The University of Cambridge has recognised the undergraduate degree of Asian University for Women (AUW) as a qualification for entry to its postgraduate programmes.     

With this, the AUW graduates will now be eligible to apply directly upon completion of their undergraduate degree for a range of subjects offered by Cambridge. 

The Lucy Cavendish College at the University of Cambridge will also offer an annual scholarship dedicated to Lady Judy Moody-Stuart, a benefactor and long-time supporter of AUW and vice chair of the university Support Foundation in London.   

Lucy Cavendish College President Dame Professor Madeleine Atkins accompanied by Lady Judy Moody-Stuart visited the AUW in April this year to mark the creation of this prestigious scholarship.

Professor Madeleine also announced that the AUW Vice Chancellor (VC) Professor Nirmala Rao has been appointed a honourary fellow of Lucy Cavendish College of the University of Cambridge. 

In this regard, Professor Rao said it is a wonderful personal honour for her. 

Thanking for nominating her for the honourary fellowship, she said she was looking forward to work with Lucy Cavendish. 

Mentionable, AUW graduates have progressed to a number of leading Universities around the world including Oxford, Johns Hopkins, Columbia, and many others in North America and Europe.

Some students are pursuing postgraduate degrees at leading institutions across Asia including Ewha Women’s University in South Korea, University of Colombo, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).

AUW graduates are also studying for doctorates at the universities of Stanford and New York.
