissions procedures, to meet some of the Directors of Studies and discuss the content of University courses and the way in which the teaching system works. Open Days and Residentials are popular and must be booked.
If you do attend one of our events in Cambridge, take the opportunity to see several colleges. It is important to remember that all the colleges follow the same University courses, and lectures and practicals are the same for everyone studying a particular subject. Your college is responsible for providing the individual tuition which is characteristic of the Cambridge system; and in Trinity’s case we also provide accommodation for you to live in for the duration of your stay at Cambridge.
Each year, Trinity admits around 200 students, usually about 90 Arts subjects and 110 in the Sciences. There are no fixed quotas for individual subjects except in Medical Sciences. Normally we receive four to five applications for each place, and you can see the numbers admitted each year on the individual subjects pages and the university application statistics page.
If you are thinking of applying in 2021 to start your degree in 2022 or 2023, please have a look at the information specifically about how interviews will be held this year on our interview page.
