Information for Applicants

college dorEntry Requirements

Because of the advanced technical coursework to be undertaken, the intake will be made up primarily of students with a first class honours degree in Chemical Engineering. The extent of the course will require students who are very highly motivated, innovative, able to work efficiently both on their own and in a team and who have high levels of perseverance. Candidates who do not possess these qualities will struggle with the intensive coursework. Applicants will need to demonstrate to the assessment panel a high level of commitment and diligence, irrespective of formal academic qualification, when they apply.

All shortlisted applicants will be interviewed before an offer of admission is formally recommended. Interviews may be conducted by telephone, Skype or in person.





All applications must be made through the Graduate Admissions Office. Full information, including descriptions of colleges, funding available and a downloadable application pack, can be found on their website.

In the Graduate Application Form, applicants are expected to complete a 'reasons for applying' section, which should address why the Cambridge M.Phil. ACE programme is an appropriate course of study. This should consist of not more than two sides of A4 text, and it should not be a duplication of the text already contained within the Graduate Application Form.

Typical costs for full-time study, including University and College fees and maintenance (living costs), for home, EU and overseas students are given in the Fees and Costs section.

If you require funding, please see the Funding section.
