*Please note that due to COVID19, we are not able to consider any applications for Visiting Students or Junior Year Abroad students for the 2022-23 academic year.*
Newnham College considers applications for Visiting Students from any female student wishing to study at Newnham for a year. We also consider Junior Year Abroad places for students studying at Columbia University.
Visiting Students (including for Studienstifung and DAAD students from Germany)
We usually consider applications from prospective Visiting Students in February for the following academic year, once we have completed the general undergraduate admissions process and know how many places we will have available for Visiting Students.
If you would like to apply, we require you to complete an application form and we would also like to receive a reference from your current tutor, a personal statement about why you are applying to spend a year in Cambridge, and an example of written work in English.
Applications with accompanying documentation should be received by 31 January for entry in October of the same year. Applicants are free to apply to other Colleges as well, but as requirements may differ, we would advise contacting the individual College Admissions Office for information in each case.
If you wish to make an application for a place as a Visiting Student, please contact the Newnham College Admissions Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Junior Year Abroad Students
If you are studying at Columbia University, you may be considered for a place as a Junior Year Abroad at Newnham College. This application process is handled by the Office of Global Programmes at Columbia so please contact them directly if you wish to be considered.
Visiting and Junior Year Abroad Student Fees
Visiting and Junior Year Abroad students pay the standard University tuition fee for which the figure is dependent on their fee status. Information on University tuition fees can be found on the Undergraduate Study finance webpages.
The College fee is also applicable which, for 2020-21, is GBP 9,500 (expect an annual increase). We also suggest that students budget approximately GBP 10,950 for living expenses, including accommodation.
If you are offered a place, we would need to see guarantees from students’ families or other sponsors to confirm these costs could be met.
