Oxbridge Event for Mature Students

For students about to start an Access Course and adult learners at Further Education colleges, Wolfson is co-hosting an admissions event for prospective mature students (21+) who are interested in applying to Oxford or Cambridge. The event will include information about studying at Oxford or Cambridge, the application process and an opportunity to meet with Fellows, Admission Tutors and students from the mature Colleges at Cambridge (Lucy Cavendish, St Edmunds and Hughes Hall) and Oxford (Harris Manchester).

This event will take place at Harris Westminster Sixth Form, Steel House, 11 Tothill Street, London, SW1H 9LH. (Nearest tube stations are St James’ Park and Westminster.)

Mature Students Shadowing Scheme

The Cambridge University Students Union (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 contact the Student Recruitment Officer.

Visiting Wolfson College

You are welcome to visit Wolfson College informally throughout the year. Please contact the Student Recruitment Officer to arrange a tour of the college. Booking is required, as some days may not be suitable. 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.
