Undergraduate applications

Undergraduates Queens' Library

At Queens’ College we offer all undergraduate courses available at the University of Cambridge, except Archaeology and Philosophy.  You can find out more information about studying a subject at Queens’, as well as hearing from our current students, on our individual subject pages.

We also accept applications to the Foundation Year in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (a pre-degree course).  This innovative route is designed for a new field of candidates to help them realise their academic potential through a full-time, residential programme fully embedded in the Collegiate University.

Students are admitted to Queens’ based on academic ability and the potential to succeed in their chosen course. We encourage applications from all outstanding UK or international students.  This includes those whose schools have little or no experience of sending students to Cambridge, those who may be the first in their family to progress to higher education and those who have faced challenging personal circumstances.  Every applicant is considered individually, in a holistic assessment using all of the information available to us. Once students are admitted, we ensure that they are given the support they need to successfully complete their course at Cambridge. 

You can find out more about the Cambridge application process on the University’s website.  Details specific to Queens’ can be found on our application timeline and process, admissions assessments and submitted work and interviews pages.

I chose Queens’ because of the link to my home area of Bradford and the support that the access team gave me in my application. Upon visiting Queens’ I loved the friendly and welcoming environment; it felt like somewhere I would feel at home! I feel like coming here has just confirmed this, I love walking through College and bumping into people I know and I also love meeting new people here too who are all so friendly and helpful. I couldn’t have picked a better College.
