Here you can find short guides to introduce the individual subjects offered at St Catharine's College.

Important changes to assessment dates for 2022: Registration for Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing closes on 30 September. Late registration will not be possible and may result in the application being invalid. Assessments will take place on 18 & 19 October. Find out more.

The Directors of Studies at St Catharine's who teach in each subject have developed short guides to give a brief flavour of what you can expect - including details about admissions, the structure of the course, and the academics at the College who teach that subject. 

Please note that we do not admit undergraduates to read Architecture, Education, Linguistics, or History of Art. We welcome applicants in every other subject. In addition, please note that we do not admit applicants in Law, Medicine or Veterinary Medicine who already hold a degree.
