Common Questions About Eligibility
Can I apply if I am under 18?
Although we normally expect students to be 18 on entry we are prepared to consider those under 18 on a case by case basis. We take into account your ability and maturity and the particular requirements of the subject you wish to study.
Can I apply if I am a 'mature' applicant?
We welcome applications from those over 18 and this includes 'mature' applicants (a term usually used at Cambridge to refer to those over 21). Those who are over 21 might also like to seek advice from the four Cambridge Colleges that take mature students only (Hughes Hall, Lucy Cavendish, St Edmund's and Wolfson).
Can I apply if I am a male student?
No we are very sorry, Murray Edwards College does not consider applications from men wishing to study as undergraduates.
Can I apply to study at Murray Edwards College for just one year as part of my undergraduate studies elsewhere?
This is only possible in connection with a designated and agreed scheme eg Erasmus in Law). We are sorry but the limited consideration we were able to give to students from a small set of US universities has now ceased.
Can I transfer from another UK University?
The University does not normally consider transfers from another UK university in order to study the same, or a similar, subject.
