Upcoming Events for Prospective Applicants in 2021-22

Building on the success of our Summer Preparation Programme, our new Academic Enrichment Programme will support high-achieving state school students and instil ‘university readiness’. The Academic Enrichment Programme will consist of weekly, evening sessions from January to May, and a shorter intensive programme over the summer. It will provide supplementary academic support for talented, deserving students and widen their intellectual horizons, giving them the best chance of achieving at their full potential.

In order to be eligible for the programme students need to be:

  • In Year 12 in England or Wales, S5 in Scotland, or Year 13 in Northern Ireland in the academic year 2021-22

  • Attending a non-fee paying school in the United Kingdom

  • On track to achieve at least A*AA in A-Levels (or equivalent: 40-42 points in the IB, with 776 at Higher Level; A1, A2, A2 in Advanced Highers)

You can find further information and apply for the programme here.

We are hosting a regular series of interactive webinars throughout the academic year to support Y11-13 students through the Cambridge application process. 

Sessions include:

  • Advice for prospective applicants on personal statements, admissions assessments and interviews
  • Information about Cambridge and Lucy Cavendish College
  • Comprehensive subject choice guidance for Year 11 (or equivalent) students

We are delighted to be collaborating with a group of Cambridge Colleges on ClickCambridge 2021/22! ClickCambridge is an online programme which aims to equip students with the information and skills needed to apply to selective universities. The programme is for UK-domiciled Bangladeshi, Pakistani and Arab (BPA)/mixed BPA students who are in Year 12.

This year’s programme contains a range of monthly sessions which will address various aspects of university applications and the student experience. There will also be opportunities to develop key study skills and extend subject-specific knowledge.

You can find further details and apply for the programme here.

College tours are currently suspended until 2022. Check back here in the new year for upcoming tour dates and details of how to register.
