As a Cambridge Master of Finance (MFin) student, you will automatically become a member of one of the colleges. Many (but not all) MFin students live in college, and you will usually spend some time eating and socialising there. Most colleges have their own library, chapel, dining hall and bar, and there is always a great range of sporting and cultural clubs and societies for you to enjoy.
Clubs and societies, social events, and sports teams are at the very heart of the college experience. In addition, many colleges have their own excellent sports grounds and facilities, which as a member, you are entitled to use.
College allocation can be discussed with the MFin Admissions Office once you hold a conditional offer. Please note that not all colleges accept MFin students and those that apply towards the end of the admissions cycle may find the choice and availability of college places is more limited. Therefore, early application is strongly advised.
