Teachers and schools

We encourage applications from pupils whose schools have little or no experience of sending students to Cambridge, or who may be the first in their family to go on to higher education.

Our admissions team can answer any questions you might have, help you challenge myths about what sort of person goes to Cambridge, and help you support your pupils through the application process.

With many events and activities aimed at recruitment, outreach, and widening participation, we aim to:

  • Raise aspirations about university choice
  • Help young people make informed decisions about education after age 16
  • Provide information, advice, and guidance about higher education and UCAS applications, both to Cambridge and to other universities.

If you're a teacher or a member of school staff and you'd like to know more about the work we do, or you'd like to arrange an event for your school, please contact our Schools Liaison Officer Josie by calling 01223 766529 or emailing
