Prospective Students

Choosing a College

Assuming you have already chosen your course (which is the most important bit), the next decision to make is which Cambridge college to apply to. This can seem like a difficult decision, but it is far less crucial than the choice of course. Colleges are more similar in terms of student experience than they are different, and it is very rare indeed for a current student to feel that they have made the wrong choice.

Many applicants wonder if some colleges are statistically 'easier' or 'harder' to get into than others. However, the University's application process is designed to ensure that this is not the case, and there is sufficient moderation across all colleges that the best applicants are successful regardless of which college they applied to.
