Graduate Education

Graduate education in Cambridge covers a diverse range of course-types and modes of study; the numerous differences between types of courses offered, level of study, and subject area makes graduate education almost impossible to generalise.

Graduate education as a whole comes under the authority of the Board of Graduate Studies, and, unlike undergraduate education, is attached to faculties or departments rather than colleges.

Please contact us if you have any questions, advice or concerns. Your Graduate Tutor and Departmental Supervisor will also be able to provide information and advice.

Useful sources of information and guidance may be found in:

  • The Code of Practice produced by the Board of Graduate Studies provides extensive information on roles and responsibilities of both students and academics in research-based graduate studies.
  • Cambridge Students provides information for navigating all aspects of student life and your course.
  • Spacefinder helps you find study spaces which match your needs. Whether you want to work alone or in a group, silently or with background noise, in a modern or historic library, cafe or common space, Spacefinder will show you matching spaces nearby.
