  • Taster lectures followed by a live Q&A
  • Study skills workshops
  • Application support workshops
  • Meet the current student panel

To be notified when the full programme is released and booking is opened, register your interest now.

Mature Students' Virtual Shadowing Scheme

The Cambridge Students Union (CSU) Shadowing Scheme helps UK students get to know what it is like being a student at Cambridge. We especially welcome applications from those who would be the first in their immediate family to attend university.

For 2021 the scheme is being held virtually. The Scheme will take place from 25 January - 19 February 2021. You will be partnered with a current student for the whole of that period, and will be able to chat with them and other students via chat and forums on our safe online platform.

The three mature Colleges have an exciting programme of study skills and application support workshops and online social event for the participants on the mature scheme.

If you're interested in studying at Cambridge as a 21+ student, join this virtual event to meet current mature students and attend sessions specifically aimed at you.

There are just a handful of spaces left on the 2021 scheme, please email the Student Union Coordinator Kate Mcintosh directly.

These events are now going ahead virtually. The next Undergraduate Open Days are scheduled for early July 2021.
