An 'undergraduate' is a student taking their first degree, who has not yet graduated. Peterhouse admits about 80 undergraduates a year and welcomes candidates in all the courses offered by the University except Education; Geography; Land Economy; Psychological and Behavioural Sciences; and Veterinary Medicine.

Our undergraduates are drawn from a diverse range of educational, cultural and social backgrounds and we welcome applicants from all types of schools both in the UK and abroad. We are committed to offering the widest possible access to Cambridge based on academic ability, achievement and the potential to achieve.

If you are predicted, or have secured, high grades in your school leaving exams we would strongly encourage you to think about applying. For entrance requirements for specific subjects, see our course pages.

We hope that you will find all of the information you need on our website, but please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or if you wish to arrange a visit.


It's really friendly - at Peterhouse you have the opportunity to be somebody in an environment as competitive as Cambridge University.
