Undergraduate admissions 2020 - update

We are delighted to announce that we have completed our admissions round and are in touch with all of our new students.

As of Friday 29 August at 10am, 80% of our new intake of home students are from state schools and colleges, 5% higher than last year. We have also continued to build on our excellent progress in widening participation: 17.5% of our confirmed home offer-holders are from areas of lowest progression to Higher Education (POLAR4 quintiles 1 and 2), compared with the University of Cambridge target of 12.7%. This will be our most socially diverse cohort ever.

Looking forward

We know that this year has been incredibly difficult for students and their families and teachers. As we head towards the start of next term, we would like to reassure our new Freshers that the whole community is here to support you and make sure that you have a great College experience. We can’t wait to see you at the virtual Freshers’ events in September, and to meet you in person when you arrive.
