Homerton is home to a thriving and diverse postgraduate population of over 600 students from all over the world, who study here for the full range of postgraduate courses offered by the University of Cambridge. They enjoy purpose-built accommodation and common areas on the beautiful College site, a lively series of social and academic events, and a friendly and supportive atmosphere. We extend a warm welcome to any prospective applicants.
We are proud to have one of the largest student bodies in Cambridge, and we value highly the extra dimension postgraduates bring to our College community, whether they are studying full-time for a PhD, Master's course, or PGCE; or are part of our varied cohort who are studying part-time for the MSt, MEd, or a doctoral degree.
As a postgraduate student, you will spend most of your time immersed in work organised by your Department or Faculty, so your College gives you the opportunity to meet and mix with people undertaking other courses and in other areas of study, often making lifelong friends. At Homerton, our postgraduate students also participate in a range of activities alongside their degrees, including the innovative Homerton Changemakers programme, as well as sports, music, drama, and other societies.
Changemakers has introduced me to a community of wonderful and inspiring people. Each Changemaker event I have attended has left me feeling energised and excited to tackle the big challenges our world is facing today. Having the right values, tools, attitude and people on my side has emboldened me to champion radical positive change.
"The world has come undone and I would like to change it every day. Change does not come at once, it is a wave, building before it breaks. I support Changemakers because I am part of that wave committed to a present moment rooted in satisfaction for all"
"Homerton Changemakers is a brilliant and necessary invitation for us to raise our game as humans. To explore how to draw new maps for a world with a future.”
Our Directors of Studies, Tutors, Student Union and Support Staff provide unparalleled support during your time here and long after you graduate. You are a Homertonian for life.
