You may apply to change your department and/or faculty in certain circumstances. Before you apply, you may first find it useful to discuss any change to your department and/or faculty with your supervisor or college tutor.

Application forms for applying to change your department and/or faculty are available from your Self-Service pages. You will need to seek approval from both your current and prospective academic parties, and if applicable, you will need to secure the approval of your sponsor as part of the application process.

Please ensure you print two copies of the application form and ensure one is completed by the department/faculty you are seeking to change from and the other is completed by the department/faculty you are seeking to change to.

Applications to change your department and/or faculty will only be considered when both forms have been received by the Board following consideration from both academic parties.

If your proposed transfer will bring about an increase in the university composition fee (see here for fee rates), you will need to provide the Board with evidence that you can fund yourself for this amount. See Course Costs and Fee Status for information about fees.

Please ask your sponsor to provide the Board with evidence that they are happy to provide for the additional cost. If you are privately funded, you will need the person funding you to declare they are happy to provide for the additional cost and to complete a financial guarantee form.

For further information please contact the Student Registry (student.registry@admin.cam.ac.uk).
