Enrollment Process

  • Secure approval for at least 6-8 courses. List in order of preference.
  • Please use "PCSP" as the course code for all your choices for the purposes of filling out our online course form.
  • Students who wish to enroll in Finance and Economics courses are strongly encouraged to apply early since these courses are often the first to fill up.


  • Courses are also offered in the Cambridge supervision system. Supervisions are similar to an independent study, and consist of in-depth research on a specific topic..
  • If you would like to opt for a supervision, please indicate this in your course selection form, and make sure to mention this to your program advisor.
  • See here for more details.

Official course registration will take place prior to arrival. You will be enrolled in your top three classes, unless they are full. Changes to your class schedule can be made in certain situations, even after you are enrolled; speak with your program advisor if you wish to make changes.


Students who select the Supervision option will be charged an additional course fee.
