Caius is looking forward to welcoming prospective Postgraduate students on Thursday 22 September 2022. There is no need to book to visit Caius. Tours will take place at 12noon and 2pm, with refreshments available throughout the day.
Current Postgraduate students, the Deputy Senior Tutor (Postgraduates), Dr Melissa Calaresu, and other college officers will be on hand throughout the day (11am to 3pm) in the Red Room, Gonville Court, to answer your questions on life as a Caian. From practical queries on accommodation and getting around, to questions about research and being a member of the MCR (Middle Combination Room), all questions are welcome.
For more information on the virtual University-wide Postgraduate Open Days from October 31 to November 13, 2022, visit the University website.
Caius has a large and thriving community of some 280 postgraduate students who come to Cambridge from all over the world.
We’re always delighted when our own undergraduates stay on to do further study with us, but most of our postgraduates come to us from other universities, including a large number from overseas. The contribution they all make to the academic and social life of the College is highly valued.
We consider candidates for all the courses offered by the University except for the postgraduate degree in Medicine. Those who are not already members of the College are not normally admitted for Clinical Medicine.
Our postgraduate students play a full and active part in College and University life. They have their own Tutors and their own common room, the Middle Combination Room (MCR). The MCR Committee runs a full programme of academic and social activities for postgraduate students at Caius. Special dinners are arranged regularly for postgraduates and their guests in the College Hall, together with exchange dinners with other Colleges, speaker meetings and music and arts events. Find out more about our thriving postgraduate community on the Caius MCR website.
The University’s Graduate Studies Prospectus provides details of courses and procedures.
