The International Student Office is part of Student Operations and based in the Student Services Centre. We provide specialist support to students who come to study at Cambridge from outside the UK, facilitate student mobility opportunities and administer some specific international funding awards. 

Prospective and current students from outside the UK should visit our International Students area of the website for guidance on admission, immigration, orientation and studying at Cambridge.

  • Promoting student mobility opportunities, including the administration of the Erasmus+ programme and Turing Scheme.
  • Administering the Kurt Hahn Trust and Smuts Memorial Fund.
