Admissions at St John's

study at st john's

Every year, St John's welcomes a total of more than three hundred new students as members of College. There are significant differences between the Admissions processes and subsequent College life for Undergraduates and Graduates, and details for both can be found in these pages.

St John's encourages prospective Undergraduates to experience the College at first hand, and the Undergraduate Admissions Team will always be pleased to answer any questions you may have, or to meet you informally in the Admissions Office. The Admissions Office can be found on the ground floor of the Old Divinity School which is situated on St John’s Street (entrance in All Saint’s Passage) directly opposite the main entrance (Great Gate) to St John’s College marked as item 30 on the map.

We will be holding a number of subject Taster Days and other events, including Open Days, open to all prospective applicants over the course of 2017, details of which will be posted on the website as soon as they become available.

The St John's Undergraduate Admissions Team produces a downloadable Undergraduate Prospectus, while the Board of Graduate Studies hosts an online Graduate Prospectus. Online Alternative Prospectuses are also available for both Undergraduates and Graduates, hosted by the Student Unions.

Applicants for 2017 entry should note that interviews in Cambridge will take place between Wednesday 30th November and Wednesday 14th December 2016. Applicants should keep these dates clear, and those invited to interview will be notified via email of their individual arrangements in November.
