How to apply to Cambridge
If you want to apply to the University, you must do this through UCAS. At Cambridge the process starts earlier than other universities allowing time for information to be gathered and considered. The normal application deadline is 15 October.
How to apply to Homerton College
You cannot be considered for admission by Homerton College unless you include Cambridge somewhere in your list of UCAS preferences. Apart from that, all you will need to do is put "H" for Homerton as the campus code on your UCAS application.
How does Homerton decide who gets a place?
We are looking for students with a good academic history, the motivation to study their subject intensely, and the potential to thrive on our courses. More than anything, our aim is to find students capable of making positive, lasting change for the better. At Homerton, we pride ourselves on our inclusive community and welcome applications from all backgrounds. We collect a lot of information about you, giving you many opportunities to demonstrate your abilities. We then consider your application as a whole, taking into account the following information:
- Examination record to date
- Predicted performance in future exams
- School reference
- Admission assessments (for some subjects)
- Personal statement
- Written work (for some subjects)
- Individual circumstances
The interview can be a concern for some candidates when applying to Cambridge, but this is not the most important part of the process. Our aim is to assess as fairly as possible your achievement and potential, also taking into account your individual circumstances.
