Entry requirements

Applicants taking SATs and Advanced Placement (AP) Tests should note that offers are usually made on an individual basis. In addition to high passes in the High School Diploma and the SAT, successful applicants have normally achieved a score of 5 in a minimum of five Advanced Placement (AP) Tests in appropriate subjects or a minimum score of 700 in relevant subjects in SAT II.

Typical offers for applicants taking the ACT would be based on a score of 32 with five or more Advanced Placement (AP) Tests at grade 5 and/or five SAT II at 700 or better together with high passes in the High School Diploma.

Applicants taking College Board SATs and/or Advanced Placement (AP) Tests are required to disclose all qualifications taken and scores achieved. Failure to disclose any scores may disadvantage your application and the Cambridge Colleges reserve the right to contact your school to confirm your results.

English language requirements

If English is not your first language then any offer made is likely to include English language requirements. See which English language qualifications we accept on our English language requirements page.

Fees and finance

Fees vary between different courses. Some financial support is available for international students.

If you are unsure as to whether your fee status would be home or international, we would suggest that you read the information that we provide on our fee status page.


If you think you may meet the entry requirements that we require from your country, we would suggest that you familiarise yourself with how to apply to Cambridge.
