Clare College Cambridge

Applying for Engineering


Admissions Requirements


Our normal entry requirement is an A2 level in Mathematics and Physics, and it is highly desirable for candidates to have a third A2 level in Further Mathematics (or else in another science subject). However, we also make offers to people who are taking the International Baccalaureate, Scottish Highers or similar qualifications.



Candidates for Admission will usually be invited to come to the College for interview during the second week of December. You will have two interviews of 20-30 minutes each. From 2016, applicants will be asked to take a pre-interview admission assessment in November. Details of the engineering test are available on the university website.
