Postgraduate study

St Catharine's has a vibrant postgraduate community, comprising about 280 students.

As a College of the University of Cambridge, we are dedicated to academic excellence and to recruiting the most able students, whatever their backgrounds, to join our teaching and research community.

Every year we welcome 100-110 new postgraduate students, half of whom will follow a research degree lasting several years, while the others will be in Cambridge for just one year, reading for a Masters degree or a postgraduate course. The postgraduate students make use of the opportunity to study with the Fellows of the College.

The postgraduate community in College is a rich diaspora of students studying in  Cambridge for a variety of higher degrees. Many are from overseas, some are older, and some are our own graduates. This provides a very relaxed community with a stimulating international flavour.

St Catharine's is a mixed undergraduate and postgraduate college, so there is also ample opportunity to interact with undergraduates. The medium size of the College facilitates the very friendly and informal atmosphere for which St Catharine's is so well known here in Cambridge.

You can find more information about applying for postgraduate study in these pages. If you have any further questions, do get in touch using the details found at the bottom of this page.
