Applications and Interview stage  

Before applying we encourage you to read the information from the University and get in touch to discuss your requirements. It will be useful to check whether a pre-interview assessment is required in your subject and access arrangements and adjustments if needed.  


It is important to tick the disability disclosure box when you complete your UCAS form.  All undergraduate candidates who tick the disability disclosure box on the UCAS form will be asked  to send us an Adjustments Form linked here. The Adjustments Form should be completed fully even if there is repetition of details that are already on your UCAS form. Even if you do not require specific adjustments, we still need confirmation of this. 

When applying we strongly recommend that you declare anything which might affect your ability to participate in the admissions process. We can assure you that the information will be treated in confidence and your application WILL NOT be adversely affected. The more information we have about your individual needs, the more help and support the University and college can offer.  

We can make special arrangements during the application process for some applicants allowing extra time in their Admissions Assessments, relocating interviews but we can only do this if you explain your needs in advance. 

When you have an offer  

 When you have an offer the Disability Resource Centre will contact offer holders regarding support while at University including Disable Student Allowance (DSAs). We encourage you to get in touch with us with any questions or concerns regarding disability, learning difficulties or long-term illnesses. 

Extenuating Circumstances Form  

The Extenuating Circumstances Form has been designed by the university to ensure that the Cambridge Colleges have the information they require in order to assess any applicant who has experienced particular personal or educational disadvantage. For more information including appropriate circumstances and deadlines you can access the form here.
