OXBRIDGE for potential mature applicants 1 September 2018

A conference is hosted in London on 1 September, 10 am - 1 pm, by Lucy Cavendish, Cambridge and Harris Manchester College, Oxford, for prospective mature students of age 21+ who are interested in applying to Oxford or Cambridge. The event will include information about studying at Oxford and Cambridge, the application process, and an opportunity to meet College Fellows, Admission Tutors and students.  For further information please contact either (Cambridge) or (Oxford), or book your place here.

Mature Students Shadowing Scheme

The CUSU Shadowing Scheme brings UK students to Cambridge for three days. Prospective students come to Cambridge and spend time with a current undergraduate, studying a subject that you are interested in, who you 'shadow'. The idea is to give those who have little or no experience of university a taste of student life at Cambridge, in real time, with real people. We especially welcome applications from those who would be the first in their immediate family to attend university.

If you're interested in studying at Cambridge as a 21+ student, come along and shadow a current student for 3 days to experience University of Cambridge student life first hand.
The Scheme allows you to shadow supervisions, lectures and labs where possible, and also provides a variety of social activities to see what student life is like.

To register your interest for the next Shadowing Scheme please email

Postgraduate Open Day 2018

The  next Cambridge Postgraduate Open Day will take place in November 2018.

The day is open to all those seeking to apply for postgraduate study at the University and will provide opportunities to explore the College, talk to Department academics and find out more about the application process.

We look forward to meeting you then!

Visiting Wolfson College

You are welcome to visit Wolfson College informally throughout the year. Please contact the Undergraduate Administrator or Student Recruitment Officer to arrange a tour of the college.

Please note that it is not usually possible for you to meet with an Admissions Tutor during such a visit; in order to do so you will need to attend one of the scheduled Open Days.
