Residentials and Access Programmes

For some time, we, at King’s, have offered a range of access and outreach activities, while, at the same time, regularly implementing a number of new initiatives. These newer initiatives currently include supporting the Target Oxbridge Cambridge residential programme; the Christ's-King's residential, initiated in co-operation with Christ's College, Cambridge, and the annual Ethnic Minorities Open Day. We are also excited to announce that in 2023 we will be running a 'Small Subject Residential' which focuses on how multi-disciplinary study approaches the issue of conflict and conflict resolution. In addition, we continue with our now traditional activities, including the Access Bus, the HE+ programme, the CUSU Shadowing Scheme 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.
