what age do you start university
There’s no age requirement for admission to Cambridge, although the vast majority of undergraduates are 18 years or older when they start their course. If you’ll be over 21 when you start your course you are classified as a mature student.
Applicants who’ll be under 18 on admission should seek advice from a College Admissions Tutor as early as possible to discuss their application. If they’re considering Medicine, they should also read the advice regarding age requirements for this course in the Medicine course entry.
If you are declined admission, you may appeal in writing to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic).
If you meet the above criteria, you will be required to attend an interview, and may attend with a support person.
Please note that a non-refundable administration fee applies for applications under some of the categories.
