All you need to know about applying for postgraduate study at Murray Edwards

Postgraduate students apply directly to the University, rather than their preferred college, for the course they wish to study at Cambridge.

The university provides full information, including deadlines, fees and more, on how to apply as a postgraduate.

On the postgraduate application form, you can express your College preference(s). This is where you can note down that you would like your application to be considered first by Murray Edwards College.

The College does not decide if you are a suitable candidate for a course. This is dealt with by the University Department or Faculty concerned. Colleges only receive applications after the University Department or Faculty has made an offer of entry through the University's Student Registry.

The College then contacts applicants (by email) confirming the offer of a College place.

However, you are welcome to contact us if you would like to visit the College or if you have any College-specific questions.
