You may apply as an Affiliated Student if you are a graduate with an approved degree from another university. You must also have been a member of an institution of higher education for three years in advance of obtaining your degree. Once accepted as an Affiliated Student, you are able to complete in two years of study - the requirement for the Cambridge BA degree.
You must also have fluent English. We ask for a 7 overall, and a 7 in each individual element, in the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination. Further details on where you can sit the examination can be found on the IELTS website.
You should also note the university’s general minimum matriculation requirements, details of which are given in the Undergraduate Prospectus. Candidates with qualifications other than GCSE and A-level may be exempted on application by the College to the University. In this case, however, candidates must still fulfil the same broad requirements: English language at a high level, a language other than English, a mathematical or scientific subject, and two other subjects. Three or more of these must be at a level roughly equivalent to GCSE, and two to A-level (A2 level) standard.
Most Affiliated Students take the last two years of an undergraduate course. You should consult the Undergraduate Prospectus to find out which subjects can be studied in this way.
Affiliated Students at Clare
There is no fixed quota at Clare for Affiliated Students. Candidates should usually have a good First Class degree, and strong support from their referees.
We place the files of good candidates to whom we are unable to make an offer into the inter-college pool for Affiliated Students, in which other Colleges can consider their applications.
