Making an application to Cambridge or Oxford is always a challenge – for an aspiring student and their family, and, just as often, for academic staff supporting pupils and students in schools and colleges.

Run by Cambridge University, this workshop will offer invaluable insight into the process, and revisit key questions surrounding Oxbridge application: what qualities in applicants are the universities looking for and how is the best way for an applicant to prepare.

Who should attend? 

Any teacher who is involved with Oxbridge Admissions, especially those tasked with coordinating applications to these universities.

Programme Outline:

  • Cambridge Admissions in context
  • Admissions Assessments and Interviews
  • Ways teachers can support students with super-curricular activities

Aims of the course:

  • To ‘demystify’ the Cambridge Admissions process
  • To offer advisers a rounded picture of what Cambridge is looking for and how they can best support their students.

You will take away from this course: 

  • How the new Admissions Assessments fit into the decision-making process
  • The purpose and form of the Cambridge interview
  • What Cambridge regards as good evidence of super-curricular activity

Course tutor: Dr Andrew Spencer – Cambridge University
