Access and Outreach

In the last year we have developed our access and outreach activities, implementing a range of new initiatives. These include support for the Target Oxbridge Cambridge residential, creating the Teach First residential in co-operation with Christ's College, Cambridge, and setting up an annual BME Open Day. In addition to these, we continue with our various other activities, including the Access Bus, King's Residentials, the HE+ programme, the CUSU Shadowing and school visits in our link area.  

The central Cambridge Admissions website also has a section for teachers, parents and advisers. We encourage teachers to sign up for the Cambridge University teachers and advisers' newsletter, which will keep you updated and give details of events and conferences for HE practitioners.
