Information for applicants

Important note: These pages contain helpful information for applicants in the 2014-15 application round. Details will change for the 2015-16 admissions round.

We know it's pretty stressful applying to University so please use these pages as a way to put your mind at ease. We'll be updating them regularly throughout the process, so keep checking back!

Your main points of contact in the first instance will be Kathy and Martin in the Admissions Office. Formerly an English student at Homerton College, Kathy Purdy is now the Admissions Coordinator at Peterhouse so she knows what it's like to be on both sides of the Cambridge application process. You'll also hear from Martin Thompson, who works as the Admissions Assistant. Martin was a student at Magdalene College studying Biological Natural Sciences as an undergraduate, later going on to do a PhD on the wing patterns of butterflies. Please don't hesitate to contact either of us on admissions@pet.cam.ac.uk or 01223 338223 if you have any problems or queries.
