Pre-Doctoral Programme in Cambridge About This Programme This programme has been developed for UK, EU and international students intending to undertake MPhil and/or doctoral studies, whether PhD or DBA, in the English medium. Being accepted for doctoral study by universities throughout the world is increasingly competitive.
