Foundation Year


Admissions decisions at the University of Cambridge are based solely on academic criteria – your ability and your potential. Along with all the other information you provide, interviews help Admissions Tutors to assess your application.

In 2021-22, we’ll be interviewing all shortlisted applicants virtually. Though your interview will be online, the aims and content will still be the same as in-person interviews. 

The Foundation Year interviews will be held in the last week of March. You should aim to avoid making unbreakable commitments during this period.

We expect to share more guidance on how to prepare for a Foundation Year interview in early 2022. There will also be an applicant support webinar focussing on what to expect from the interview.
