“Fitzwilliam College is a very special place. Its gardens, library, facilities and buildings all contribute, but what sets Fitz apart is its sense of community. This is a College where you live surrounded by friends and people who will support you in every sphere of your life." – Millie, 3rd year PhD in Italian.

The College has no ‘quotas’ - numbers are limited only by our ability to provide support, accommodation and facilities.  We admit part-time students on: MST (Advanced Subject Teaching, Genomic Medicine and Applied Criminology and Police Management) MEd and PhD.

In the first year you will be allocated a room; in further years your choice is made through the graduate housing ballot. Accommodation is available for all years of study. Visit our accommodation pages for more information.
