What happens after you submit your Graduate Application?
Applications are submitted centrally using the University of Cambridge’s CamSIS Self-Service system via the Graduate Admissions Office. Please make sure that you read the information on their website carefully and several weeks before the deadline you are applying for.
Please note that after submitting the online application form, there may be a delay of up to 48 hours before you are able to access your CamSIS self-service account and submit supporting documentation.
After an applicant has uploaded and submitted their complete Applicant Portal and supporting documentation, they will receive an automated confirmation e-mail from the Graduate Admissions team. All graduate applications are processed centrally by the Graduate Admissions Office and then made available to the Faculty.
All graduate applications are then assessed and reviewed internally by the Faculty’s Degree Committee who then decide whether to accept or reject an application.
Please note: Any applicants who the Degree Committee wish to make an offer to must be interviewed either in person or via Skype. Shortly after an applicants graduate application has been reviewed by the Degree Committee, the applicants CamSIS Self-Service page is updated with either a conditional offer or a reject. This process can sometimes take a while after their application has been reviewed by the Degree Committee regardless of the applicant’s date of submission.
Any applicants who have been given a conditional offer of acceptance by the Faculty and who are deemed to be outstanding will then be considered for funding (depending on their funding status). Please note: It is essential that applicants who wish to be considered for funding tick the relevant boxes in Section B of their Applicant Portal otherwise they cannot be entered for funding competitions.
