Online Events

We offer a range of online sessions for prospective applicants, providing information and an opportunity to have your questions answered.

We don't have rules about who can request a place at these meetings, but as guidance, we recommend any time from age 16, or the summer after you sit your GCSE (or equivalent) exams. Once we have your details, we'll then send you further information about the meeting.

If you have any questions please get in touch at SLO@kings.cam.ac.uk

Personal Statement workshop 

While the UCAS deadline still seems a long way off, it's never too early to start thinking about writing your personal statement. In this workshop we will introduce all aspects of the personal statement: what things to include, how to structure it and what universities are looking for when they read your personal statement. (These sessions typically last 60 - 75 minutes.) The content of each of these sessions is exactly the same, so please only book onto one.
