How to Apply

The College is happy to consider applications from candidates for admission to pursue research, or for any further degree course. 

The Tutor for Graduate Admissions in 2019-20 will be Dr Timothy Dickens.

There is a central admissions scheme for postgraduate entry into the University of Cambridge and it is not necessary to apply separately to Peterhouse. Applicants specify their choice of college on the University’s application form. If the University decides to offer you a place, this form will then automatically be passed on to Peterhouse.

However, applicants for Peterhouse Graduate Studentships must apply for these through the College's online application system, a link to which will be provided on the College's home page by the end of November.  The deadline for applications for the graduate studentship competition for 2020-21 will be 3 January 2020.  You need to make sure that  the Faculty to which you apply also considers you for all University studentships for which you are eligible. You will find useful information on the University’s Graduate Funding page, at  Note that your application for a PhD is made to the University and not to Peterhouse.  You can make your application for Peterhouse Graduate Studentships at the same time as your university application.

Full details of the Cambridge application procedures can be found on the University Graduate Admissions website.
