Your application will be composed of many parts, including:

Each element of your application helps us to form a more complete picture of you. Admissions tutors will consider your application as a whole, so you should not see any one piece as the "most important".



Your Personal Statement

We understand the Land Economy is a unique subject, and that you will be applying to other subjects in related areas with your UCAS personal statement. Don’t worry; we won’t fault you for discussing interests in related fields.

The Supplementary Application Questionnaire (SAQ)

The SAQ, which you will be asked to fill out about a week after you submit your UCAS application, will give you the chance to submit some Cambridge-specific information. Although the “optional additional personal statement” in the SAQ is just that- optional- you may find it especially useful for Land Economy. You should consider the SAQ your chance to tell us anything that you weren’t able to say in your UCAS application.

Interviews and Assessments


The interview is designed to act as a mini-supervision, giving you the chance to test out the Cambridge teaching style, and giving us the chance to get to know you off the page. The exact format of your interview will depend on your college, but it’s likely that you will have the chance to talk in more detail about the ideas you raised in your personal statement or SAQ.

For more information, including sample tests, see: pre-interview assessments and


You will be notified of the decision on your application by your college in January. For more information
