COVID-19 update

We are aware that the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak will be of significant concern to offer holders and prospective applicants. Queens’ College is closely monitoring the situation, and further information will be distributed to offer holders as it becomes available.

We recommend that offer holders and prospective applicants regularly check the University’s advice page for any updates. Emails will continue to be monitored during this period – please direct any enquiries or concerns to admissions@queens.cam.ac.uk.


We admit students to Queens’ College based on academic potential. Queens’ College seeks outstanding applicants from any school or country, regardless of whether there is any previous tradition of applying to Cambridge. The College aims to ensure that no suitably qualified applicant is prevented from making an application because of financial or social concerns.

All subjects apart from Archaeology and Philosophy are offered at Queens' College. Find out more about Queens' College from the viewpoint of our current students.

We interview all suitably qualified applicants. Offers are pitched realistically, taking into account each applicant’s individual circumstances.

Open days are held each year and are a great opportunity to find out more about the College, its students, Fellows and facilities. The College is also happy to arrange visits by Fellows and students to schools. You might also want to browse our list of frequently asked questions to find out more about the application process.  If you would like a copy of our prospectus by post, you can request one.  The Cambridge University Student Union (CUSU) produce an alternative prospectus. Follow our Twitter page to find out more about the College and the admissions process.
