How to apply

We welcome approximately 150 new postgraduate students each year, our total postgraduate community is just over 300.

College Admissions

Once you have an offer from your subject department or faculty then your application will be considered by one of our Directors of Studies and Graduate Tutors.

We use the same documents that you submitted to the University Graduate Admissions Office about your academic record, achievements, and academic interests. Every application is considered on its own merits using the same criteria.

We aim to keep a balanced community of one year courses and PhD research and welcome students of all ages. Girton accepts students in the full range of subjects offered by the University, and attracts some of the best research students from every part of the world.
