Outreach Programme

This fund supports our Schools Liaison and Outreach Officer as she works with schools to encourage talented pupils to apply to Cambridge regardless of their background. In 2022 she is also promoting the new Foundation Year in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences for those whose circumstances have prevented them from realising their academic potential.

We encourage applications from students with strong academic potential from all financial backgrounds. Our outreach efforts focus on those who might think Cambridge is too expensive or ‘not for them’. Our Schools Liaison and Outreach Officer visits schools with no tradition of sending students to Oxbridge, organises subject Taster Days and runs an email Q&A list for over 850 teachers. She also organises wider recruitment initiatives such as the Essay Prize.
