Those wishing to apply for PGCE, MBA or Clinical Medicine courses should apply to the relevant departments as listed below:

The key thing you need to know is that you need to be accepted by a Faculty or Department AND by a College.
Newnham does not have a separate application form for admission as a graduate student. There is a space to indicate College preference on the application form from the Board of Graduate Studies. Once you have been accepted by a department or faculty, your application form will be circulated to the Colleges on your preference list. In order to be considered by Newnham you should list us as one of your preferences. Newnham will consider applications from women wishing to do part-time research degrees, as well as those from full-time students.
We are likely to accept you if you have a good first degree and can demonstrate that you have funding or are able to self fund. If English is not your first language you may be required to prove that your English is of an appropriate standard for academic purposes.
Whilst selection is solely on the grounds of academic merit, we will be able to support you more effectively if you disclose any disability or medical condition that affects your ability to study. We aim to plan support and adjustments as far in advance as possible for all disabled students.
